When making a plan for better mobility, we want to consider the following:
• Modification of the Home Environment
• Use of assistive devices (braces, wheelchairs, etc.) when appropriate
• Enrichment Options for Pets with Mobility Challenges
• Recommendations to Make Home Care Easier for You
One of the biggest concerns from pet owners when their pet loses mobility is how to adjust to the change. Also, the amount of assistive device products marketed now can be extremely overwhelming. Having an in-home consult to discuss modifications, products, and types of enrichment activities takes the stress and research out of your hands. Fitting a pet for a custom brace or wheelchair can also be daunting, and having precise measurements is important to ensure braces and wheelchair straps don’t rub, and that the device does what it is intended to – help!
Let Strong Strides take the pressure off these decisions and fittings.
