An exercise program can be simple or tiered to adequately fit the age, breed, performance expectations and available time for your pet. Home therapy creates greater and more rapid gains. A pet with arthritis, advanced age, weak muscles, nerve deficits, any that are overweight, or even athletes working regularly at their sport can all improve by having all joints in motion and some sort of stretching exercise on a regular basis.
