Woot! We’re going LIVE today on Facebook. Join us as we chat about Tripawd rehabilitation therapy with canine rehabilitation therapist Dr. Athena Kepler, DVM. You’ll learn about:

What does appropriate exercise look like for a Tripawd? How does it differ across ages, sizes and breed types?

  • For a new Tripawd, what should we be thinking of during the recovery phase and later, when our vet clears us for “normal activity”?
  • For long-time Tripawds, what does the ideal daily activity level look like?

And how do we keep a Tripawd fit with that appropriate exercise, without overdoing things to the point of injury?

  • What are some signs that we are doing too much? And what do we do when we see those signs?

See you at 3pm Eastern, 12 Noon Pacific on the Tripawds Facebook Page!
