Mobility is a key factor in maintaining the quality of life of senior and geriatric pets. From frailty and muscle weakness to neurological issues, a decline in mobility impact their – and their owners’ – lives. Osteoarthritis is one of the most common issues with senior pets, so early detection and appropriate management is critical. Standard therapies using NSAIDS and supplements, weight management and exercise can be augmented by physical modalities from laser therapy, pulsed electromagnetic fields and shock (acoustic) wave therapy.
