K9 FitBone Can Help Your Tripawd Dog Get Strong

The best way to help your Tripawd dog get strong might not be what you think it is. Rehab therapists tell us that the best way to ensure our three-legged dogs get stronger is to build core muscle strength. After your Tripawd is officially out of the amputation recovery stage, you can do this in simple ways such as:

  • Asking your dog to walk on sofa cushions. A FitPAWS Balance Pad can do the same thing too.
  • Taking short walks while your pup walks on uneven surfaces. Walking in sand is a good choice. Just don’t overdo it, it’s hard work! A couple of minutes is plenty.

Good core strength helps Wyatt do this.

Core strength matters because strong abdominals are the key to preventing weaknesses that lead to injury. Dogs are just like people: both need strong abdominals to minimize the chance of injuries like back problems.
