Caring for the canine athlete requires a different view medically than the normal companion canine. What has been done in the past is often inadequate for establishing the levels of performance required by today’s standards. The veterinarian, trainers, and owners need to have a working knowledge of the physiological, and psychological demands placed upon these dogs. To get the most out of your performance dog we want to work together to develop training, conditioning, nutritional, health care and breeding programs based upon the needs of each individual dog and its sport. The methodologies that are used in Canine Sports Medicine can also be used in the active pet dogs and the couch potatoes.
