Timeline Photos๐Ÿ˜ฒ Did you know that boredom is really bad for pain?!Human patients living with diseases like arthritis that cause chronic pain are encouraged to take up a hobby because doing something you enjoy can distract you from feeling pain and also release endorphins, which can temporarily damped pain signals. ๐Ÿ‘The same is true for our dogs! A lot of older dogs may be left to sit at home in their bed with little to occupy them and this boredom leads to feeling more pain!! ๐Ÿ˜ขSomething as simple as an enrichment or feeding toy can make a big difference to these dogs. Check out a few ideas we have for canine enrichment here: bit.ly/2AFWDKS ... See MoreSee Less

It is also useful when muscle tension is present as well as before massage and therapeutic exercises. Heat increases blood circulation, extensibility of fibrous tissue, reduces muscle tension, increases nerve conduction velocity and slightly reduces pain. Using heat packs is most common with duration of 15-20 minutes, and can be used 2-3 times a day.โ˜ƒ๏ธ When dealing with acute inflammation, open wounds and other trauma, arthritis flare ups and postoperative care, the ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ comes in use. Cold will cause constriction of blood vessels, decrease cell metabolism, reduce pain as a result of slower nerve conduction and decreased production of pain mediators. Cold packs or ice packs (these need to be wrapped in a towel) can be applied for 10-20 minutes, 2-3 times a day. ... See MoreSee Less
