    Mobility is a biggie for dogs

    By Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

    Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM has 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. His love of dogs and passion for natural healing and nutrition led him to writing, teaching and helping people create health naturally, without drugs, chemicals and processed food.

    Why mobility is the no.1 cause of losing our dogs and what we can do about it

    It is not an understatement to say that when it comes to dogs, good mobility equals longevity. If you have lost a dog before or live with a senior dog, you know very well what I mean.

    When my first dog, Skai, got older, I was able to keep him mobile until the very last month of his life and I would love to share how I did that with you. My clients and dog lovers tell me that the worst part of seeing our dogs decline is not knowing what to do, which makes sense. Worrying about our dog's health is draining but we can feel better by being prepared with a plan, rather than helplessly watch our dogs decline.

    Recently, I did a live broadcast on Mobility and Arthritis which contains information on how to help aging dogs naturally without side-effect causing drugs and chemicals. These conventional meds called NSAIDS cause stomach ulcers, liver and kidney disease, and negatively impact healing. Sometimes, steroid injections are also used which only cover up the problem for a short while, meanwhile, the destruction goes on, along with hormonal disruption and faster aging.

    If you are interested in more details on what exactly is in the broadcast, here is a breakdown:

    0:45        Why mobility equals longevity
    2:10        How to achieve optimal joint and muscle function

    37:10      Why drugs such as NSAIDs make mobility worse
    40:04      Kibble versus a whole-food raw or cooked diet comparison
    45:00      Why a good diet isn’t enough due to soil depletion 
    47:42      Why essential nutrients are important for your dog's mobility

    The info in the video below is not only for senior and ageing dogs but it is also good for younger dogs to avoid mistakes that lead to injuries, decreased mobility, and a shortened lifespan. I hope you will not miss this opportunity to help your dog when it’s time. Enjoy!
