Limping in dogs may be caused by structural issues in the dog’s anatomy or by an injury. In larger breeds, limping may be due to panosteitis, a painful but otherwise harmless condition, also called growing pains. The reason for limping should be determined as soon as possible so that treatment, if needed, can begin at an early stage.
Taituki provides a solution for the rehabilitation or prevention of most joint problems.
Joint problems in dogs may be caused by hereditary issues or result from an injury. Joint looseness caused by structural weakness can often be seen in the dog’s both legs. If the joint is in an incorrect position for a prolonged period of time, not only will the ligaments stretch but pain-causing osteoarthritis may also develop in the leg.
To ensure the best possible rehabilitation, it is important to maintain the dog’s normal ability to move in order to prevent muscles and ligaments from atrophying. With Taituki, the dog can continue to move naturally and use muscles actively, which supports the healing of the joint.
