At Jointz our mission statement is...

‘To provide quality, professional healthcare in a relaxed environment with the aim of reducing pain, restoring biomechanical function, thus optimising and enhancing health’, performance and quality of life for your animal'

So, if we can suffer from a bad back why can’t our animals?

They Can

One of the most stressful events we encounter in our lives is birth….yet how many of us believe that children have, or should have no pain or problems with their bodies?

It is babies and children, which are the ones that should definitely be checked to help prevent such problems and issues arising in later life. Like us, stress on animals begins at birth and to a much greater degree if anyone has ever seen a mare give birth to a foal?

Many times the mare is standing and the foal is birthed and falls from a great height onto a firm surface, and then within a short period is trying to stand, walk and feed!!

We then expose our animals to a HUGE number of stressors…..

stabling, traveling, riding numerous different styles, jumping, collection, extension, saddles, bridles, dentistry, harnesses, shoeing, clipping, etc…

the list goes on, and the same applies for the canine…agility, obedience, clipping, showing, collars and leads, jumping up, etc.

It is therefore inevitable that our pets, show animals or livelihoods may at some point experience injury, whether trauma/overuse induced, or due to conformational defects, whatever the cause is, is it not natural to assist our animals in the healing process as we would ourselves?
