Protect Your Pup During Playtime

Tuesday, June 7, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

Pups love to run and play, but it’s important that your pup doesn’t injure himself while having fun.  When you play fetch with your dog, try to prevent his body from twisting in the air or landing hard on the ground. You can try rolling a ball instead of throwing a toy in the air. This has less impact on his joints.  When you’re taking your dog for long walks or runs, consider his fitness level. Build up his endurance over time. Take it slow at first and wall or run short distances gradually increasing the speed and distance as your dog gets used to this activity.  Consider where you take your dog. Avoid gravel or asphalt. Always take along plenty of water and look for signs of fatigue.

Remember, pets are family!
