Caring For An Aging Horse
Due to the advances in nutrition, diagnostics, and detecting and treating various illnesses, it should come as no surprise that horses and companion animals are living longer.
"We're seeing more cases of canine dementia and in fact, more healthy and active senior clients because the medicine has improved so much, and it allows them to live longer," said Monique Pierpont, co-owner of Harmony Animal Hospital (video below), and owner of Nose Prints, Inc. .
Horse are no different. An article written by Michael Blanding, "The Old Gray Mare," (Tufts Veterinary Medicine magazine) delves into the reasons why horses are living longer and healthier.
What does Cytowave have to do with living longer? Because Cytowave has the ability to reduce swelling and deep tissue inflammation, it aids in the recovery from injuries and the aches and pains typically experienced as one gets older. We have a number of clients who use the back applicator strictly for aches and pains and helping their horses recover from riding and / or training.
Just because your companion animal, whether it's a horse, dog or cat, is growing older, it doesn't mean their quality of life has to suffer. Embracing new technologies such as Cytowave to relieve pain is one way to ensure your four legged family members are comfortable.
