Once the pain of intervertebral disc disease is addressed the next step is for the dog to return to functions of daily living. This is of particular importance for paretic and ataxic patients. There are a number of exercises which can be taught to a client that will greatly enhance the recovery of dogs with IVDD, whether treated conservatively or surgically. The success of neurological rehabilitation lies in frequent repetition. Once the patient is discharged this repetition and rehabilitation can be achieved with client involvement. A few basic exercises, performed a few times a day, will hasten the return to mobility and the client will love to participate.

About Dr Tanya Grantham – BSc (Hons) BVSc (Univ. of Pta,S. Africa) CCRP (Univ of Tennessee, USA) CCBW

Dr. Tanya Grantham qualified as a veterinarian in 1994. She is now the owner of Animal Health and Hydro, a facility dedicated to physical rehabilitation and pain management in dogs and cats. Aside from a burning desire to enhance the quality of life of her animal patients, Dr. Tanya also loves to share her knowledge with veterinary professionals, pet owners and anyone that is interested in enhancing their life (and the lives of their companions) through information and skills. Her wildly improbable goal is to establish a foundation that supports all veterinary professionals on every level – be it physical, emotional, spiritual, personal or through business education, financial aid and learning skills that enhance our hands-on abilities. Animal Health and Hydro has grown from a single person (and one facility) to a company that employs eight people and has three branches. Dr. Tanya has also compiled an online course for veterinarians – Canine Integrative Physical Rehabilitation – for which she is the tutor and mentor. She has been involved in examining final year veterinary physiotherapy students for the preceding five years and recently took up a post as part-time lecturer at EquineLibrium College in South Africa. Dr. Tanya loves to be with her animal companions (horses, dogs and cats). She is a keen trail runner and experiences great joy when she is running with her horse beside her.
