Here at Greenside Regenerative Therapies and Rehabilitation Centre, when it comes to injury, we believe prevention is much better than cure. This is especially true for working and competition dogs, as their athletic status can result in excessive wear and tear on their body, predisposing them to injury. Agility dogs tend to be high drive performance animals with an overwhelming desire to perform, which can mask musculoskeletal issues and pain.

Pre season musculoskeletal MSK assessment in Scotland greenside veterinary practice

To keep your athlete in tip top condition ahead of the competition season, March and April is the perfect time to book a veterinary musculoskeletal (MSK) assessment, to help them to perform to the best of their abilities. Identifying problems early allows for potential correction, but also prevention of further injury that may result in an unsuccessful season. Conversely, identifying full physical fitness can give you confidence to challenge them further.
