Special Class for Owners of Senior Pets

Nov 30, 2015 03:11PM
Dr. Nicholas Albano of Veterinary Holistic Care will be offering a free class, Exercise Therapy for Senior Pets, from 7 to 8 p.m. on December 8. The goal of the class is to help pet parents learn basic skills to help their pets deal naturally with issues associated with aging. While the staff at Veterinary Holistic Care love to see all furry friends at the clinic, the space in the clinic is too limited to include pet during the class. The goal is for pet owners to learn some basic skills to take home.

The class will cover a range of topics, such as: recognizing the signs of arthritis and muscle fatigue; instruction on basic massage therapy; manual therapies to reduce pain; stretching and improving flexibility and teach simple exercises that owners can use to help their beloved pet improve strength at home. Albano is certified in veterinary acupuncture and canine rehabilitation therapy. He has studied eastern and western methods for treating arthritis pain, postoperative recovery, neurologic weakness and muscle/tendon injuries.

Location: 4820 Moorland Ln., Bethesda. Space is limited so register by calling 301-656-2882 or email [email protected]
