LupoMove® puppy – The puppy consultation hour
The LupoMove® is a trademarked prevention and prophylaxis programme for dogs of all ages, whether household pets, or working dogs.
The new book of the same name, LupoMove® Puppy, will soon be available for you in our shop. The book is about my new prevention programme designed for puppies to ensure their healthy development. In addition, the LupoMove® Puppy consultation will provide you with all the information you need about movement, skeletal health, a professional structural, functional and kinematic examination, as well as tips regarding optimal nutrition for a puppy.
As the owner of a puppy, there are many burning questions where the internet provides a wide variety of answers which can quickly confuse the dog owner. From 2019 to January 2022, I conducted my puppy study in order to finally be able to answer some questions definitively. In the process, I kinematically recorded the growth over 13 months of 55 puppies from 12 weeks to 15 months of age. At the end of the study, all dogs were examined radiologically for HD/ED (hip joint dysplasia / elbow dysplasia). Subsequently, the results were officially evaluated at the HD Commission in Zurich.
The scientific analysis is currently in progress, but findings from the last three years are included in the new book.
For example, the following questions are examined more closely and finally answered:
- How long is my puppy able to walk or run without showing symptoms of overloading?
- Why does my puppy walk at an angle?
- Why does my puppy tilt its pelvis when sitting?
- Is the pace gait really inherited from the genetics of the wolf?
- How should I feed my puppy according to his needs?
More important, however, is the orthopaedic and kinematic examination of the puppy and subsequently the therapy based on the orthopaedic findings, so that the puppy shows an even skeletal growth and the biology of the orthopaedics is optimised. This serves to reduce or prevent young dog diseases such as hip and elbow dysplasia, panosteitis or OCD.
All findings are recorded in a veterinary orthopaedic report and emailed to you at the end of the examination/treatment.
