Paralyzed Dog Treatment

A paralyzed dog unable to walk (due to a spinal injury) needs special treatment and care. If he is lying in the same position for a long time, sores can arise due to weight, especially in the osseous part of the body. Big and heavy dogs are more prone to it.Sores produced by weight should not be confused with the greasing skin that can be appreciated in the elbows of big breed healthy dogs, as a consequence of lying down over hard surfaces for long periods. Taking care of a paraplegic dog is a lo of work, that can be easier if we make a foam mattress, or encouraging the dog to lie over a cushion with blankets. Do not allow him to stay in the some position for more than two hours, and if some sores or ulcers arise, contact your veterinarian. An additional problem is the possibility of incontinence, therefore his place should be easy to clean.
