Preparing your dog for prolotherapy is a vital step in the treatment process.
Your dog should be well-rested on the day of the appointment. While prolotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure, your dog must be calm and relaxed for the treatment to be effective. Therefore, try to keep their routine as normal as possible on the day of the treatment, avoiding any unusual stress or exertion.
Nutrition is another vital aspect of preparation to consider. Please follow any specific feeding instructions provided by your veterinarian, as they might require an empty stomach, depending on the sedatives used. It’s also crucial to communicate with your veterinarian about any medications your dog may be taking, as certain drugs could interfere with the body’s response to the treatment.
Lastly, make sure your dog has a comfortable space to rest and recover after the treatment. Post-prolotherapy, animals may experience temporary discomfort in the treated area, and a quiet, comfortable resting place at home can help them recuperate faster. The effectiveness of prolotherapy is highly dependent on the post-treatment care and rest provided, so be sure to follow your veterinarian’s aftercare instructions closely.
