Careful structured rehabilitation during recovery from injury is essential. Bodies heal to the level of stress they are asked to heal to, and it is widely accepted now that doing controlled activity and mobility exercises help stimulate the healing process too. If you stand a horse in a box, or put a dog on cage rest for 6 months whilst a muscle, tendon or ligament heals, the injury will heal, but it won't have the same inherent strength as if it had been put under controlled stress during the healing process. Consequently, although the injury site looks OK on an ultrasound scan, it has a weakness that predisposes re-injury.

In recognition of this, Roger has written some guides for owners to follow and to keep a record of progress during the recovery from significant soft-tissue injuries and/or surgery. This will provide an objective record of progress that will help you and your vet see precisely how well recovery is progressing. The regime can then be fine-tuned as necessary. They are especially useful for keeping a daily record of exercise, medication and/or supplements, especially if there is more than one person involved in the day to day management where things can either be missed and forgotten, or are done/given more than they should be. Both these scenarios can lead to problems. There are also check boxes to make sure routine care isn't overlooked too.

They are available to buy on Amazon, and are linked below through the images of the Journal covers, with artwork by my friend and experienced horse owner, Peter Trott, who has overseen a number of racehorses and sports horses recover from injury and go back to full work.

You have spent £00s if not £000s on vet bills for diagnosis, surgery, and medications to date. For a fraction of this cost you can optimise recovery and make sure that the risk of something going wrong is kept as low as possible, and with the best possible outcome so that what you have spent is not wasted by re-injury.
