Movement is a fundamental aspect of life. Movement is more than just ‘exercise’ and does not necessarily require effort, though it does require action. Movement affects everything, from circulation to digestion to metabolism to immunity. With movement, our bodies regulate hormone activity, detoxify and respire. The same applies to our animals. Daily movement promotes chemical changes in the body and stimulates neural pathways which provoke your pet’s healing capacity and boosts immunity. Movement is essential for learning, and ignites cerebral capacity and function. Today’s culture promotes sedentary lifestyles, and often as we slow down, so do our pets. When your pet becomes sedentary, wellness becomes compromised. So, it’s time to move. Take a walk with your dog. Lunge your horse. Take a spring canter. Discover the joy of motion! Have a comment?
