Injury and other unwanted incidents are inevitable, especially to our playful dogs. Our pets are prone to injuries and accidents which makes them require extra attention and love from us, their owners.
There are a lot of ways for us to take care of our injured and sickly pets. One is to make sure that they still get their needed nutrients and exercises for them to recover quickly.

Boogie is a Chihuahua who has a Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This condition affects his movements especially his walk which appears to be unstable. This condition is the reason why his owner gave him the name Boogie which describes his boogie movements.
In the video, you will witness how the owner encourages the little Chihuahua to use his feet and still move amidst his condition by giving him his favorite food. Puppacinno, Boogie’s favorite treat is the greatest motivation for him to walk and use his legs towards the bowl of treat his owner gives him.
What the owner does is very exemplary. There are a lot of means to encourage his little pup but through the creative solutions given to the dog. It does not only serve as a way to make the dog feel happy by giving him his favorite treat. However, it also serves as a way of encouraging him to continue using his legs and body to make him realize that through determination and encouragement, he still can do so.
Dog owners should take inspiration from this video. If we want to help our dogs with certain conditions, we have to involve them in their recovery. It is not enough to let the vets handle their cases. We should also make them feel that they are not alone in their battle towards their full recovery.
