Stair Exercises – Video

Dr. James St. Clair of TopDog Health and Rehabilitation demonstrates stair exercises for dogs with cruciate ligament injuries. Like many of the other exercises, stairs should only be incorporated when your dog is ready, i.e. using the leg fully while walking without any discomfort.

Controlling your speed during this exercise is key – The slower you climb, the longer your dog’s foot remains on the step, which makes it more effective.

These slow, controlled stair exercises work to strengthen all the major rear muscle groups, also assisting with extension and flexion of the hind legs.
