Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
Most often found in long bodied canines (e.g., Basset hound, Dachshund, Corgi, Shih Tzu, Beagle, etc.), IVDD can occur at any age. When the discs bulge or protrude, it can cause pain, nerve damage and paralysis. The PetComfort Feeding System’s "perfectly" elevated bowls to your pet’s height will decrease any needless movement during mealtime.
Degenerative Myelopathy & Spinal Cord Tumors
Affecting middle aged and older pets of any breed and size, degenerative myelopathy can be medically managed. With spinal cord tumors, it may be a devastating diagnosis. Regardless, it’s important to decrease any unnecessary movement by your pet. The PetComfort Feeding System will help you facilitate a minimal effort mealtime for your pet.
Neck (Cervical) & Lower Back Issues
Whether your pet has degenerative L-S (lumbosacral) stenosis (a.k.a. DLSS) or canine wobbler syndrome (cervical spondylomyelopathy), the narrowing of the spinal (vertebral) canal, especially if it compresses the nerve roots, can be painful. By reducing your pet’s movement when eating or drinking water, the PetComfort Feeding System aids your pet so mealtime is enjoyable again.
Causing a painful inflammation around your pet’s brain and/or spinal cord, meningitis is a pathological condition that can be treated. Even if treatment is successful, your pet’s activities, including any movement during mealtime, should be minimal to reduce pain associated with excessive movement. Ergonomically designed for nominal action during mealtime, your pet will appreciate the PetComfort Feeding System.
Fibrocartilaginous Embolism (FCE)
FCE essentially causes a "stroke" to the spinal cord, which means your pet may lose strength and function in one area of the body. By selecting your pet’s "perfect" PetComfort Feeding System height, you will eliminate any needless movement during mealtime.
