That's dog-gone cold!!!

I found this article about cryotherapy for pets.  It's interesting to see some of the same effects.  We also personally know of someone who used cryotherapy to help their dog with debilitating arthritis.  Our friend said that the dog was actually able to jump up into the car afterward, whereas before she had to be lifted!   I wonder if Celsius will fashion a pet machine any time soon...

The end of this article also does a nice job of summarizing current evidence for human applications.
