Rehabilitation for Dogs & Cats

Although most people seek out physical rehabilitation for their pet after an injury or to manage a chronic health condition, your pet doesn’t have to be suffering to seek the benefits of physical therapy. If you are looking to improve or restore mobility, manage pain, treat an injury or maximize physical potential, contact us to set up an exam. Rehab can also be very effective in increasing the quality of life for senior pets by increasing their mobility while making them more comfortable.

Overview

Rehabilitation services are vital to ensuring that your pet can eventually regain their comfortability in order to live a happy and healthy life. We can create and implement a rehabilitation plan for your pet to help them recover from an injury, manage a condition, and increase mobility.

Why would my pet need rehabilitation?

Most pet owners decide that veterinary rehabilitation is necessary for their pet after an injury or to manage their pet’s chronic health condition. It is important to note, however, that your pet does not need to be in any immediate pain to consider the benefits of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation has been particularly useful in reducing and managing pain, improving athletic performance, treating injury, reducing the risk of further injury, restoring and maintaining movement and mobility, as well was improving the overall daily functions of your pet.

When should I consider rehabilitation for my pet?

If your pet is suffering from pain due to an injury or chronic health condition, rehabilitation may be the answer. Although pain related symptoms are the most common indicators of a need for rehabilitation, if your pet is not living as comfortably as they could be, rehabilitation should be considered.

How does rehabilitation work?

Based on the condition of your pet, our veterinarians and Rehab technicians will create and implement a plan to restore mobility and reduce pain that your pet may be feeling.  We do this through a variety of different modalities:

- Therapeutic Laser treatments

- Acupuncture

- Massage and/or Acupressure

- Exercise Programs to increase strength and flexibility 

- Education about stretching and maintaining health soft tissues for optimal performance. 

- Weight management

As your pet progresses, our team will keep careful records and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the rehabilitation process is successful. Pain medications can also be prescribed if necessary. With advanced equipment and progressive methodology, we dedicate ourselves to providing the best possible rehabilitation service for your dog, cat, or other animal. Every test, decision, and treatment is customized to the specific needs of your pet so that they can manage their condition or recovery and live out their happy, healthy life.
