Physical Rehabilitation

Just as people need physical therapy for various orthopedic and neurological conditions, so do our canine and feline companions. By providing a comfortable and caring atmosphere geared towards helping animals find balance and good health, we strive to increase the recovery speed and mobility potential after surgery, injury, and disease, giving your pet a new lease on life. We utilize proven exercises, stretches and massage geared toward improving mobility, flexibility and minimizing pain for your pet.

All rehabilitation sessions are conducted by a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner with treatments tailored to meet each pet’s individual needs. We can also create an easy-to-follow and effective home care plan for your pet, keeping in mind your own schedule, abilities, and comfort level.

Physical rehabilitation is not only for post-operative recovery, as it can be also used to stimulate weight loss. Unfortunately, obesity in pets is an extremely common issue and it does not come without its own set of health concerns. Not only does an overweight pet put extra pressure on bones and joints that could result in painful movement, but obesity also adds an unnecessary burden on the heart, which could cause issues down the line. If you are struggling to regulate your cat or dog’s weight, be sure to give us a call and see how physical rehabilitation can help.
