Changing Lives one Step at a Time
Physical therapy and rehabilitation are a new specialty on the forefront of cutting edge advances in veterinary medicine. Treatment involves a patient specific regimen of modalities and exercises such as agility and gait re-education, balance and proprioception training, use of heat and cold, use of therapeutic laser, and use of prosthetics/orthotics or assistive devices such as carts. Animal rehabilitation transforms the way dogs and cats recover from surgery, injury, and other debilitating diseases.
Post-surgical patients improve 50% faster than patients without rehabilitation.
1 in 5 dogs has osteoarthritis, and 90% of cats over the age of 12 suffer silently with the same disease. All can benefit from rehabilitation.
