Our certified small animal rehabilitation team consists of veterinarians, certified rehabilitation practitioners, and veterinary technicians. We can collaborate with your pets regular or surgical veterinarian as well as provide options for non-surgical cases. Rehabilitation can help with chronic conditions such as obesity and geriatrics as well as progressive conditions like degenerative myelopathy.
For our pets, basic daily activities such as walking, running, and grooming themselves can become challenging after a surgery, injury, or with age. Rehabilitation therapy offers numerous benefits such as improved movement, endurance, and a positive psychological effect for the pets being treated.
During your pet’s initial rehabilitation evaluation, a certified rehabilitation practitioner or therapist will gather a detailed history, assess home environment, and discuss goals for your pet’s improvement. We may also perform a gait analysis, stance analysis, and measure muscle mass and joint flexibility to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan. If you are able to, we will also include home exercises to further help your pet feel better.
