Rehab is a way for dogs to reinforce normal neurological pathways, to gain strength and coordination, and to increase joint range of motion. Arthritis can start in as little as two weeks post-injury. Once arthritis starts, it is irreversible. Rehabilitation can help prevent, slow down and even arrest the progression of the disease and reduce pain and inflammation.
After consultation with our rehab-certified veterinarians, recovery begins with having a diagnosis and by controlling pain and inflammation..
If your pet is suffering from arthritis, an exercise injury, neurological disease or other degenerative processes, our rehab doctors can narrow down the issue and recommend a course of therapy that will help your pet manage pain and return to better function.
If your pet has been diagnosed with a condition from your veterinarian and rehabilitation has been recommended, we can schedule you directly with the rehab technicians. They will set up an individualized plan for your pet and monitor their progress through weekly therapy sessions.
These sessions may include any of the following modalities:
- Underwater Treadmill
- Manual Therapy – Massage, Joint Compression, Stretching
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Land Exercises
We also work with you to help your pet at home. We provide you with basic training in manual therapy, simple exercises and ways to maintain their physical condition once they have graduated from rehab. We offer:
- Cold Laser Rental or Purchase
- PEMF Loops
- Printouts of Structured Exercise
Our rehab technicians will always be available to you via phone or email once you have completed your rehab process.
