Rehabilitative therapy in dogs (and cats) is successfully used to treat a variety of medical conditions. Although rehab is commonplace for people who have arthritis or have had orthopedic/ spinal surgery, it is relatively uncommon in veterinary medicine. We are here to provide your pets with all of the advantages and opportunities they need to get back on their feet.
Rehabilitation has been successfully used for pain relief, to improve strength and function, and for weight loss. Recovery times from surgery can be improved and the pet is often able to return to its prior level of functioning much more quickly and safely. In addition, therapy can improve peak performance in competitive, working, and athletic animals.
At Holistic Veterinary Care, our rehabilitation program integrates hands-on therapy, underwater treadmill, heated therapy pool, therapeutic ultrasound, TENS, whirlpool, E-stim, and cold laser therapy.
If you have questions or think that your pet may benefit from rehabilitation therapy, please contact us.
