Canine Rehabilitation

If your pet has been struggling with new or chronic pain, it could be due to orthopedic problems in their joints. Whether due to age, breed or injury, these issues can impact your dog’s quality of life.

Canine rehabilitation can be an effective procedure to minimize their pain and restore mobility. Dr. Jessica Bianco, our certified Veterinary Canine Rehabilitation Therapist, can help you determine which therapies would be best for your dog.
