What to expect when your pet begins a rehab program:

  • For older patients or patients with chronic issues, we focus on pain management, flexibility and daily activities. We usually meet once weekly with your pet and discuss home exercise programs in between. Therapy sessions will continue for as long as your pet is benefitting!

  • For post-operative patients, our focus is strength, flexibility, and early return to function. We will begin rehab 1-2 weeks after surgery and continue at least once weekly for 6-8 weeks.

  • We have a variety of therapeutic exercise equipment to assist with strength, agility and balance training. Our land treadmill and weighted vests help with gait retraining and strength post-operatively.
