The field of veterinary rehabilitation offers options for pets by enhancing their recovery from surgery and trauma, aiding in injury prevention, and maximizing quality of life for those living with chronic debilitating conditions.

Many of us are aware of the benefits of physiotherapy for humans. Just as we can benefit from physiotherapy, our pets, too, can also benefit from physical rehabilitation by minimizing pain and maximizing joint and soft tissue health and function. Whether the goal for your pet is to resume normal activities following a surgical procedure or injury, to regain function after neurological compromise, to lose weight, to manage osteoarthritis, or to stay one step ahead of the competition in athletic endeavours, rehabilitation can help to make that goal a reality.

Benefits of Rehabilitation:

  • Physical rehabilitation can optimize the health and happiness of a pet through:
  • Faster and more complete recovery from surgery or injury
  • Prevention of injury, re-injury, or compensatory problems
  • Improvement in quality of life for pets suffering from chronic pain or debilitating medical conditions
  • Bonding more deeply with you as you work together to meet health goals
  • Experiencing success by meeting realistic goals, whether those are getting back to running on the trails, competing in agility trials, hanging out at doggie day care, losing
  • weight, or simply being able to face routine daily challenges
