Canine Rehabilitation

Canine Rehabilitation

Physical rehabilitation is a growing field in veterinary medicine, with the goal of improving quality of life through decreasing pain, increasing mobility, and post-op recovery. Our rehab program is directed by a certified doctor and technicians who want your pet to have many happy, healthy years.

Our rehabilitation program includes:

  • manual therapy
  • therapeutic exercises
  • therapeutic class IV laser
  • aquatic therapy (underwater treadmill)
  • individualized home exercise programs

Appointments start with an evaluation, which lasts about an hour and a half. Subsequent visits include treatments and exercises and are approximately one hour.


  • Strengthening to maintain and build muscle
  • Increasing and restoring range of motion
  • Balance and stability

  • Expediting functional return to normal post op or post injury
