Animal rehabilitation therapy is used to reduce pain and enhance recovery
from injury, surgery, degenerative diseases, age-related diseases, and
obesity. The goal of therapy is to providing pets with relief from the
symptoms, pain, and stress of illness, whatever the diagnosis. Our goal is
to improve quality of life for our patients and their families. We do this through a multidisciplinary approach to
your pet's medical care. We hope to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient's life, as well as
providing preventive care to improve or
maintain a patient's overall well-being.
An animal physical therapy practitioner, CCRP, coordinates with your pet's regular Veterinarian to develop a specialized therapy plan based on a pets specific needs. Each rehabilitation technique used in animal physical therapy has different benefits and not all techniques are useful for each condition.
