Canine Physical Rehabilitation

Canine physical rehabilitation is an emerging field in veterinary medicine. Just as in human medicine, rehabilitation has been shown to improve mobility, decrease pain, increase strength, and improve quality of life.

In our practice, we care for pets of all ages whose quality of life could be improved through our physical rehabilitation services — geriatric dogs with arthritis, dogs with unrepaired cruciate injuries, animals with neurologic deficits, and those with back and neck pain. And with 53% of our nation’s dogs classified as overweight or obese, our overweight patients can greatly benefit, too.

We have a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) on staff. Our equipment includes a canine treadmill, wobble board, rocker board, balance pad, physioballs, leg weights, hurdles, resistance bands, and a giant disc.

If your dog appears to be in pain, is aging or just seems to be slowing down, physical rehabilitation could be very beneficial. Please ask our doctors about our canine rehabilitation program and your pet’s needs.
