Our experts have found that rehabilitative exercises can also improve a patient's mental and emotional well-being, and a patient with an improved attitude has a better chance at healing.


Our rehabilitation services are similar to the treatment approaches used in human physical therapy.

Working with our rehabilitation specialist can help your animal in many ways, such as a quicker recovery post-surgery, an improved quality of life due to pain management, or restoring your animal’s range of motion. If you or your veterinarian think rehabilitation might help your animal, we’re here to help, no referral is needed. Your animal will receive a full physical, neurologic exam, and orthopedic exam plus various baseline measurements to help us develop a personalized therapy plan for your pet.
