Our Rehabilitation Service is here to help treat your beloved pet with comprehensive pain management, rehabilitation, acupuncture, and rehabilitative support for a variety of musculoskeletal, orthopedic, neurologic, and systemic disorders.

Some patients benefit from the support and stability provided by wheelchairs. We measure pets for wheelchairs and then work with other companies to get a wheelchair or cart best suited to your pet. We then help assure a proper fit once the cart is available, adjusting as needed.

Post-operative patients: stifle, spine, hip, elbow, and shoulder surgeries, amputation and fracture repair, as well as soft tissue and oncologic surgeries. We partner with board-certified surgeons to build comprehensive treatment and recovery plans when surgery is indicated, improving outcomes and return to function.

Nonsurgical management of cruciate disease, hip dysplasia, spine problems or elbow dysplasia. For nonsurgical candidates, we can design protocols to enable the highest possible pain-free function and, in some cases, discuss custom orthosis (brace) options.

Muscle injuries and medial shoulder instability.Whether working through an acute or chronic injury, we design treatment protocols that can include laser, acupuncture, tens therapy, therapeutic exercises, and a home exercise program to promote healing and return to function.

Osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease and weight management. As pets age and degenerative changes progress, pain-free mobility and function are paramount. We can work together to provide pain management, supplements, rehabilitation planning, and long-term goals to make your pet as comfortable as possible. Intra-articular injections may also be of benefit, depending on the diagnosis.
