WHAT WE DO
They are friends. They are family. And they want what we want, to live happy and healthy.
We use a combination of therapeutic exercises, bodywork and modalities to enhance healing and provide pain relief. Our rehabilitation therapies include: THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND, HOT & COLD THERAPY, ELECTROTHERAPY, BALANCE & STRENGTHENING EXERCISES, UNDERWATER TREADMILL, LAND TREADMILL, MASSAGE.
Hydrotherapy offers therapeutic benefits using the natural properties of water which allows for a low-impact exercise that is less stressful on joints, is soothing and can help improve balance. This type of therapy can effectively aid in recovery post injury, relieve arthritic joints and promote weight loss and conditioning.
ACUPUNCTURE, an ancient Chinese Medicine, is a method of pain relief using the application of thin sterile needles into points on the body. It also may be beneficial for reducing inflammation and can be calming thereby being a wonderful adjunct for recovery and the management of chronic disease.
HEEL CHAIRS & ASSISTIVE AIDS
Wheelchairs, orthotics, supportive wraps, braces or splints are assistive devices that can aid in the well-being of the pet. These tools enable veterinarians to enhance recovery pre or post-surgery or to deliver an effective alternative when surgery is not an option. We asses the pet’s need for assistive devices and apply cart and orthotic fittings when needed.
Through modalities such as laser therapy or therapeutic ultrasound, we can treat acute or chronic conditions. These therapies help to decrease inflammation, swelling and pain while accelerating the healing process. Laser therapy is also an excellent modality for the non-invasive treament of wounds.
UTRITION & FITNESS
Obesity can reduce a pet's lifespan causing a variety of health issues such as diabetes. It can contribute to heart problems and can aggravate arthritic joints.
Through diet modification and exercise as well as fitness and conditioning programs utilizing land or underwater treadmill, we can help pets get back on the road to good health which means a happier, longer life.
