Which pets can benefit from rehabilitation?

Physical rehabilitation is a vital part of a pet's recovery and healing process. Whether it is due to a post-op procedure, trauma, pets who suffer nerve damage, or arthritis from old age, rehabilitation therapy is essential for a better quality of life.

Laser Therapy

A scientifically proven way to reduce your pet's pain and inflammation. Laser therapy targets your pet's damaged cells and helps them regenerate faster. Much like how sunlight stimulates energy production in plants, laser therapy helps your pet's tissues produce energy and decrease inflammation. 

This is a non-invasive, drug-free therapy that can be used as an adjunct to your pet's prescribed treatment plan. Laser therapy can be used in chronic or acute cases to:

  • - Decrease inflammation
  • - Improve mobility
  • - Reduce joint and muscle pain
  • - Increase vascular supply
  • - Aid in wound healing

Massage Therapy

Massage particularly can be helpful for pets who cannot take medications due to liver or kidney disease- and for cats, who have limited anti-inflammatory options.

Effects of massage therapy include:

  • - Increase blood and lymphatic circulation
  • - Decrease pain
  • - More restful sleep
  • - Decrease swelling
  • - Enhanced blood oxygen levels

Canine Theraputic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise can provide a wide range of benefits for veterinary rehabilitation patients. It can be used to increase range of motion, flexibility, endurance and strength. Tailored exercise plans, movement and equipment can be used to decrease pain and inflammation following an injury, surgery, or chronic condition. 

Walkin' Wheels

Walkin' Wheels wheelchairs are ideal for patients with limb weakness, arthritis, degenerative myelopathy, intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), congenital disorders, amputations, hip dysplasia, paralysis, or post op-bilateral stifle surgery. They provide long term mobility as well as temporary support throughout the recovery stage.
