Physical Rehabilitation

CARE Hospital’s Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners have spent years training to improve the health and quality of care of our cats and dogs as adjunct therapy for a multitude of conditions. Not only is it a standard of care for our surgical patients, but our rehab programs are used to help in pain management; maintain and improve function, mobility, coordination and range of motion; provide geriatric wellness and comfort; aid in nutrition and weight loss; as well as improve on athletic conditioning and strength training.

Using multiple modalities, physical rehabilitation is an integral therapy for all animals with acute or chronic conditions. Our Rehabilitation Practitioners will perform a full assessment of your pet’s condition, work closely with you to determine both your long- and short-term goals, and work within the confines of your schedule to provide the best individualized program to fit the needs of your pet.
