The patient & client work together with a Registered Veterinary Technician who has additional training in physical rehabilitation. A rehabilitation program is designed specifically for each patient with their special needs in mind.

In clinic, our technician will discuss your pet’s case with you & how physical therapy can help. Together, you will work with your pet through a series of stretches & exercises that will improve your pet’s condition. After each visit, you will go home with exercises that can be done by you at home for additional conditioning & healing benefits for your pet. All of these will be demonstrated on your pet while at the clinic.
