Physical rehabilitation is proven to improve patient outcomes after surgery, restore mobility, elevate athletic performance and, most importantly, enhance quality of life. The clinicians and technicians of the Physical Rehabilitation Service are part of the Veterinary Health Center team dedicated to providing exceptional care for your cat or dog.
Our service is co-directed by faculty members of the neurology/neurosurgery, nutrition and orthopedic surgery services. The care of your pet is provided by a licensed veterinarian and a team of certified canine rehabilitation practitioners to ensure quality patient care and efficient client communications.
We have a full-service rehabilitation center that includes an underwater treadmill, electric stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound and low-level laser, allowing us to deliver comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment plans. Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art techniques for physical rehabilitation in order to maximize your pet’s recovery process and well-being.
