At Lake Emma Animal Hospital, we have seen how physical rehabilitation can benefit a patient’s strength and mobility, decrease pain, aid in their proprioception (awareness of foot placement) and increase overall well-being. Physical rehabilitation is also extremely important for a quicker recovery for postoperative patients. Studies have shown that rehab can help return or maintain function as well as reduce the severe muscle loss post-surgery.
Our Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner will evaluate your pet and can offer a customized plan for pets with arthritis, aging changes, orthopedic disease (post-surgical or non-surgical patients), neurologic disease, amputees, and for fitness and conditioning. That plan may include the following options:
- FitPaw canine exercise equipment and gym equipment
- State-of-the-art Companion Class IV Laser (laser therapy)
- In-clinic and at-home exercise plans
- Land treadmill for fitness and rehab
- Nutrition consults
- Specialized fitness and/or weight loss programs
