Improving your pet's overall quality of life

Our small animal rehabilitation service is dedicated to helping its patients achieve an overall improved quality of life by focusing on mobility, strength, fitness and whole body wellness.

What to expect:

Every rehab patient must come with a referral from a veterinarian to ensure the patient is healthy enough to undergo rehabilitation. After the referral is made then the client can make an appointment.

A client’s first visit will be a consultation with our Certified Rehab Practitioner, Jodi Seidel. After reviewing the pet’s history, Jodi will do a thorough exam to get baseline measurements on range of motion, balance, gait, muscle mass, etc. Then, she will discuss patient goals and develop a personalized rehab plan for your pet. This will include recommendations for both in-house rehabilitation and at-home exercises. Once a plan has been created, the treatment can begin.

  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Sprains and strains
  • Neurologic conditions
  • Weight management
  • Arthritis
  • Hip dysplasia

Possible treatment options include:

  • Underwater treadmill therapy
