Just as with humans, a professionally designed and supervised program of physical therapy can help your pet regain optimal function and return to the activities they enjoy most. Whether your pet has been injured, undergone surgery, or is dealing with the effects of aging or being overweight, rehabilitation has been shown to help/improve your pet’s condition.
This is why we’ve built a spacious, well-appointed Rehabilitation Center. It’s the only facility in the area with a custom-designed, full-size therapy pool with a ramp for safe, easy access. You’re welcome to attend rehabilitation sessions and observe your pet’s therapy in action at any time.
