A state of the art Aquatic Therapy center
Rehabilitation can improve the quality of life for animals with the following conditions/needs:
Animal Rehab Center is pleased to offer Aquatic Therapy, which includes a therapeutic swimming pool and underwater treadmill, as well as "Land" or Ground Therapy to improve coordination and strength. Treatment modalities offered include Therapeutic Devices such as Cold Laser, Therapeutic Ultrasound, Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation, and Assistive Devices to aid in mobility.
Physical rehabiltation for animals is based on principles similar to those in human physical therapy. Depending on the condition being treated, a variety of exercises and modalities are incorporated. After a physical exam and discussion of goals, a program is tailored to your pet's needs.
My 11 year old dog, Caitlin, has always had bad hips and then lost her leg 3 years ago to an illness. Caitlin comes to rehab once a week and it is absolutely helping her maintain mobility. Without it, she can barely move by the end of the week. From her hips to her age, there is so much working against her well-being, so the rehab program has definitely been the best tool we have to preserve her quality of life. Everything about the physical rehab program, the laser, massage, and all the compassionate care she receives has really been amazing.
My German Shepherd, Renni, is more than just a pet, he is a beloved member of our family. When he began to display signs of pain and immobility seven months ago, we were absolutely distraught. The physical rehabilitation program has been such a blessing! Dr. Rhyne and her staff are extraordinarily knowledgeable, compassionate, and responsive. Over the past six months, we have seen a vast improvement in his mobility, pain management, and his quality of life. Thanks so much!
I was so worried that my little guy would never be able to run and play like he did before his injury. I started Taz in the PR program and they somehow made all of the work fun. He loved his PR days! After just a few short months of therapy with Dr. Rhyne and her team, my Taz was running and playing like he never missed a beat. He doesn’t even limp now. You would never know that he had such a major surgery. I am forever grateful to the canine rehabilitation program.
