Aunique and highly beneficial enhancement to our full-service veterinary hospital, we offer optional rehabilitation services conveniently located inside our Cleveland, Ohio, clinic. Pets that need to lose weight or are recovering from orthopedic surgery, injury, cancer, arthritis and many other debilitating conditions are provided veterinary physical therapy treatments through a series of sessions customized to the individual needs of your companion animal. Advanced methods include the use of cutting-edge equipment and techniques, such as:
- Underwater treadmill
- Electrical stimulation
- Muscle and tendon stretching
- Hot and cold therapy
BENEFITS OF PET PHYSICAL THERAPY
Each treatment is designed to help your pet make a much faster, safer, and healthier recovery while simultaneously restoring, conditioning, and relaxing the body in order to optimize overall well being. It can greatly reduce both acute and chronic pet pain as well as significantly improve your companion’s quality of life.
Additionally, this is great in conjunction with diet for weight loss. The water’s buoyancy reduces weight-bearing stress while at the same time its resistance increases metabolic demand and improves muscle strength.
