Does Your Dog Need Rehab?

January 25, 2024

Canine rehabilitation uses therapeutic treatments such as laser therapy and acupuncture as well as exercise and manual therapy to ease pain, correct dysfunction and increase mobility in pets. It can be effectively used to assist with:

  • Post-surgical healing
  • Hip dysplasia or rear limb pain
  • Front limb pain or lameness
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Athletic injuries
  • Neurologic conditions
  • Herniated discs
  • Obesity or weight loss programs

Therapies used in rehabilitation include exercise and manual manipulation, massage, acupuncture, and laser therapy. The canine rehabilitation program at Garden Valley Veterinary Hospital also offers thermo-therapy, cryo-therapy, orthotics, and brace and wheelchair fittings.
