Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

Post Surgery Rehabilitation:

We recommend physical therapy for many of our postoperative patients. For pets with acute injuries, this can be as simple as icing and passive range of motion exercises done 3-4 times a day for the first week post-op. For pets with a more chronic condition this may mean an appointment with a veterinary rehabilitation specialist who will design a comprehensive plan for your pet.

Treatments often include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Therapeutic laser
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Underwater treadmill
  • Athletic conditioning
  • Acupuncture

A word about the canine athlete

We recognize that some of our patients are sporting competitors and some are true working dogs (service, police, search and rescue, etc).  We understand that these pets may have a different expectation in recovery than our typical couch potato,  family dog.  Physical therapy is an ESSENTIAL component for these dogs returning to “normal”.  You wouldn’t expect a Timbers, Thorns, or Trailblazer athlete to not follow their surgery with an intensive PT and rehab plan.  Please let our surgeons know if your pet has a job or sport that they need to return too!
