Physical rehabilitation isn’t just for humans - dogs and cats can benefit from it to! From helping improve mobility in geriatric patients to helping improve the canine athlete or working dog there are many ways physical rehabilitation can help your pet feel their best! From easy muscle building and stretching exercises you can do at home, to gentle massage or cold laser therapy, we can work with you to develop a physical rehabilitation program that best suits you and your pet’s needs and goals.

Acupuncture is a very safe medical procedure when performed by a qualified veterinarian. The vast majority of patients experience no discomfort and often become more relaxed as the procedure progresses. Human patients report a "tingling" sensation or "heavy" feeling at needle insertion points. Many clients report that their pets are very relaxed and sleep well after a treatment. Acupuncture is often used in veterinary medicine to treat musculoskeletal, neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive and dermatological problems.

The most common conditions treated with acupuncture are intervertebral disc disease, degenerative myelopathy, central nervous disorders, asthma, and chronic pain from degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis). Acupuncture sessions will take from 20 minutes to one hour depending on the treatments required. The number of treatments depends on the condition being treated, the severity and duration of disease. Chronic diseases can be most challenging to treat and may require long term treatment. In general most conditions require 3 to 5 treatments before improvement is observed.
