Physical therapy and sports medicine are no longer just for humans. With our K9 Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine program at SportsVet Animal Medical Center, we offer a wide range of physical therapies to enhance your pet's performance and improve their quality of life.
Our team of professionals is dedicated to using sound medical principles and therapeutic techniques to achieve desired outcomes for your furry friend.
Our K9 Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine program offers a variety of therapy options, including:
Heat and cold therapy
Range of motion
Underwater treadmill therapy
We use modern equipment for therapeutic intervention, including the swim tank, underwater treadmill, land treadmill, balance board, weave poles, rails, and Theraballs. Home exercise programs are an integral component of every pet’s rehabilitation process, and we will design a program for you to perform at home after receiving proper instruction.
Physical therapy can help reduce pain in your pet while decreasing the need for anti-inflammatory medication. Animals can now recover from injuries that were once career-ending with the use of physical therapy and, in some cases, advanced surgical techniques. These treatments can help improve your pet’s performance in athletic events, and a sport-specific conditioning program can be designed specifically for your competitive animal.
Many of our rehabilitation patients benefit from laser therapy treatment. Laser therapy is safe, painless, and fast, using the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. This therapeutic treatment reduces inflammation and pain and is effective in treating chronic conditions and acute and post-operative pain. Visit the Companion Laser Therapy website for answers to the most common questions from pet owners regarding this amazing treatment modality.
We offer a variety of programs for your pet, including:
Weight management: Maintaining proper weight is crucial for happier, healthier pets that live longer, more productive lives. In this program, patients are weighed, body condition is scored, and results are closely monitored. Owners are educated on the proper diet, supplements, exercise, and treats.
Sports conditioning: This program is useful for a wide variety of athletic dogs. Our conditioning programs are tailored to each pet and designed to improve strength, endurance, balance, and coordination in order to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
Pre- and post-operative conditioning and rehabilitation: We offer rehabilitation for pets before and after surgery to ensure optimal healing and recovery. Off-season conditioning program: Our off-season conditioning program is designed for athletes to maintain optimal function and maximize performance.
