Benefits of Rehab

No longer just the family pet, dogs and cats have become full-fledged furry family members and it's expected that they should have access to many of the same medical treatments as people do.  Indeed, rehabilitative treatments do have as profound an effect on our four-legged friends as they do on us.  

Just like physical therapy for humans, veterinary rehabilitation can:

  • Reduce recovery time after injury and/or surgery
  • Decrease pain and inflammation
  • Increase range of motion to help with easier movement during daily activity
  • Lead to a longer and better quality of life for your pet
  • Aid in weight loss for overweight and elderly patients
  • Increase muscle tone and cardiovascular health

These are just some of the most common benefits that rehabilitation can bring to a pet. And for the devoted family, adding more years to their pet's life - and more life in their years - is a benefit beyond measure.  

Take it from our own patients' families - read our Success Stories now to see how therapy at Healing Paws impacted them.
