Why Should You Consider Physical Rehabilitation for Your Pet?

Therapy can help your pet safely use a painful limb and can help to restore mobility after severe orthopedic or neurological injury. Acute and chronic pain can be managed with reduced medication. Therapeutic exercises can improve cardiovascular fitness and can be helpful in weight loss management of the obese animal. It can improve and prolong the quality of life for the geriatric, arthritic or metabolically compromised patient.
HOW ARE TREATMENT GOALS REACHED?
