Pet Rehab Client Protocols for Covid-19


Veterinary rehab services are considered essential, so while we are still open and able to serve you and your pet, we are taking prudent steps to protect you, using masks & gloves and disinfecting frequently.  We are also greeting patients and their owners one at a time outside and bringing in only the pet. We clean and disinfect between each patient. If you still have concerns, please email or call us. We will be happy to answer all your questions.

How pet rehab therapy works: 

We use a variety of techniques and treatments described below, much as a human physical therapist does, to decrease pain and increase strength, function and mobility.


Step 1: Evaluation

Pet rehab evaluation involves a comprehensive neuromuscular physical examination, including evaluation/assessment of:


pain - posture - gait - flexibility - neurologic impairment - range of motion.

Step 2: Treatment

We offer specific, customized treatment plans and prioritize therapies aimed at helping your dog feel and move better as quickly as possible. May include any/all of the following:
