Canine Health & Behavior Services
Canine conditioning and Rehab therapy is now available at our training center.
Rehab therapies can help create better and faster outcomes for post op, neuro and trauma patients. Rehab can help dogs recover from injury faster, prevent future injury and extend their lives.
Conditioning can help arthritis, degenerative myelopathy, hip and elbow dysplasia, obesity, paralysis, rear limb weakness, back issues, sports injuries and traumatic injuries.
Your dog will receive a personalized program designed to address his specific issues. All treatments will be carried out by a licensed veterinary technician, specializing in rehab and sports medicine.
Modalities used include manual therapy, treadmill, massage, exercise balls, low level laser therapy, heat and cold therapy and land based activities. Laser therapy will require a veterinarian referral.
Get your dog on the road to a more comfortable and longer life!
Therapuetic Exercise Balls
Therapeutic exercise balls of different shapes and sizes are valuable modalities for canine conditioning and rehab therapy.
A therapist assists the dog on the exercise ball through a series of exercises meant to
assist the dog with stance, weight bearing, weight shifting and proprioception of the limbs. Dogs will be asked to "load" or "unload" the weight of different limbs, while also working on balance and core exercises.
