Each patient’s rehabilitation begins with a consultation (approximately 1 hour) which involves a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological assessment and a measurement of muscle mass. As well, your pet will be given a laser treatment, an introduction to the underwater treadmill (UTM), and an individualized plan of therapeutic exercises to be completed at home.
Follow-up rehab sessions occur once or twice a week and last approximately 45 minutes each. These sessions will build on the initial framework, with adjustments made as needed session-by-session. Sessions are available individually or as a package.
You will need to have a referral from your pet’s primary care veterinarian or surgeon prior to your rehab consultation, as well as provide any relevant medical history or diagnostic imaging.
