What is Canine Rehabilitation Therapy?
Similar to physical therapy in humans, canine rehabilitation therapy improves a pet’s strength, balance, and ability to bear weight on weak or injured limbs, and of course aids in pain management. Canine rehabilitation is an excellent tool for sporting dogs and helps to strengthen their core, build endurance and stamina, and decrease their chance of injury. It’s great for prevention as well as treatment!
Patients with neurological disease can also benefit from rehab therapy. Rehab therapy helps build a pet’s strength and works on reteaching the muscles and nerves to work correctly.
