Physical rehabilitation is an essential tool in veterinary medicine for many purposes, such as reducing pain and inflammation, improving mobility and function, achieving neuromuscular re-education and increasing the overall comfort of your pet as he or she recovers from injury, illness, and more. At Veterinary Surgical Centers Rehabilitation (VSCR), physical rehabilitation is part of our standard of care, ensuring clients and patients are supported throughout the entire recovery process.

Just like humans, pets can greatly benefit from physical rehabilitation as they recover from joint and muscle trauma and surgery, and to promote geriatric wellness, weight loss, and strength training programs. We see rehabilitation as an essential tool for reducing pain and inflammation and improving mobility and function.
We encourage pet owners to take an active role in their pet’s recovery. Our certified rehabilitation practitioners work with you, the pet owner, to build a customized program as well as a home-based exercise plan for your pet. Offering the latest techniques, including an underwater treadmill, acupuncture, laser therapy, and more, we are committed to making sure your pet’s road to recovery and optimum health is as smooth as possible.
