Is your pet having difficulty with mobility or recovering from surgery? Does your pet experience regular pain or maybe just needs to shed a few pounds? Just like humans, our furry friends can greatly benefit from the results of physical therapy and rehabilitation. At Jules Veterinary Center we provide comprehensive, customized therapy treatment plans alongside positive reinforcement and a relaxed environment to help get your pet back to their happiest, healthiest self in no time.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation can help improve a wide variety of ailments including, but not limited to:
- Post-operative assistance
- Obesity and metabolic conditions
- Degenerative myelopathy
- Cruciate ligament injury
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Hip dysplasia
- Certain orthopedic and neurologic disorders
At Jules Veterinary Center, our highly trained staff and array of advanced equipment and technologies combine to create the ideal treatment to achieve your pet’s full recovery. We pride ourselves in staying up to date with the newest developments in veterinary medicine and technology advances. From our state-of-the-art underwater treadmill, to our electrical stimulation and laser therapies, we have something for everyone!
Our underwater treadmill is highly effective in the healing process following surgery or traumatic injury. Water provides support and stability, allowing your pet to perform proper movement while relieving normal pressure and weight strain seen in the joints. The underwater treadmill is also a great training that promotes both weight loss and muscle building for animals in our weight management and athletic conditioning programs. Electrical stimulation has been shown to relieve pain, reduce muscle atrophy, minimize swelling, and promote healing in both open and closed wounds while laser therapies have been shown to be exceptionally helpful in combating chronic issues.
In addition to our exceptional devices, we also specialize in providing services such as massage therapy, therapeutic exercises, fitting orthotics or other assistance tools, and home care programs. We help develop processes that you can continue at home, once your pet’s therapy appointments have come to an end. It is extremely important to maintain therapy efforts for you pet to regain full function, mobility, and vitality.
Therapy treatments often consist of two to three scheduled appointments per week and typically span over several weeks. Your pet will receive first-class care from our team of doctors, therapists, and technicians who will also work to teach you helpful habits and tips for maintaining your pet’s results. Consistency and dedication are instrumental in your pet receiving the full benefits from their rehabilitation efforts. We offer drop-off options as well as evening appointments to accommodate our patients with tricky schedules. Payment options are available as well as package rate discounts.
Overall, physical therapy and rehabilitation has extensive benefits for your pet:
- Promotes faster healing
- Minimizes pain
- Reducing inflammation
- Increases circulation
- Promotes strength and flexibility
- Increases mobility
- Improves quality of life
Here at Jules Veterinary Center we are pleased to offer services outside of medical needs including full-service overnight boarding and grooming options, and coming soon, puppy classes!
