Pet water therapy has become a common practice among many veterinary clinics and pet rehabilitation specialists. Underwater treadmills are helping cats, dogs, and other pets get back into good health. Aquatic therapy is highly beneficial as it uses the therapeutic properties of water to improve range of motion, strengthen muscles, and boost endurance – while reducing the risk of injury. Pet water therapy can help rehabilitate after soft tissue injuries, postoperative fracture care, neurological impairments, osteoarthritis, muscle weakness, geriatric care, weight loss, and postoperative amputee. Pets all over the country are being introduced to hydrotherapy and reaping the benefits of water sports for pets.
At All Creatures Veterinary Hospital, we pride ourselves with always searching for new ways to care for your pets, especially where pain is concerned. Veterinary laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment that is used to treat a variety of conditions, and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatments. Laser treatment for dogs employs deep-penetrating light to promote a chain of chemical reactions known as photobiostimulation. This process helps relieve pain through the release of endorphins, and it stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated rate.
Chiropractic Care for Pets
The body is a dynamic thing and it is very important to maintain your pet’s chiropractic health. Is your pet very active? Has your pet suffered trauma? Has your pet simply gotten older and doesn’t move their body as much as before? All can benefit from a chiropractic exam and, if indicated, a series of adjustments for increased comfort, freedom of movement, and improved quality of life.
