Pet Physical Rehabilitation

Reduce pain, improve mobility and overcome injuries.

Physical rehabilitation isn’t just for people – it can be used for pets, too. Your cat or dog can benefit from physical rehabilitation the same way you might if you were overcoming an injury.

How does pet physical rehabilitation work?

Really, physical rehabilitation for pets isn’t unlike any other form of physical rehabilitation. It involves applying the same basic principles as human physical rehabilitation to reduce pain, improve mobility, and overcome injuries. 

Pet physical rehabilitation is both a science and an art which is why it’s important for your provider to be properly certified. At Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic, we have certified canine rehabilitation practitioners (CCRP) on our team and ready to help your pet start their journey to recovery. 

What are the benefits of pet physical rehabilitation?

Whether your pet is healing from an injury and needs to strengthen their muscles or you’ve been told you need to help them lose weight to keep them healthy, physical rehabilitation can help them get to where they need to be.

Physical rehabilitation has been proven to:

  • Reduce or eliminate pain
  • Strengthen muscles and endurance
  • Improve function and mobility
  • Promote balance and spatial awareness 
  • Facilitate weight loss 
  • Encourage normal weight-bearing and gait after surgery 
  • Prevent muscle contractions and atrophy
  • Decrease reliance on pain medication

If your pet was recently injured or has difficulty walking or standing, call us at (414) 475-5155 to discuss physical rehabilitation options.
