A more active life depends on effective rehabilitation
Just like humans, pets may need rehabilitation after an accident or medical procedure, to help manage a chronic disease process, or to maintain body condition. The Rehabilitation department at MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets is dedicated to providing not only the most advanced, compassionate and therapeutic care, but also exceptional collaboration and direct consultation with your pet’s specialist and primary care veterinarian through all stages of treatment. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to develop the most effective and individualized treatment plans for your pet’s recovery.
MedVet Rehabilitation practitioners have completed advanced training in veterinary physical rehabilitation and provide personalized treatments for your pet using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to maximize the opportunity for full recovery.
Many pets respond well to rehabilitation, including those with orthopedic and neurologic conditions. Our rehabilitation services also provide geriatric patient support, obesity management and athletic conditioning.
