Physical Rehabilitation

Veterinarians often recommend physical therapy for aging pets, animals that have been injured, and pets who suffer chronic or temporary pain.

Research shows that physical rehabilitation and the movement of joints and muscles can improve your pet’s medical condition and accelerate healing from injury or surgery.  It’s also an excellent way to manage your pet’s weight, build strength and boost the overall quality of life.

The Caroline Earle White Veterinary Hospital at The Women’s Humane Society offers sessions through our Certified Rehabilitation Technician, Melody Vaio.

Benefits of Physical Rehabilitation:

  • Ensure rapid healing and prevent injury
  • Facilitate return of full strength and mobility
  • Minimize formation of scar tissue and contracture
  • Relieve pain
  • Weight management
  • Restore, maintain and promote optimal function
  • Wellness and quality of life as they relate to movement disorders and general health.

Always consult your veterinarian to make sure physical rehabilitation is the right option for your pet.  Once recommended contact Melody at (609) 558-3373 to find a treatment option that can help your pet with their pain and provide them with relief.  Melody will work with you to schedule physical rehabilitation appointments at the Women’s Humane Society.
