Aquatic therapy has many benefits and is effective in rehabilitation for post-operative orthopedic surgery and neurologic injury. Exercise in water can improve strength, endurance, and joint function while minimizing pain in a safe, supportive environment.

Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Exercises

Offering an extension of our love and dedication. Our comprehensive program combines traditional physical applications with current therapies to help minimize or reverse functional impairment. These therapies are professionally designed to meet the specific needs of each patient to improve mobility, manage pain, increase strength, and ultimately improve the quality of life for your companion animal. Animals benefit from rehabilitation in many ways.

The use of therapeutic exercises, water therapy, muscle work, joint manipulations, and other alternative therapies can improve function and ability for normal, day-to-day activities, and they can provide pain relief, improved mobility, improved quality of life, weight loss, conditioning and basic exercise. Therapeutic exercise is an essential and non- invasive form of treatment designed for use in a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

These activities strengthen specific muscles, increase flexibility, minimize pain, develop coordination and body awareness, as well as to improve movement quality.

HDCT Scanner

  • 1481x higher resolution than conventional CT

  • 60-90% lower radiation than conventional CT

  • Fluoroscopy-ready for minimally invasive interventions

  • Your pet will be sedated or anesthetized during the study but will be under the constant care of our licensed nurses.

You can feel comfortable knowing your pet is receiving the best care possible because we are leveraging the most advanced imaging technology in the world to optimize the outcome. Our HD CT can scan as much of your pet as needed so we can optimally diagnose and treat with the greatest confidence.

We also use it as a fluoroscopy platform allowing us to see real time, moving, x-ray images to help with diagnosis and aid us in minimally invasive procedures.


A pain-free, and low-risk way to maintain your pet’s homeostasis—bodily balance—and general wellness. Acupuncture is completely safe and does not require anesthesia. Acupuncture is at the forefront of veterinary medicine and we are proud to offer them to you!

Acupuncture can treat many ailments, from gastrointestinal and neurological problems, to allergies, to chronic muscular or joint pain.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation is the therapeutic application of a controlled electric current. This modality is effective for the treatment of various orthopedic and neurologic diseases to assist with the management of acute or chronic pain, accelerate healing, and to delay muscle atrophy.

Cold Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy works by directing cold laser light to an injured or otherwise affected area of your pet’s body. The light increases blood flow and stimulates the cells in the area, encouraging faster healing and reducing inflammation and pain.

Laser therapy can treat:

  • Postoperative pain and discomfort

  • Anal gland abscesses

  • Chronic skin conditions

  • Ear infections

  • Arthritis

  • Tissue injuries, sprains and strain


Used to reduce swelling and inflammation in your pet. It relieves pain by reducing damage to muscles immediately after an injury, surgery or heavy exercise. In addition, cold therapy will decrease muscle spasms and lead to faster healing.
