Are you the owner of an older dog, who loves him or her like a family member, and you can't bear to see your dog getting older? You may be worried about whether your dog is experiencing any pain and have concerns about his or her mobility. We can help you to improve the physical functioning and quality of life of your dog and empower you to be a part of that process!
Are you the owner of a recently post-operative dog? Are you uncertain about what you should be doing to help with the recovery? Are you stressed about getting your dog back to normal, pain-free activities? We can help you to learn about the operation, proper after-care, set goals for recovery, and teach you how to rehab your dog back to optimal function!
Are you the owner of a sporting-dog, frustrated or struggling with a specific injury or just a minor, but annoying performance problem? You know, perhaps it's not a training issue! It might be that there are specific things that could be done to remedy the situation. We can help return your dog to maximal function as quickly as possible, with adjustments to the spine, ribs, or pelvis, therapy for the muscles & tendons, joint management, and instruction on appropriate exercises to regain full athleticism!
Are you the owner of a lame dog, and you're upset that the lameness is not getting any better? Perhaps you've not gotten answers as to why your dog is lame and you've not received any instructions on what to do that that have worked! We can help to figure out the lameness problem with the most thorough physical exam your dog has ever received, pin point the problem, come up with a treatment plan, involve you in the treatment process - and if it's beyond the scope of our physio services, then we'll suggest other options!
We guarantee you will have a positive experience!
