In the past 10 years, veterinary medicine has taken leaps and bounds toward a higher standard of care for all pets. The obvious result is that pets are getting better care and they are living longer. Just as in human medicine, veterinarians have seen a steady growth in geriatric patients and have had to modify their practices to manage these patients. We at Community Pet Hospital think that offering multiple alternatives for chronic pain is an important adjunct to providing the very best medicine. Rehabilitation is not just for post-injury and post-operative patients. Older dogs with chronic pain from arthritis or chronic injuries will benefit greatly from the strength and flexibility that rehabilitation exercises and modalities can offer. Rehabilitation is a great way for you to improve the quality of life of your furry companion. It is also helpful with prevention of injury in working and agility dogs.
