Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is a very important step in getting back to health and physical function of animals which have undergone operations or have had orthopedic or neurological trauma.

Physiotherapy can also help:
- Obese animals return to ideal body weight
- Old animals in maintaining good mobility and pain control
- Working dogs (agility, obedience, sporting, obedience, hunting dogs and sled), which often come through it quicker to form after injuries, and training on an underwater treadmill helps them raise the level of efficiency, eg before the competition
- Animals who are suffering, which allows to control pain without giving powerful drugs

Rehabilitation program is created individually for each patient after getting familiar with diagnosis made by leader doctor.
