Rehabilitation is a combination of non-invasive hands-on therapies designed to reduce pain and inflammation and increase long term mobility. It is complementary to traditional medicine.
WHY MOBILE SERVICES?
In home treatment is less stressful and less painful for the injured or arthritic pet.

Reluctance to jump
Panting or vocalization
Change in gait, stiffness, or lameness
Tensing when area touched

IMPORTANCE OF WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
We strive to improve the quality of life of pets through gentle, effective rehabilitation therapy and fitness conditioning. We work closely with our clients and educate them on the best ways to reduce pain and improve body condition. Individual needs of the pet and the owner, both physical and emotional, are a top priority when determining the best treatment for each pet. We are a perfect blend of science and heart.
Obesity both causes and accelerates arthritis.
Obesity also increases inflammation that may lead to diseases such as pancreatitis and cancer.
A study by Purina showed increased lifespan of 1.8 years as well as improved quality of life for lean dogs.
