Physical Therapy for Pets

“Physical therapy for pets, or animal rehabilitation, is about applying the basic principles of physical therapy for the increased function, mobility, and overall quality of life of animals. Most commonly used on dogs, this kind of therapy is known to help decrease chronic pain and help rehabilitate injured pets. With proper knowledge of anatomy, this practice can be applied to many different kinds of pets, from dogs to horses to cats to rabbits to even birds. The overall benefits of this treatment have been recognized by many veterinarians, but there has been recent growth in this field to try to help dogs heal. That field is also known as canine physical therapy.” (Barbara Foster)
