Post-surgical patients improve 50% faster with rehabilitation than patients without rehabilitation.
1 in 5 dogs has osteoarthritis, and 90% of cats over the age of 12 suffer silently with the same diseases. All can benefit from rehabilitation.
We are a referral based integrative practiced focused on alternative approaches to pet medicine designed to make pets happier and healthier. These approaches have been shown to minimize pain, increase muscle mass and strength, provide psychological benefits, improve flexibility and mobility, improve circulation decrease inflammation, and offer a complimentary approach to many traditional treatments for chronic diseases and rehabilitation.
WHY INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?
Integrative medicine works alongside traditional medicine to treat a variety of conditions and diseases - this complimentary approach is proven to reduce healing times and increase efficacy of treatment. Our goal is to work alongside your primary veterinarian to optimize your pet's comfort and overall health.
