Adult and Senior Pet Care

Pets age much faster than people do: dogs and cats age about five to seven years for every human year. This suggests health problems can progress five to seven times faster in your pet. The average dog or cat seven to 10 years of age and older qualifies as a "senior." There is a progressive decline in organ function, immunity, and physical and mental abilities as a pet ages. While some age-related diseases may not be preventable, early detection and intervention is the key to successful management.

Canine Sports Medicine and Physical Rehabilitation companion
Clinical Support Services

What is physical rehabilitation?

The use of physical therapy to assist recovery is now well-accepted practice in human medicine and surgery. More recently, great strides have been made in identifying similar methods to help our veterinary patients. The therapy targets restoration of physical function; for example, the abiltiy to walk in a previously paralyzed patient. Physical rehabilitation involves numerous techniques including manipulation, electrotherapy (therpeutic laser, ultrasound and electrical stimulation) and exercise. Physical rehabilitation can promote a more rapid recovery from neurological or orthopedic disorders and surgery, helping to avoid complications associated with prolonged bed rest. In otherwise healthy patients, this therapy can improve or maintain strength, stamina and body condition.
