Canine Rehabilitation Therapy
Elana offers Canine Rehabilitation therapy for dogs who have experienced an injury, post-surgery, or dogs with chronic mobility issues, from soft tissue injuries, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, luxating patellas, OCD, knee ligament acl/ccl tears, arthritis, post-surgery for backs, knees, hips, hocks, elbows, carpals and shoulders, and many other conditions.
On your first appointment, Elana will do a full assessment and create a treatment plan for your dog's specific condition and needs. Elana will explain the treatment plan, the frequency of treatments and how many sessions it will take to obtain your dog's specific treatment goals. Most conditions require multiple sessions to obtain a treatment goal.
We offer 5 and 10 session Rehabilitation packages that can be purchased at a discounted rate.
Many people notice a positive difference in their dog after only one session. Common feedback is that their dog seems happier and more engaged, and also sleeps better at night.
We offer the following modalities to help your dog achieve the best results.
Massage and Manual Therapy
Radial Shockwave Therapy
Underwater Treadmill sessions are used in most Rehabilitation treatment plans. If your dog has recently had surgery, most dogs can start Underwater Treadmill sessions as early as 14 days after surgery or a couple of days after suture removal. The Underwater Treadmill is considered safer exercise after surgery, than walking on land.
