Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation for Animals is a rapidly growing a much needed part of veterinary medicine.  We now know that animals sometimes don't just bounce back from injuries and surgeries as we once thought.  Now we can work with you and your pet to create well defined rehabilitation programs, similar to physical therapy for us, which can aid in an animal's ability to full recovery without excessive compensatory limitations.  Through sports medicine and rehabilitation, we can also assist you in creating conditioning programs that help target your pet's areas of weakness and help you get them to that next level of competition.
