Why rehabilitation is so important

Has your dog developed a limp and you don’t know why? Do you want to snuggle your pooch at night but he can’t jump up on the bed anymore? Do you want to join dog agility but you aren’t sure whether your dog has the physical requirements to do so? Has your dog had surgery or an injury that is limiting her activities? If you have said yes to any of these questions, your dog could benefit from the services of Canine Rehab Saskatoon. 

All services are provided by a licensed physical therapist with a Diploma in Canine Rehabilitation. We start with a thorough head to tail assessment of your dog, develop a treatment plan and teach you how you can assist your dog at home. 

 

What is rehabilitation? 
The term Rehabilitation means physical therapy in this context. Physical therapy develops, maintains or restores a dog’s maximum  movement and functional ability. 

 

When does a dog need rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation is useful when a dog has had an injury, a surgery or when they are not able to do their normal daily or performance activities. 

 

Why is it important?

Rehabilitation helps dogs to maintain their independence and quality of life. For working or sporting dogs, it enables them to complete their working tasks and participate in training and competition.

 

How does a person access rehab services?
A veterinary referral is generally required to have a dog assessed and treated by Canine Rehab Saskatoon. This is to ensure safe and appropriate therapy.
