Physical Rehabilitation for Pets
Whether your pet is developing arthritis in their senior years or recovering from an injury, our rehab-certified veterinarians and technicians in Moline can help. The goal of our rehabilitation programs is threefold: to alleviate your pet’s pain, increase their mobility, and improve their quality of life. The discomfort associated with arthritis or a torn ligament can have serious effects on your pet’s overall health, and we want to prevent this in any way possible.
Our hospital offers a variety of safe, effective treatments you can choose for your pet’s rehabilitation program to help them enjoy life again.
