At Avets we’re dedicated to helping improve your pet’s quality of life. Rehabilitation is helpful for pain management, improving mobility, conditioning, animals recovering from surgery or suffering from an injury, as well as pets diagnosed with neurological conditions and even obesity. Avets works with Pittsburgh Veterinary Rehabilitation on-site to determine both your long and short term goals for care. Your initial consultation includes a review of medical history plus an assessment of current issues and nutrition. Our rehabilitation therapist will then work with you to create a treatment plan customized for your pet’s needs.
Rehabilitation may help if your pet experiences any of the following:
Difficulty climbing stairs
Having trouble standing up or lying down
Limping or favoring a limb
Decreased strength, muscle tone and endurance
Reduced interest in play
Soreness after exercise
Recent surgery or injury
Arthritis or joint stiffness
Frequent use of pain medications
Range of motion (ROM) exercises
Post surgical exercises
Exercises for Daily Home Care & Management
Exercises for stretching, range of motion & flexibility
We want to make caring for your pet easy. We will also regularly provide your pet's primary care veterinarian with updates. To schedule an appointment please call 412-373-4200.
