At Healthy Paw Rehab we see patients on a veterinary referral basis only. This allows us to communicate with your veterinarian and develop the best rehab program for each individual patient. Since we are attached to Eastridge Animal Hospital we have a veterinarian on site at all times in case of an emergency, but do not provide general medicine while your pet is currently in physical rehab.
We have the most up to date physical rehabilitation equipment, including a Class IV Therapy Laser, therapeutic ultrasound and an underwater treadmill. We are certified in Fear Free techniques to help those dogs that may have a fear of the water, and we address each patient individually to determine the best treatment plan for each patient and each situation.
Just like in human physical therapy, during your pet’s rehab visit, they will receive a combination of treatments. These treatments (or modalities) may include massage therapy, stretching, strength and balance exercises, core strength exercises, e-stim, laser therapy, ultrasound and hydrotherapy (underwater treadmill). Every service we provide is performed by a trained technician, certified in canine rehab.
We are happy to establish a working relationship with your pet’s surgeon and general practitioner anywhere in San Diego County. Because our staff is highly trained we can provide you with a home exercise program for your pet, give advice on home environment changes, as well as give you support while your pet is recovering.
