SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation Center is a branch of Animal Surgical and Orthopedic Center. We are your locally-owned, veterinarian-run, dedicated center for physical rehabilitation, sports medicine, and pain management. We are a collaborative group of experienced rehabilitation veterinarians, surgeons, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and nurses working together with one goal in mind: help your pet live a healthier, active life.
If you are considering rehabilitation after your pet has surgery, it is important to schedule this as soon as you book your pet’s surgery. If you wait to schedule, it is likely that your pet will not be able to start therapy for another 6-8 weeks.
- Rehabilitation can be helpful for many pets (and pet owners) following orthopedic surgery, though it is not typically considered essential. Usually, rehabilitation can start 2-4 weeks after surgery. There will always be benefit from rehab, even later in the recovery process, especially as your pet is transitioning back to normal activity.
- We offer a Home Exercise Program for dogs that have had knee surgery at Animal Surgical and Orthopedic Center. The 12-week program provides detailed video and written instructions and includes 4 Zoom calls with one of our physical therapists. This is a great option for those waiting to get in for in-clinic therapy or those wishing to do rehabilitation at home. For more information please fill out our consultation request form and a staff member will reach out to you within 24-72 hours.
