Mobility Matters Pet Rehabilitation

Bronte Village Animal Hospital offers an innovative program called Mobility Matters Pet Rehabilitation. This specialized initiative focuses on enhancing the well-being of furry companions by employing a range of cutting-edge treatments. The program encompasses Acupuncture, harnessing the ancient healing art to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Manual therapy, a hands-on approach to address musculoskeletal issues, is employed alongside functional exercise tailored to each pet’s unique needs. Additionally, the use of cold laser therapy aids in reducing inflammation and accelerating tissue repair. One of the highlights of Mobility Matters is the incorporation of an underwater treadmill, providing a low-impact environment for pets to engage in therapeutic exercise, particularly beneficial for those with orthopedic conditions. Through this comprehensive approach, Bronte Village Animal Hospital ensures that every pet receives personalized and effective rehabilitation to regain and maintain optimal mobility and quality of life.
