REHABILITATION & CONDITIONING - PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR ANIMALS

Central Texas Animal Rehabilitation and Conditioning, located in Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital, employs a wide variety of treatment modalities indicated for a broad spectrum of animal conditions. Coursework, study, and application of animal rehabilitation and conditioning encompasses treatment parameters and rationale that have been proven on humans and perhaps not previously seriously considered as being beneficial or necessary for animals. It is our hope that in utilizing many proven therapies and several innovative concepts we may better assist animal patients toward the goal of improved quality of life. We endeavor to support and complement the medical care instituted by the referring veterinarian, pursuing open communication regarding our mutual intentions throughout treatment.
