Animal Physical Therapy

Animal physical therapy is of benefit in treating a wide variety of conditions, many of which are similar to human conditions commonly treated with physical therapy:

amputation • arthritis • bone fractures • bursitis • elbow dysplasia • hip dysplasia
joint sprains/strains • ligament injuries with or without surgical repair
multiple trauma/hit by car • paralysis • spinal injuries with or without surgical repair
tendonitis • wounds

In compliance with Nevada statutes and A.V.M.A. guidelines, we require a written referral for animal physical therapy services from a treating veterinarian. To facilitate this process, we have created a prescription/referral form, which you can print from this website, or contact us and we will be happy to send one to your veterinarian. He/she can them fax it back to K9 Wellness Center, or you can bring it with you to your initial visit.

After the initial evaluation, your veterinarian will receive a report of the therapist's objective findings, assessment, and treatment plan. And he/she will receive written and/or verbal progress reports throughout the animal's treatment.
