Whether your pet is recovering from an injury or a recent surgery, our rehabilitation services are geared towards helping your canine friend get back on their paws. Each treatment plan is specifically designed by our certified expert in canine rehabilitation, Dr. Bonnie Wesely. We ensure each one caters to your pet’s specific medication condition with our range of therapies.
When do you recommend rehabilitation services?
Before your canine friend starts rehabilitation, our veterinary team books an initial consultation to understand your pet’s health conditions and get them on a path to recovery. This includes a detailed exam, which usually takes an hour, where we assess your pet’s health, movement, spinal and joint function, physical abilities and overall strength. Common conditions we see pets for include post-orthopedic surgery, accidents, falls, mobility issues and lack of interest in usual activities.
What types of treatment plans do you offer?

- Canine Conservative Management (No Surgery) – strengthens ligaments/muscles to address your pet’s mobility issues and improve their quality of life
- Canine Pre-Surgery – strengthens ligaments/muscles before a procedure to speed up the post-surgery recovery process
- Canine Surgery and Rehabilitation – ensures your pet feels as little pain/discomfort as possible to ensure they make a full recovery
- Canine Post Surgery – monitors any mobility issues your pet could have post-surgery, ensuring successful healing and improvement in their movements
What types of therapies are in treatment plans?
Our treatment plans include regenerative medicine (PRP/Stem Cell), hydrotherapy/underwater treadmill, acupuncture, therapeutic laser therapy and physical therapy. Regenerative medicine uses your pet’s cells to reinvigorate and trigger the healing process. Hydrotherapy uses an underwater treadmill to strengthen your pet’s muscles and ease pain/discomfort. Acupuncture uses needles in pressure points to stimulate cell regeneration and release endorphins. Laser and physical therapy use light technology and exercises to support healing and pain release.
