The SPAW is pleased to offer a variety of programs to improve the overall health and well being of your pet.
It is important for most patients to begin rehabilitation as soon as possible after surgery. We provide laser treatments, cryotherapy, and pain management immediately following surgery and our patients return to our clinic the following day for additional treatment and creation of their individual rehabilitation protocol. Initial post-operative treatments are gentle. They promote healing and reduce the risks of post-operative complications.
Our rehabilitation plans and programs are custom made to suit your pet, your lifestyle, budget, and are based on the physiology of healing and exercise science. We combine a full service rehabilitation facility, credentialed and experienced staff, with loving and compassionate care.
The team, which consists of you, your pet, the doctors and veterinary staff work towards one goal: to achieve the highest attainable quality of life for your pet. Whether your pet is an elite athlete, a senior with osteoarthritis, or a valuable family member recovering from an injury, we are here to help!
