We truly believe providing your pet with the best modern veterinary medicine has to offer is our mission. This means we also must support you and your pet during recovery from surgery or injury, as well as managing chronic orthopedic and neurologic conditions.
Medications can help reduce pain and treat a number of conditions, and our diagnostic resources can help monitor your pet's recovery from surgery or an injury; however, they must be integrated with an effective rehabilitation program.
The goal of our physical therapy program is to decrease pain, speed recovery, and maximize overall health and well being. If your pet suffers from an orthopedic or neurologic condition, is undergoing surgery, recovering from injury, or simply requires health and wellness work, he or she would benefit from our rehabilitation program.The benefits include:
- Faster healing and shorter recovery time after surgery
- Less pain
- Muscular strength and flexibility
- Increased joint range of motion
- Improved muscular and cardiovascular endurance
- Maximized athletic potential and performance
- Improved management of chronic disease
- Enhanced quality of life
- In some cases, physical therapy can help avoid surgery and reduce the risk of certain injuries and orthopedic and neurological conditions
A diagnosis of cancer can be frightening; however, most pets respond extremely well to cancer treatments, which include tumor removal surgery and chemotherapy, and go on to lead happy, healthy lives. Additionally, pets do not experience the same side effects from chemotherapy that humans do, and often go on to lead healthy lives long after their cancer is gone.
River Trail Animal Hospital offers the latest in veterinary cancer treatments for most forms of cancer. Treatments include diagnostics, surgical excision, and chemotherapy. We will also work with you to help you better understand the challenge confronting your pet, create an individualized treatment plan for your pet, and educate you on how to provide proper home care.
