At Blue Sky Animal Hospital we are proud to offer routine and post operative rehabilitation for your beloved pet.
Rehabilitation you Ask?
Our four legged companions are no different then us; they can pull muscles, injure joints, and have chronic conditions related to injuries. Here at Blue Sky Animal Hospital we can specifically design a program that is meant for your pet. The programs could be a routine of exercises to strengthen weak muscles,or a program to help stretch atrophied muscles. We can rehabilitate your pet back from extensive orthopedic surgeries and help the neurologic dog maintain some muscle mass.
Another important tool that we use in addition to our programs is the use of a therapy laser. A therapy laser is a non-invasive method of treating inflammation, edema, arthritis and infection. The therapy laser is very effective in treating arthritic joins and allowing your pet to return to normal function with minimal medications required. In most patients we can reach a maintenance schedule which requires a treatment once a month. The use of the therapy laser post-operatively can be in beneficial in numerous. It can reduce inflammation, reduce edema and increase healing time of both the surgical repair and the incision site. The therapy laser can be used to treat open and infected wounds by killing the bacteria, reducing the inflammation and decreasing the healing time. Oral antibiotics will still be a necessity, but the need for a general anesthetic may be eliminated.
All of these program are designed with you and your pet, for you and your pet.
