Rehabilitation, Braces and Prosthetics
Our mission is to use the most advanced equipment and techniques combined with custom designed programs to maximize your pet’s ability to recover, while minimizing discomfort. Services include:
At New York Veterinary Specialty Center, we bring you one of the most exciting new approaches to veterinary medicine: veterinary rehabilitation therapy. This is ideal for those pets that have sustained an injury, are recovering from surgery, suffer from arthritis, or are in need of weight loss and physical conditioning. NYVSC clinicians will provide your pet with the most innovative and state of the art approach to veterinary rehabilitation. Our mission is to use individualized programs to maximize your pet’s ability to recover, while minimizing their discomfort.
We offer a complete line of rehabilitation services for your pet. Just as in human rehabilitation, there are many factors that will help determine exactly which type of therapy we will recommend for your pet. These include the type of injury and the age and temperament of your pet. On your first visit, one of our doctors will evaluate your pet and design a program customized to suit your pet’s individual needs.
The most unique piece of equipment used at New York Veterinary Specialty Center is the hydro treadmill. Using the treadmill allows the dog to start the rehabilitation process earlier than normal since they are in a buoyant state. Using the treadmill allows the dog to return to normal muscle strength much earlier and in a safer way. Additionally, the treadmill’s warm water helps soothe and enhance the healing process. The use of the hydro treadmill may be combined with other types of rehabilitation therapy to maximize the healing process and speed up recovery.
