Veterinary Physical Rehabilitation at Nor Cal Vet

From underwater treadmill therapy to acupuncture to bodywork and massage, we’re here to help your pet heal faster, play stronger, and live healthier. We work with dogs and cats recovering from surgery or injury, coping with degenerative or neurological disease, or training to enhance athletic performance. Aging, arthritic, and overweight pets also benefit greatly from veterinary physical rehabilitation as the proper plan can improve flexibility and strengthen muscles, allowing them more comfort, longer periods of activity, and better overall health.
