The field of canine physical rehabilitation has grown tremendously over the past 20 years. Many veterinarians and pet owners have come to find rehab therapists as valuable resources when pets are injured, recovering from surgery or having difficulty with mobility.
Animals can’t talk. They can’t say, ‘Hey, I’m not feeling well…I might need medical attention.’ Because pets can’t tell us themselves that they are sick it is up to us to figure it out. That means that we, as animal owners, care givers, groomers, etc, must be able to ascertain a deviation from the norm.
