Rehabilitation and Pain Management Is As Helpful for Pet Patients As It Is for People Patients!
Many patients need a combination of rehabilitation and pain management tools in order to maintain, improve or slow the progression of disease. Most pets have an improved quality of life by adopting suggestions proposed by Dr. Shearer. In working with pets, special attention is given to insure that no therapy is prescribed that would cause discomfort or stress to your pet. We strive to make the visit stress-free through environmental enrichment and positive reinforcement.
Rehabilitation is an important component of Physical Medicine. Physical medicine helps to prevent and relieve distress in pets with a broad variety of conditions. We recommend and include it in every treatment plan when possible. Rehabilitation is necessary when health and mobility changes result in decreased activities and disrupt the normal routine. Applying physical medicine and rehabilitation techniques with pets provides a new activity that caretakers can share with their pets and at the same time improve quality of life.
You can make your appointment directly with Dr. Tami Shearer or she can facilitate referral from your vet by contacting them on behalf of your pet.
