We can treat many more conditions as well. 4Paws Rehabilitation & Wellness Clinic also provides the following services:
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)
Involves applying a low-level electrical current to affected areas to boost healing after orthopedic or neurological injuries. Pets who are experiencing muscle atrophy, pain and swelling are excellent candidates for NMES.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
Manages pain using a low-level electrical current. This current disrupts pain perception pathways and stimulates acupuncture points to trigger overall bodily healing.
Joint and spinal mobilizations, which allow for better mobility in the targeted area. These relieve pain and muscle knots, reduce spasms and improve mobility.
Orthotics and Braces
4Paws Rehabilitation & Wellness Clinic uses orthotics and braces to support pets suffering from injured joints, tendon injuries or ligament laxity. We work with many bracing and orthotic companies, like Orthopets, Thera-Paw and Handicap Pets, to provide custom fitted braces and orthotics. Sometimes, the fitting process involves fitting a cast to the injured area and then sending in the cast so the orthotic can be made to fit perfectly. Once the brace is made, we will call you to schedule an appointment to fit the device to your pet, to discuss wearing it and to talk about how to clean it.
Some devices only require measurements to be sent to the company. We will work individually with each client to ensure we find the correct assistive device for your pet family.
When pets are unable to walk because they are paralyzed or paraplegic, we often recommend wheelchairs. 4Paws Rehabilitation & Wellness Clinic will work with you and your pet to determine if a chair is needed and which chair would be best. Then, we will take the necessary measurements and send them to a pet wheelchair company to custom-fit the chair to your pet. We regularly work with Eddie’s Wheels, K9 Carts, Handicapped Pets and A Loyal Companion.
Once the chair is delivered, we will call you to schedule an appointment to ensure that your pet gets the most out of their new wheels.
Every plan is specialized to each individual patient.
