Rehabilitation

Has your pet recently undergone surgery? Has an injury sidelined your normally active companion? Our pet rehabilitation services could help your companion get back on his or her feet.

Recovering from an injury or surgery can be a long, difficult road – even for our animal family members. Companion animals can benefit from a number of rehabilitation techniques that are designed to speed healing and restore normal range of motion. Acadia Veterinary Clinic & Pet Rehab Centre offers professional pet rehabilitation services to help get patients back on the path to complete health again.

Veterinary rehabilitation can provide many benefits for a wide variety of situations. Whether your companion recently underwent a surgical procedure, suffered a serious injury, is struggling with a weight problem or is entering their senior years, professional rehabilitation can help them to enjoy a happier, more comfortable life.

The rehab services available to patients of Acadia Veterinary Clinic include therapeutic exercises as well as the use of various supplements and medications. Each treatment protocol is designed to address the individual needs of the patient, which results in a completely customized approach for the best possible results.

If your pet is struggling with injury, surgical recovery, obesity or old age, we want to help. Let the dedicated health care team at Acadia Veterinary Clinic develop the perfect plan to get your companion back on track again.

Acupuncture
The ancient practice of acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can occur. To address these ailments without the need for medication, acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body. Once inserted, the needles cause a cellular response in the targeted area. This restores the body’s energy, thereby promoting healing and reducing pain. Veterinary acupuncture can be used to treat anything from arthritis to respiratory problems and just about everything in between. It can also be used to boost the immune system and create better balance.

 

Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is an innovative technique that harnesses the power of light to naturally reduce inflammation and speed healing. We can use veterinary laser therapy to treat a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to dental disease. Best of all, laser therapy is fast, completely painless and proven to be extremely effective. It also does not require the use of medication or surgery, which makes it ideal for sick or older pets.

 

Stem Cell Therapy
Looking for a natural way to improve your pet’s quality of life? Veterinary stem cell therapy might be the ideal solution.

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medicine procedure that uses your pet’s own stem cells to rebuild or recreate other tissues in the body. Stem cell therapy can be highly effective in reducing inflammation and therefore relieving pain. Acadia Veterinary Clinic & Pet Rehab Centre is proud to offer this innovative treatment option to better manage the wellness of our patients.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Stem cells can transform to become any type of cell the body needs. Your pet will produce millions of stem cells during his or her lifetime. In an adult animal, these cells remain dormant within the bone marrow, blood and fat. Stem cell therapy is a process that harvests a portion of those dormant cells and awakens them. The cells are then injected back into the patient where they can transform into cartilage, bone cells and other new, healthy tissue. Our stem cell treatment involves extracting these special cells from the pet’s body fat.

What conditions can stem cell therapy treat?

Stem cell therapy has been proven to be highly effective in treating and managing a multitude of health conditions in companion animals. Some common conditions include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Inflammation
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Fractures (with or without surgery)

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

In many instances, stem cell therapy can be used in lieu of other, more invasive treatments, such as surgery. There are many benefits to choosing stem cell therapy for your pet:

  • Effective – While results may vary by patient, most case studies show a very high success rate.
  • Efficient – Unlike other treatment methods that merely address symptoms, such as medication or steroids, stem cell therapy treats the source of the problem.
  • Affordable – Although stem cell therapy is an innovative treatment option, clients are often surprised to discover that it is within their treatment budget.

If your pet is experiencing orthopedic issues or has suffered a soft tissue injury, we encourage you to learn about stem cell therapy. Pick up the phone and contact Acadia Veterinary Clinic & Pet Rehab Centre today. We’d love to help your companion live a happier, more comfortable life.

 

Underwater Treadmill
Hydrotherapy in an underwater treadmill uses properties of water such as buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and resistance to provide therapeutic benefits in a safe environment. Underwater treadmill therapy for companion animals is effective at improving strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, range of motion, agility, and the mental psyche. It’s also an excellent form of exercise for weight loss and older patients as movement in water reduces stress on bones and joints.
