Tailored treatment plans

At Illawarra Animal Rehabilitation, we understand that every dog is different. As such, we will work hard to come up with an individual treatment plan to suit your pet’s age, habits, and personality type. We believe that pain management and rehabilitation should be a priority for owners of older dogs, as it will ensure their pets quality of life.

A treatment program may include the following treatments:

Hydrotherapy – Underwater Treadmill and Exercises

Regular and controlled exercise represents one of the best methods to control pain and keep your dog’s joints supple. For dogs with severe movement issues, we recommend a treatment known as hydrotherapy. This involves placing your dog in an underwater treadmill while supported by trained therapists. The buoyancy of the water will help your pet to be supported and relieve the pressure on their joints while building their muscle strength gently and safely.

Massage

Our team members are trained in delivering massage therapies to improve your dog’s range of motion and reduce chronic pain.

Weight management

Carrying excess weight could make movement more difficult for your dog. If necessary, our Vets will provide you with weight management tips to help your pet lead a healthier, longer life and start exercise in the Underwater treadmill

Surgery

In severe cases, we may recommend surgery for your pet. Rest assured our team of surgeons are experienced, passionate and here to help no matter what the issue. Our surgeons are in-house and so are any pre and post-surgery assessments and x-rays . All surgery packages include our rehabilitation facilities.

Laser therapy and TENS machine

We use new -age laser and TENS technologies to reduce inflammation and promote healing in damaged or painful parts of the body.

Medications and supplements

Sometimes, we prescribe targeted medications to mitigate pain or treat the root causes of dogs’ medical conditions.

Trust our team to care for your ageing pet

Older dogs require compassion, patience, and love, all of which our trained therapists and veterinarians possess in abundance. If your dog is starting to get a little older, get in touch with us today to discuss your options on 4213 9333. Follow us on Instagram and LIKE on Facebook.
