Pet Physical Therapy in Las Vegas, NV

Sahara Pines Animal Hospital is proud to have a technician with years of experience and certification in pet physical therapy and rehabilitation. While it is vital for us to address underlying medical issues that may be causing discomfort or quality of life problems for your pet, that is just the start.

Often, there is a gap in appropriately addressing mobility issues in pets. At Sahara Pines, we can create individualized physical therapy plans for our patients recovering from orthopedic procedures or traumatic injury, or for patients experiencing stiff joints due to aging. Well-designed pet laser therapy and physical rehabilitation plans can be life-changing for pets and their families. Watching our patients regain comfort, mobility, and their spark of life is one of the most rewarding outcomes for our team here in Las Vegas.

We would love to work with you and your pet to help them regain their comfort, mobility, and zest for life. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our team!

Is My Pet a Candidate for Physical Therapy?

If your pet experiences chronic or acute pain from an injury, surgery, or disease, they could benefit from a tailored physical therapy plan. We will start by examining your pet and asking questions about their life at home with you. Do they struggle to get around? Are they sleeping more, eating less, and just not interested in doing the things they used to love? Do they whimper or cry out in pain?

After thoroughly examining your pet and discussing their health, lifestyle, and behavior, we can work with you to determine whether physical therapy and laser therapy are viable treatment options. If needed, we can also provide in-home physical therapy to your pet.

What is Pet Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is one of the many pain management modalities we offer here at our hospital, and it can be integrated seamlessly into a physical therapy regimen.

Dogs and cats alike can benefit from this non-invasive, drug-free treatment, which uses photons (light particles) to do the following for our patients:

  • Relieve pain caused by surgery, injury, or chronic disease
  • Reduce swelling and inflammation of the soft tissues and joints
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Potentially improve mobility and range of motion
  • Enhance and potentially accelerate the healing process of surgical incisions, soft tissue injuries, and joint injuries

Pet laser therapy is a safe, and at times even comfortable treatment that can take as little as 10-15 minutes per session. A handheld device that emits infrared light is held just over the area requiring treatment to expose it to the proper amount of light energy. This energy penetrates through skin and muscle to treat deep tissues.
