Tampa Bay K9 Animal Rehabilitation Center is a one of a kind facility dedicated to giving dogs the support they need to live more healthy and active lifestyles. We work with those who have gone through surgery to get back on their feet, older dogs that have begun to slow down, and those looking to get back to a healthy weight in a safe and fun environment. We offer a variety of services, so regardless of age, size, or breed, we have a solution.
Hydrotherapy can be the solution our animal rehabilitation center can provide, to easing some of the pain due to chronic conditions and injuries in your pet and can help them get moving again. The water will help them rebuild muscle tone safely and pain-free. We offer many types of hydrotherapy including our water treadmill and swim tank that will improve mobility, reduce pain, and increase activity.
Our underwater treadmill in our Tampa facility offers buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure that will support the joints. The fluid resistance that is provided by the water supports tone and helps rebuild muscle.
Making use of the swim tank at our animal rehabilitation center will give your pet a safe, temperature-controlled pool where they can swim as much as they want. The swim tank is great for older pets that seem to be slowing down. It allows them to exercise freely because the pressure on their joints is alleviated.
Dry Land Exercises
Beyond the pool, our trainers will help your pet feel like a puppy again with a wide variety of dry land exercises that will be both beneficial and fun. By making use of stairs, ramps, and rails that are great for assisting injured or post-operative dogs return to a full range of motion our animal rehabilitation center has just what your dog needs.
Weight Loss Programs
It is important to make sure that your pet is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When your dog weighs more than they should, just like humans, they are at risk for many other health problems including:
- Heart disease
- Arthritis in joints
- Increased risk of cancer, organ disease, and blood pressure
- Difficulty in hot environments that are the norm in Tampa Bay
- Overall shortened lifespan
Our experts can design a plan that will specifically target your dog’s needs in order to reach their ideal weight. Our animal rehabilitation center will provide them with the right diet, physical conditioning, and dietary supplements to get them there.
If your dog’s pace has slowed, coordination is off, or activity levels have decreased, they may be in pain. Pain in dogs can be due to a number of issues. Some they may have been born with while others may be due to the aging process or weight gain. Treatment is necessary because avoiding the problem can lead to more serious issues down the road. Making use of our chiropractic therapy in Tampa can help with:
- Muscle atrophy
- Floating knee caps
- Hip dysplasia
- Urinary incontinence
- Muscle spasms
- Post-surgical pain
Our animal rehabilitation center provides chiropractic therapies including therapeutic massage, hydrotherapy, regenerative stem-cell therapy, spinal surgery rehab, and weight loss programs.
