Your primary care veterinarian may refer your pet to us or you can call us directly to schedule a consultation.
After arriving at the hospital, a rehabilitation technician will guide you and your pet to our rehab room where the consultation will take place. We will discuss changes that you have seen and develop your personal goals for your pet. Our rehabilitation doctor will perform a full physical, orthopedic, and neurologic exam as well as gait analysis. Recent radiographs and blood work will also be reviewed. The doctor will then discuss the best treatment plan for your pet considering their current health condition and the developed goals.
There is no typical rehab patient! The Rehabilitation team at NIVES is devoted to evaluating each patient individually and developing a customized plan that is best for the patient and their family.
