We currently offer cold laser therapy to speed up the recovery process for many of our patients. Laser therapy is commonly used for rehabilitation in the following situations:

  • Wound healing
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Pain reduction
  • Inflammation reduction

Dr. Wheeler completed her CCRT (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist) certification courses through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute in 2016. She works closely with Dr. Jill Kuhl, DPT, CCRT, offering comprehensive physical rehabilitation services to our patients.

We anticipate being able to offer expanded services in our new Wellness and Recovery Center, including:

  • Physical therapy assessments
  • Manual therapy
  • Neurological rehabilitation
  • Therapeutic exercises

The Whole Pet Vet is looking forward to offering a truly comprehensive rehabilitation program for patients who require more specialized therapies. Examples include:

  • Orthopedic/musculoskeletal injuries
  • Ligament/tendon injuries
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Chronic arthritis
  • Neurological conditions
  • Post-operative therapy and maintenance programs (especially for canine athletes)
