Giving Pets A Second Chance with Rehabilitation

Someone you know may be experiencing the debilitating effects of arthritis or obesity, or may be recovering from a serious injury. To regain their mobility and a sense of normalcy, they undergo rehabilitation. Like us, our pets can also suffer from arthritis, obesity, and injuries of the tendons, bones and joints. At Countryside Veterinary Center, we believe that pets are just as deserving as we are of having a second chance at an active, comfortable life. The goal of our pet rehabilitation services is to reduce your pet’s pain, improve their mobility, and keep them happy and healthy for as many years as possible.

Finding the Best Treatment for Your Pet’s Condition

Your veterinarian will want to examine your pet and diagnose their problem before suggesting treatment. Once they have evaluated your pet’s overall health and isolated the issue(s), they can discuss all available treatment options with you. We are not only concerned with improving your pet’s condition, but also making sure they’re comfortable during their procedure, and that you’re satisfied with our services.

If you have any questions about our rehabilitation services or would like us to examine your pet and recommend a treatment, we invite you to call at (708) 469-6050 or bring your pet in to see us.
