Rehabilitation at Cromwell ARC
Our pets’ mobility and quality of life can be affected by a huge range of different conditions, from degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, to injuries such as a ruptured cruciate ligament or fracture. The aim of rehabilitation is to reduce the pain caused by disease, injury or surgery, improve function and ultimately to help our pets enjoy life again.
At Cromwells we have our very own rehabilitation services – the Cromwell Animal Rehabilitation Centre (ARC for short). The Cromwell ARC offers tailored rehabilitation programmes for your pet to get them back on their feet.
Your pet will be treated in purpose built rehabilitation facilities by our team of experienced qualified animal physiotherapists, who offer the most up to date treatments including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and class IV laser therapy. We are also able to offer acupuncture with one of our specially trained veterinary surgeons.
Our team of animal physiotherapists work in accordance with Veterinary Surgeons Act, which means treatment is only undertaken following referral from your vet. If you feel your pet may benefit from being assessed and treated by the team at The Cromwell ARC, please speak to your vet.
When your pet is referred to Cromwell ARC by your vet, they will be booked in for an hour-long assessment with the animal physiotherapy team, who will then create a rehabilitation programme specifically for them.
