What we do
The staff at Salem Oregon Animal Rehabilitation is vested in the health and well being of your pet! We are here to reduce pain, increase function and get your pet back to normal as quickly as possible. We also assist in weight management programs and fitness for working and sporting dogs. This can include various exercises you can use in your own home at your leisure.
We will keep you and your veterinarian informed every step of the way and include you in the rehabilitation process.
We strive to help your clients and patients with their physical fitness and lifetime mobility so they keep coming back to you again and again. We want to be an adjunctive therapy to the lifetime care you provide your patients.

What is Animal Rehabilitation?
The goal of veterinary rehabilitation is to decrease pain, increase mobility, and restore your pet to their prior activity level. Benefits range from helping an older arthritic patient achieve a higher level of comfort and activity, to preventing injury from occurring in the first place with conditioning, exercise, and nutrition programs.
Animal rehabilitation is similar in many ways to human physical therapy. “Why don’t you call it that?” you ask. Well, physical therapy and physical therapist are actually copyrighted terms by the human physical therapy group. In veterinary medicine we call it physical rehabilitation and rehabilitation technicians, assistants and practitioners. Animal physical rehabilitation strives to provide the same and even more modalities than human physical therapy. We provide post-surgery, geriatric mobility services, pain management, trauma recovery, and weight loss. As well, we provide physical fitness for all our sporting patients.
