NMAH In-House Physical Rehabilitation
Physical rehabilitation is an effective way to help pets heal from various conditions, injuries and surgeries. It also decreases the risk of further injury. It can be used to decrease pain, improve quality of life and reduce the need for medications.

No your pet does not need to be a patient at NMAH. If your pet is not our patient we will need to communicate with your current veterinarian, have complete records sent over and proof of current vaccines.
Treatments can range from several weeks to months depending on the case. We can also include the owner in a session and teach them what to do at home if that is a better option.
