There comes a time in every pet owner's life when he or she must evaluate a beloved pet's quality of life. Whether our pets are feeling the effects of old age or illness, it can be heart-wrenching to watch our companions decline in health. Veterinary rehabilitation therapy, in many cases, can improve the quality of life for pets, including those with progressive diseases, allowing them to live more comfortable and functional lives.
Quality of life care focuses on providing patients with relief from pain. The goal is to keep them moving and functional for as long as possible, which helps to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Physical medicine can help to maintain mobility even in severe cases.
