Improving Mobility & Reducing Pain

Our team at Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital can develop individualized exercise programs to meet pets' specific needs and help them regain pain-free mobility as part of an overall treatment plan. 

Passive Range of Motion (PROM) and stretching activities help promote and maintain flexibility in tendons, ligaments, and muscles. 

The Process

Therapeutic exercises improve the movement of synovial fluid and reduce enzymes that break down cartilage, thus helping to promote healthier joints in dogs and cats. 

At Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital, we use a variety of therapeutic exercises to reintroduce healthy movement including balance boards, treadmills, circling, physioball exercises, surface variation, stair climbing, and changing hills/inclines. 

Our vets will work with your pet to increase their mobility and reduce pain associated with inflamed joints and degeneration. 

Goals & Benefits of Therapeutic Exercises:
