Therapeutic Exercise

 

At The Rehab Sanctuary, therapeutic exercise takes center stage as the foundation of pet rehabilitation and conditioning.  

From post-op recovery and injury rehabilitation programs to geriatric wellness programs and vestibular dysfunction recovery to weight loss and conditioning programs, our team will tailor a program to build your pet’s strength, enhance mobility, and restore normal biomechanical function. 

Idiopathic Vestibular Disease

 

Idiopathic vestibular disease is a condition affecting the vestibular system located in the inner ear. Symptoms can come on very suddenly and can be quite distressing for both pets and their owners.

Drawing inspiration from successful treatments used for humans with BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), our skilled team perform non-invasive positional maneuvors adapted for dogs suffering from geriatric peripheral vestibular disease. As with most conditions, early intervention provides the best chance for a successful outcome.

Chiropractic

 

Chiropractic care plays an integral role in our comprehensive approach to pet well-being. With a deep understanding of animal physiology, Dr Kylie provides gentle and effective adjustments to enhance the overall mobility of our patients.  

It is incredible how her touch can promote spinal alignment, alleviate pain and discomfort, reduce inflammation and promote healing bringing relief and joy to our dear pets.  

Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a time-honored therapy that stimulates specific points within the body to promote natural healing and restore balance. Dr Kylie integrates the ethereal wisdom of traditional Chinese acupuncture with the solid principles of Western medicine to provide a comprehensive approach to pet wellbeing.  

We mostly utilise acupuncture to help manage musculoskeletal injuries, osteoarthritis, spinal disease and chronic pain. However, increasingly we are finding ourselves leaning on it to help with medical conditions involving the gastrointestinal, urinary, reproductive, skin and immune systems.  

Laser Therapy

 

Laser Therapy offers a non-invasive and drug-free solution for a wide range of conditions including post operative recovery, musculoskeletal injuries, wound healing, inflammation. It also provides both instantaneous and long lived relief for both acute and chronic pain.  

Our advanced laser technology allows us to deliver targeted light energy to stimulate cellular activity, accelerate tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation.  

Home-Visits

 

For the most part, our patients love coming to visit us. But, for those pets with anxiety, sometimes even our most dedicated efforts at ‘breaking the ice’ are just not enough to help them find their happy place.   

We love seeing the difference in these patients when we are able to come to their home and offer our care in a familiar and stress-free environment.  

We also offer personalised home visits, for patients who are difficult to transport.  

Day Stays

 

The main way that we provide holistic care to our patients is through Day Stays at our beautiful, newly renovated facility in Brookfield.  

Here, we can provide multiple, optimally timed treatment modalities as well as a fun day out for your pet – whether they prefer playing in the yard or just relaxing and breathing in the sweet smell of horses.

It offers practicality and convenience so that, for those of you leading busy lives,  your pet doesn’t have to miss out while you attend to your other commitments. 

To keep you connected and involved, we offer the option of remote viewing log-ins, allowing you to virtually observe your pets sessions and stay connected with their progress, even when you’re not physically present.

Massage therapy and hydrotherapy services coming soon.
