|Physical Rehabilitation Isn’t Just for People: OSU Veterinary Center Offers Pet Rehab|
(October 20, 2011 Stillwater, OK) – Rehabilitation isn’t just for people anymore; pets can benefit from rehabilitation services, too. The Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences is excited to announce that the veterinary hospital now offers rehabilitation for animals. Laura Moorer, a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner, is now on staff at the center’s veterinary hospital.
“Rehabilitation helps patients heal more quickly from injury or surgery,” explains Moorer. “It is also an excellent way to manage your pet’s weight or to build fitness for athletic dogs.”
Dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip or elbow dysplasia, orthopedic surgery, neurologic conditions, obesity or sport related injury can all benefit from rehabilitation.
Services offered at OSU’s veterinary hospital include an aquatic treadmill, a dry treadmill, low-level laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and more.
“We offer therapeutic exercises for stretching and strengthening. We can also design home exercise plans for clients who prefer at-home rehabilitation for their pets,” adds Moorer.
Moorer earned her BS degree in Animal Science from Texas A&M University and her Master’s degree in Public Health from A&M Health Science Center. She has been practicing veterinary rehabilitation since 2006 and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner in 2009.
