What is Canine Rehabilitation?
At Cozier Canine Rehabilitation, we adapt human physical therapy techniques to your canine companion. These therapies help increase function and mobility of joints and muscles. It also helps to reduce pain and enhance recovery from injury, surgery, age-related diseases, degenerative diseases and obesity.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life for your dog and therefore your entire household. A Veterinary referral is required before our services can be provided.
