Therapeutic floor exercises are one of the cornerstones to veterinary physical rehabilitation. They include a broad range of activities using many tools such as cavaletti poles, balance discs and peanuts. These exercises will help improve your pet’s pain-free range of motion and limb use, strengthen your pet’s muscles, and overall increase its quality of life. Under the direction and supervision of a rehab-certified veterinary technician, these exercises will aid your pet in recovering from an injury or surgery faster and may help prevent further injury. Not only will your pet make improvements physically, but therapeutic floor exercises can have a positive psychological effect for the pets as well. Because the intensity and the difficulty of the floor exercises will vary depending on the patient’s needs, they are beneficial for athletes as well. Much like a person going to the gym, sporting and agility dogs will find that the therapeutic floor exercises will enhance their performance and endurance.
