Home Exercise Program


The owner plays a crucial role in the success of the overall canine rehabilitation program. Dr Weiss will provide stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, and advice as to any limitations to take place in the home. This is part of the whole team effort necessary to promote your pet’s recovery and progress. Rehabilitation is not successful without follow through work at home. Dr Weiss will provide information on how to perform stretches, massage, and/or exercises at home based on your ability and the pet’s needs. This could be given by verbal explanation, forms, written instruction, or video clips. You are encouraged to bring a notepad and possible video capability to the appointment for better understanding.
