Today Dr. Corey and his skilled staff heal animal patients from all over southern New England through innovative treatments based on established medical principles – all within a friendly and soothing environment.

Benefits of Veterinary Rehabilitation

Just like physical therapy for humans, veterinary rehabilitation can:

  • Reduce recovery time after injury and/or surgery
  • Decrease pain and inflammation
  • Increase range of motion to help with easier movement during daily activity
  • Lead to a longer and better quality of life for your pet
  • Aid in weight loss for overweight and elderly patients
  • Increase muscle tone and cardiovascular health

These are just some of the most common benefits that rehabilitation can bring to a pet. And for the devoted family, adding more years to their pet’s life – and more life in their years – is a benefit beyond measure.
