Who Benefits from Rehabilitation?


Lisa and Marco in canine rehabilitation, Marco was rescued through Little Paws Big Hearts Rescue, with a spinal injury. He is working with our physical therapy specialists, and is gaining strength and balance. Veterinary and Rehabilitation Center of Cape Elizabeth is an AAHA accredited facility fully staffed with CCRPs trained in Canine sports medicine, physical therapy, wheelchair fittings, bracing and more.


Pets benefit from rehabilitation much as humans benefit from physical therapy.  Rehabilitation helps pets recover from injury or surgery, regain and maintain mobility and decrease pain. It is also helpful to keep pets mentally focused, lose weight and to stay in shape over the long, cold winter! This type of physical therapy is never painful and dogs who get rehab here always have fun! 


With rehab, pets can maintain strength as they age and prevent injury during times of inactivity. Some common conditions we work with include:

  • Intervertebral Disk Disease
  • Lack of physical fitness due to weight or age
  • Obesity
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Bicipital Tendon Synovitis
  • Iliopsoas Injuries
  • Pre and Post surgical recovery
