Is your pet having difficulty moving, recovering from surgery, in pain, or just not fit enough to enjoy life?
PET FIT can help!
Our vision is to have a caring, professional, and long term relationship with our patients and our referral sources.
We are thankful for those we serve as clients and recognize this daily in all our interactions. Our clients are the purpose and foundation of our dream. We will provide a welcoming atmosphere for those who choose us to lead them in their pet’s care.
We will use our combined clinical experience and collaboration with other professionals to advance our skills for the benefit of our patients. We will continue to explore and expand programs which will be of mutual benefit to the animals we serve and to the practice.
We are dedicated to client education and providing our clients with enough information to make appropriate decisions for their animal companions.
Our goal is to alleviate pain and restore our patients to maximal function, improving their quality of life.
We offer a wide range of rehabilitation, fitness and pain management services to treat dogs and cats, ranging from the canine athlete to the senior citizen.
Initial Physical and Functional Evaluation
- We measure the flexion and extension angles of the joints with abnormal motion
- We evaluate which muscles have decreased size and we take measurements
- We look at the gait and how your pet is moving and his or her limitations
- We do a neurologic evaluation to see if there are any deficiencies
- We try to detect any painful areas and talk about pain management
- We discuss your pet’s nutrition and the need of supplements
- We do video documentation of your pet’s movement and limitations
After the Initial Evaluation we will discuss the frequency of the treatments to achieve optimal results for you and your pet.
Scheduling a consultation is easy, simply give us a call at 901-405-8053 or 901-440-5385. Our staff is trained to help you with any questions or concerns you might have.
You will need:
- Current radiographs (if your family veterinarian has taken them). If your radiographs are film, bring them along or request your veterinarian to send them to us. If they are digital, you can bring a copy on a CD or have your veterinarian email them directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Copy of bloodwork performed by your veterinarian.
- List of patient’s current medications and allergies.
- Knowledge of patient’s medical history. Your veterinarian can fax any pertinent records to 1-844-273-2950.
Our certified rehabilitation therapist will evaluate your animal’s movements, spinal and joint function, strength, coordination, and other physical abilities. This will determine the impact of an injury or disability.
Based on the Evaluation, we will move forward to his treatment or plan.
Diagnosis and Plan
After the Initial Evaluation, a customized treatment plan is developed to address the particular challenges of the patient.
We will determine the best way to restore functional movement and reduce pain or disability based on your pet’s condition, environmental factors and lifestyle.
The plan will be individualized, including both the pet’s and owner’s needs.
Moving forward with Treatment Plan
The treatments are performed as an outpatient day-care basis. The treatment will consist of Exercises and Modalities used to improve strength and decrease pain. Progress is monitored closely, and we continuously adapt the treatment plan depending on how your pet is responding to the treatment. We make every effort to adjust the plan to your pet’s personality and lifestyle to make rehabilitation a positive journey.
As your pet makes progress towards graduation, we prepare you for at-home maintenance. Whether your pet is older and we want to retain the strength and mobility we’ve gained, or if your pet has had surgery and we want to prevent future injuries, we give you the tools to support your pet’s optimal health for the rest of his or her life.
Graduation does not mean goodbye, we will remain here for you as long as your pet needs us.
