Just as our name suggests, we carry out our treatments with the end goal of getting our patients to a place where they can move freely without lameness or pain. Veterinary rehabilitation focuses on soft tissue injuries and abnormalities rather than just the bones and joints. Our driving goal is to restore, maintain and promote optimal function, as well as improve quality of life by decreasing pain and increasing the function and mobility of joints and muscles. To achieve these goals, a variety of equipment is used such as physio balls, therapy bands, wobble boards, cavaletti poles, treadmills, and more. We also use acupuncture, electrical stimulation, shockwave therapy, hydrotherapy, laser therapy and other tools on a case-by-case basis.
Once you’ve filled out the consultation request form, a member of our team will get back to you within 72 hours to schedule your appointment. Please note that the wait times for starting rehabilitation vary depending on the modality recommended during your initial consultation. However, we do have a last-minute cancellation list and we will provide other options for you and your pet.Request An Appointment
We always encourage fellow veterinarians and pet owners to stay informed and educated about their pet’s condition. Since arthritis is one of the most common conditions that we manage, we highly recommended exploring Canine Arthritis Resources and Education as an insightful resource.
Where are you located?
We operate out of two buildings: Animal Surgical & Orthopedic Center (14810 14th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA, 98155) and SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation Center (14820 15th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA, 98155). All consultations are at the Animal Surgical building.
What conditions do you treat?
We primarily focus on arthritis and mobility, post-operative rehabilitation, non-surgical orthopedic management, neurological conditions, sports medicine, and weight loss.
What modalities do you offer?
After our rehabilitation veterinarians establish a whole-body diagnosis for your pet, they will put together a customized treatment plan. This may include:
How soon after surgery can my dog start rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation can start immediately after surgery with techniques such as icing, passive range of motion, and massage. You will receive basic instructions on these techniques from your surgical nurse at the time of discharge. An exam with one of the SOUND rehabilitation veterinarians is required in order to enroll in our in-clinic rehabilitation program. We encourage scheduling your initial consultation when you have secured a surgery date.
What diagnostics do you offer?
We can perform diagnostic imaging (x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan) in the Animal Surgical and Orthopedic Center building. Ultrasounds are performed by a board-certified radiologist and will always be scheduled on a different day than the initial appointment.
