Physical therapy can be extremely beneficial for your pet to help extend their quality of life, mobility, and comfort.
From athletes to senior pets, veterinary physical therapy can help animals with a diverse range of conditions. We can help create and implement a physical therapy plan for your pet to help extend their quality of life, mobility, and comfort.
Pet owners generally select physical therapy as a treatment option after an injury or to manage chronic health conditions such as obesity or arthritis.
Although most people seek out physical therapy for their pet after an injury or to manage a chronic health condition, your pet doesn’t have to be suffering to seek the benefits of physical therapy. If you are looking to improve or restore mobility , manage pain , treat an injury or maximize physical potential, contact us to set up an exam.
Based on your pet’s condition, we will create a therapy plan for your pet. Some activities may include treadmill work, electrode stimulation, exercise programs, massage, hydrotherapy, orthodics or assistive devices.
As therapy sessions progress, we will keep careful records and make adjustments as necessary to ensure progress is being made. We can also prescribe pain medications if necessary. With advanced equipment and progressive methodology, we are committed to providing the best possible physical therapy for your pet. Every test, decision, and treatment is customized to the specific needs of your pet so that they can manage their condition or recovery and live out their happy, healthy life.
At Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates, we know that surgery can be hard on both you and your pets. Not only is the thought of surgery for your beloved pet emotionally taxing, but the pain and discomfort that comes from the healing process can present more challenges. We never want your pet to be in pain, and we know you don’t either. Our Purcellville veterinarians proudly offer physical conditioning therapy to help with your pet’s pre-surgical and post-surgical pain relief.

Physical conditioning therapy at Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates is conducted during one-on-one sessions with a licensed technician who is fully trained in pet physical therapy techniques. We offer this service as part of our commitment to ensuring your pet is as comfortable as possible while they get the medical care and attention they need.
We want your pet to receive the best possible care before and after his or her surgery. While there will always be some pain and discomfort associated with the healing process, physical conditioning can help keep your pet comfortable, and a comfortable pet will be less likely to upset incision sites, lick stitches, or run or move in a way that could hurt them further.
Not every veterinary office has skilled physical therapists on staff. Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates offers this service to help local pets and their families. We are dedicated to keeping your pet healthy and well for years to come.
