Physical Therapy

BJ for web compressed

The information provided in the physical therapy instructions are not standardized for all surgeons who perform these operations, and instructions are not intended to replace any information previously provided by another Veterinarian following any of the listed procedures.  There are variations in the desired care for patients after surgery depending on other factors and I reserve the right to adjust each patient’s instructions based on their individual needs and goals during recovery.
