We Have Answers
My dog does not like water. Is hydrotherapy still an option?
We see many dogs who are not naturally drawn to water do remarkably well in the underwater treadmill. Our handling and training methods provide the needed encouragement and support for patients who are hesitant to participate. Rarely, do we get a patient that we can’t do hydrotherapy with. We have even had a cat successfully navigate hydrotherapy sessions.
Can I drop my dog off for the day?
Our facility is not set up to board and monitor pets for the day so we ask that you wait at our facility while your pet is being seen.
How long do appointments last?
Generally speaking, most follow- up physical rehabilitation appointments last 30 minutes.
New patient evaluations last 60-90 minutes.
Acupuncture appointments last 40-45 minutes
How much does physical rehabilitation cost?
We will provide you with a detailed estimate at the time of your pet’s initial evaluation. The cost of our initial evaluation and treatment is $200.00.
Follow-up rehabilitation sessions are based on an hourly rate, rather than a by-the-service rate. This allows us to provide the individualized care your dog needs for their specific condition.
We also offer packaged pricing discounts.
* Follow up sessions do not include acupuncture or shockwave treatments.
Do pet insurance companies reimburse for physical rehabilitation?
Many pet insurance companies provide benefits for veterinary provided physical rehabilitation. Please contact your pet insurance carrier to find out the specific details of your pet’s plan.
My dog is uncomfortable around new people and places. How will you help build a trusting relationship?
We utilize fear free and force free handling techniques and will always do our best to be sure your dog is as comfortable as possible. We implement positive reinforcement training techniques using food as our main source of reinforcement which often results in dogs who decide Stride is a fun place to be. (We agree.)
