Many times we wonder why our pet has not done well after an operation if it has been done to heal, or we ask our veterinarians what has happened; What happens is that our pets like us need some care after their body has gone through some physical trauma. Many times they only need rest, which implies that they do not run, jump, climb the stairs, among others; And many other times need rehabilitation exercises or therapies to improve.
Many pets are born with diseases in the bones or muscles or with age are emerging these diseases. Rehabilitation therapies will play an important part in the lives of our pets so that they do not deteriorate more their illness, helping them to lead a better quality of life.
We recommend talking to your veterinarian before beginning any rehabilitation therapy. These therapies are a complement to the veterinary work that your pet receives and that will help you to get ahead. PetChalet will be happy to work with your veterinarian if they wish.
There will be a specific program for the need of each pet in which all or some therapies will be integrated depending on what your pet needs.
Remember … even if our pets do not talk, they do feel.
Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment that has been used in physiotherapy clinics for over 50 years. It provides warmth to injured body parts that are deep inside your body that are not capable of being heated only by a hot compress. Ultrasound is also believed to enhance cellular function by making microscopic gas bubbles near its lesion by expanding and contracting rapidly. It is believed that this expansion and contraction accelerates the healing process in the injured body part.
Ultrasound can produce many effects other than just the potential warming effect. It has been shown to cause increased tissue relaxation, local blood flow and scar tissue decomposition. The effect of increased local blood flow can be used to help reduce chronic inflammation and local inflammation and, according to some studies, promote healing of bone fractures.
When starting an ultrasound treatment it is always recommended to do 5 days of sessions followed and then 2 days of rest, depending on the progress that is seen in the patient is if you continue with the same number of sessions or decreases the amount.

Whether you are asking your dog to get off the couch, to walk, to compete in an agility event or to run for the ball, your dog will always need the strength to perform the activities with the lowest risk of injury .
Many dogs lack strength in the nucleus of the muscle group: the lower back and abdomen. In high-performance dogs, problems are seen in the lower and middle back and in the iliopsoas (anterior muscles of the hip). In low-performing dogs, the first place where weakness is seen when the dog ages is in the lower back and the back.

Electrotherapy is a physiotherapeutic treatment where electrical stimulation is applied to nerves and muscles through electrodes on the skin. For effective treatment in dogs, the hair has to be shaved or very short.
There are different types of electrotherapy. TENS (Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation) is the most well-known form. It is a very effective treatment against pain. The electrodes are applied to the skin in the pain region. Attenuating pulses are sent through the electrodes in the skin and along the nerves. The pulses suppress pain signals that pass to the brain.
Another type of electrotherapy is EMS (Muscle Stimulation) that provides passive exercise, sending electrical pulses to muscles or muscle groups to contract and relax them. This form of electrotherapy is very useful in preventing or curbing muscular atrophy (loss of muscle fibers) by damage to the central or peripheral nervous system.

Most dogs by nature, have the strength and energy to walk distances up to 25 kilometers a day. For this same reason we must understand what happens when a dog can not perform at least 30 minutes of walking a day; Are frustrated and very often show destructive and unwanted behaviors, such as barking, chewing, escaping and digging.
Dogs crave the sights, sounds and stimulating scents that only the exteriors can offer, with the sky above and the earth below. Just grab your dog’s leash and see how excited he is! And once outside you realize how your dog is transformed from a sack of potatoes lying on a sofa, to a dog alert and full of energy. The wide variety of stimuli your dog can find on the outside will help him maintain mental alertness, while exercise will help him maintain his physical strength.
