Do I Need a Canine Hospital or the Vet?

Not everyone in Tampa Bay understands the difference between a canine hospital and a veterinary clinic. Both serve tail-wagging clientele, but several things set them apart. There is no question that you want the best possible care for Reggie and Rudy, and their circumstances will affect where you take them for treatment.

Common Features of a Canine Hospital

If something is wrong with Luna, wouldn’t you schedule an appointment at the vet? What will you do if she needs specialized care? Not all veterinary clinics are full service. What sets a canine hospital apart from other pet professionals are distinctive features, like:

Rehabilitation Programs and Equipment

If your furry friend is injured, we can help them recover and rebuild their strength. We have hydrotherapy appliances, like underwater treadmills and a swim tank. The water makes your dog weightless, and exercise is pain-free because there is no pressure on their joints. Our dry land exercises incorporate cavaletti rails, stairs, ramps, and more. With a range of rehabilitation equipment and individualized treatment plans, Otis is sure to be walking with ease and wagging his tail in Tampa Bay!

Geriatric Assistance

As your pooch ages, their medical needs will change. Our canine hospital provides a range of services to senior pets for conditions, like arthritis, neurological complications, hip dysplasia and more. We will help them maintain their strength and comfort level.

Post-Op Recovery

Whether Delia has a CCL rupture, a knee ligament tear, or a problem with her spine, we can help them recover after surgery. In fact, we have the state-of-the-art facilities to help her recover and regain her stability and vigor.

Some doctors offer advanced services, like regenerative stem cell therapies, massage, and orthotic and cart fittings. If Delia needs any of these, check to make sure the practitioner provides them. At Tampa Bay K9 Rehabilitation Center, we offer these and more!
