Physical Rehabilitation & Integrative Medicine

Physical Rehabilitation & Integrative Medicine

Our Physical Rehabilitation/Integrative Medicine Service’s main objectives are:

  1. To rehabilitate dogs and cats that have arthritis, sustained musculoskeletal injuries, have undergone surgery (fracture repair, cranial cruciate ligament rupture repair, patellar luxation stabilization, joint replacement, arthroscopy, neck/back surgery), or any condition where targeted therapies can help to alleviate pain/weakness and regain mobility.
  2. To provide complementary and alternative medicine including acupuncture, TCVM/herbal medicine, cold laser therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and joint injections [steroid/hyaluronic acid, platelet rich plasma (PRP)].
  3. To provide support for owners with overweight pets that do not have the opportunity to or are unable to get enough exercise due to pre-existing medical conditions.
  4. To provide working dogs with an opportunity to improve their physical condition by increasing stamina and strength while minimizing injuries.
  5. To educate owners on arthritic management and provide a structured physical activity program with complementary and alternative therapies for geriatric patients to maximize comfort, mobility, and overall quality of life.

We strive to work with both owners and pets to help maximize our patients’ quality of life. Your pet will receive a thorough orthopedic/neurologic baseline exam and from there, Dr. Yang will tailor an individualized plan specific to your pet’s condition/needs.

  • Cold Laser Therapy (photobiomodulation)
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound
  • Underwater Treadmill (UWTM)
  • Targeted Active Exercises
  • Manual Therapies (massage, stretch)

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Karen and “Bella”

Dr Yang has been so wonderful with me and Bella! We were both so anxious over Bella’s TPLO recovery. She’s so patient and kind and takes the time to explain the recovery process in great detail.

Steve & Mary Ann and “Rocco”

We were first referred to Jupiter Pet when our regular vet diagnosed our little French Bulldog Rocco with a failing gallbladder. He had to be cleared by a cardiologist due to his age and a heart murmur. Once cleared the cardiologist said he needed the surgery ASAP. Thankfully Dr. Latimer was able to take him right away. He saved our little boy and was a pleasure throughout as was the whole staff. A year or so later Rocco started having some mobility problems so we brought him back in to be looked at. After diagnosis we were handed off to Dr. Yang and she took care of our Rocco and helped him to have mobility into his senior years. Sadly the day came where we found ourselves in the ER on a Sunday having to make the decision none of us want to make. Dr. Katz’s kindness and understanding helped us to accept the inevitable. We were losing our little boy. As we held our Rocco for the last time who walks in? Dr. Yang. She came in on her own time to grieve with us. I can’t begin to explain how much that meant to my wife and I. Dr. Yang now takes care of our Leeloo helping to keep her as mobile as possible during her senior years. Thank you Dr. Latimer, Dr. Yang, Dr. Katz and to everyone at Jupiter Pet for all you have done for our family. We are forever grateful.
