Ultrasound Therapy by Woof Pet Resort

THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND

Sound waves are used to provide deep heating and energy into the body to help the soft tissue muscle to expand and contract. It helps improve restrictive range of motion, pain and muscle spasm, and aids wound healing. It increases cellular activity by increasing circulation in damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments and increase connective tissue mobility. Ultrasound with stretching exercises can help elongate muscles, and reduce scar tissue restriction.

Massage Therapy by Woof Pet Resort

Massage

Massage is a medication free and non-invasive procedure that helps dogs to increase range of motion, reset proprioception, strengthen and re-stabilize joints while not adding stress to weight bearing joints and limbs.

During recovery (injury/ surgery), it allows your dog to relax and loosen tight muscles, resulting in increased circulation and blood flow, giving pain relief, allowing the body to repair the damage done, and speed up recovery. Once your dog is relaxed, the muscles become soft and less tense to allow healing to occur.

$50.00* per ½ hour session

Laser Therapy by Woof Pet Resort

LASER THERAPY (Photo-bio-stimulation)

Laser therapy is a non-invasive therapy that can be used in combination with other treatments; pharmacological or non-pharmacological that has no reported side effects when used properly. Therapeutic laser therapy uses light energy which is cold, or low level to work its magic. Light used at specific frequencies causes physiological changes in cells and bioprocesses to accelerate wound and joint healing, and to promote muscle regeneration. In addition, it helps to reduce the formation of scar tissue, improves nerve function and in some cases nerve regeneration. It can also help those pets in pain that have heart, kidney or liver disease that prohibits the use of traditional therapies such as prescription medications.

Water Therapy by Woof Pet Resort

Pool Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Therapy)

Swimming is a low impact, high resistance therapy that is good for body conditioning and weight loss in dogs. When used in injury rehabilitation, it allows a workout without the stress and impact to weight bearing joints and limbs. The weight bearing forces are decreased, because the dog is weightless due to hydrostatic pressure of the water, providing more stability to the joints for a more productive work out. Swimming can efficiently improve strength, muscular endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, range of motion, agility, psychological well-being with minimizing pain.

It is an excellent form of exercise for weight loss and older pets. It helps keep the older pet active preventing weight bearing injuries, and relieving arthritis.

Recreational swim: $1.25*/min.
Pool must be skimmed after session or additional charges will be applied.

Recreational swim with staff member: $1.50*/min., 10 min. minimum

Therapeutic swim: $2*/ min

Contrast Hydrotherapy: $25* per treatment

PULSED ELECTRO-MAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY by Woof Pet Resort

PULSED ELECTRO-MAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY (PEMF)

PEMF Therapy is a safe non-invasive way that improves quality of life for older dogs, dogs with chronic pain and inflammation, and even improves the life of young healthy dogs to help maintain wellness. PEMF therapy sends electro-magnetic pulses through the fur, deep into the cells of the body. It doesn’t hurt and dogs LOVE it!! The pulses are soothing for dogs and they are naturally drawn to the mats and the coils. It has been approved in Canada to be used for treatment of anxiety and depression in humans, and it works the same on dogs too.
It is commonly used in dogs to treat pain, arthritis, swelling and inflammation, stiffness, bone injuries and wounds. It relieves pain and discomfort in older dogs, and has been shown to provide lasting, rather than temporary relief of arthritis symptoms. It has been used as an alternative to medicating or reducing frequency of medicating. In healthy dogs, the electro-magnetic pulse and frequencies promotes cellular regeneration and improves cell function. It increases circulation, increases cell metabolism, energy production and increases endurance.

Initial Session: $30*/10 minutes (acclimitize)
Consecutive Sessions: $55*/20 minute session

* HST EXTRA

  • First time there for a grooming, will be returning again next time for sure. Employees were awesome, very nice people and took very good care of my pup. Definitely did not rush to get her out of the door, she required a lot of attention since she was well over due for an appointment. Ariann did an amazing job cutting my puppies hair she looks very cute, also spent the time to give me advice on how to maintain it at home. Highly recommend!
