Way of working

Personalized Rehabilitation Plan

The PATIENT, the OWNER and the CIRCUMSTANCES of the moment must be taken into account when carrying out the rehabilitation plan.

That’s why we perform:

  • Clinic history
  • Environment analysis
  • Diet assessment
  • Functional questionnaires
  • Posture evaluation
  • Evaluation of movement and gait pattern
  • Palpation diagnosis
  • Veterinary, neurological and orthopaedic physical exam.

thanks to these data we set the OBJECTIVES to comply with the collaboration of the owner.

Acording to the therapies chosen
in the rehabilitacion plan, the duration and frequency f the sessions can vary.


Our center is fully enabled so that all pets with mobility problems can move easily.
Discover our underwater treadmill hydrotherapy area, where animals can recover their muscles mass without joint impact.

The center has a large gym area to exercise different muscle groups and work the proprioception.
In addition, we have a quiet and noise-free space, where animals can receive physical and manual therapy treatments without distractions.

Referrer Service

If you are interested in being a referral center or wish to send us a case, contact us and we will provide you with all the information.

We want to be a reliable complement for all those hospitals, clinics and veterinary facilities that require a rehab service for their patients, without fear of losing the client, because we do not offer any other service outside our specialty. Thus, we also advise those veterinary rehabilitators who need a second opinion or need to refer a case to make a specific therapy.

How does the referral service work?


  • We receive from you the historyand all the testsperformed (x-rays, labs performed…)
  • We do a case study and get in touch with your center.
  • We met with the owner, and after the first functional assessment visit and already established the rehabilitation plan, you will receive a copy.Weekly, we will inform you of the evolution of the patient, always being available for any consultation.
