We're pleased to offer the following services at Pawsitive Strides Veterinary Rehabilitation & Therapy:


Our certified rehabilitation team thoroughly assesses each patient to provide an individualized treatment plan specific for your pet’s needs. We can assist in recovery from surgery or injury, loss of mobility, and weakness or pain. We work as a team with pet owners and referring veterinarians to improve each pet’s quality of life.

Sports Medicine

Is “go!” your dog’s favorite word? Do you spend the weekend bar-hopping at agility trials or outside in the field with your dog? Pawsitive Strides can help get your pet into peak physical condition with treatments focused on increasing strength and stamina for their individual sport and preventing injury.

Integrative or Holistic Medicine

Pawsitive Strides veterinarians have additional education and certification in integrative veterinary disciplines such as acupuncture and chiropractic. We offer alternative treatment options such as Acupuncture and Chiropractic for chronic conditions.

Weight Management

Is your pet “thick” around the middle? We can provide your pet with a safe and effective exercise plan year-round. Maintaining an ideal weight with diet and exercise will help your pet stay healthy and avoid injury.
