In Allen Park the newly-opened Water Gait Veterinary Rehabilitation is the newest of only a handful of pet rehabilitation centers in southeast Michigan. Water Gait, named after the water therapy used to treat many pet conditions and the movement or gait that veterinarians observe in assessing a pet’s condition, treats dogs, cats and even rabbits to alleviate pain and help pets regain mobility. The new state-of-the-art center features an underwater treadmill, therapy pool, exercise area and more.
Pet owners can tour the new facility, see equipment demonstrations and get a free pet weight evaluation and infra-red thermographic scan at an open house 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., February 28 through March 4. Appointments can be made beginning February 10. Water Gait Veterinary Rehabilitation is at 15220 Southfield Road in Allen Park, Michigan.
