ASCS: Seattle’s Animal Rehabilitation Specialists

Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle is proud to have been the first specialty hospital in the region to recognize the importance of physical rehabilitation as an alternative to or following a surgical procedure.

Since 2009, we have offered rehabilitation services that have always been overseen by a veterinarian certified in canine rehabilitation. In 2017, the rehabilitation department outgrew the space in the ASCS building, and we began construction of our new rehabilitation center next door.

In January, 2018 we introduced our sister practice, SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, and opened the doors to SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation Center. This Center was designed to provide space for a large canine gym, two underwater treadmills, two exam/ treatment rooms and a dedicated reception area in a non-clinical environment.

Our pets were born to walk, run, climb, and play. But without the ability to move around comfortably – because of an injury or illness or after surgery – their quality of life suffers.

Fortunately, we can help.

As an animal physical rehabilitation specialty center, we provide comprehensive services to help restore your pet’s health and mobility.

Most initial rehabilitation consultations and therapy sessions will take place in this new facility, located immediately north of the Animal Surgical Clinic building at 14820 15th Ave NE. However, SOUND also continues to offer diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the ASCS building in the SOUND Sports Medicine Clinic. We will confirm the location of your pet’s appointment prior to your visit.

Physical rehabilitation after surgery

Postoperative physical rehabilitation can speed your pet’s recovery and lead to better surgical outcomes because it:

  • Helps pets recover full range of motion
  • Enhances and expedites healing
  • Reduces inflammation

Other ways that rehabilitation can help pets

Rehabilitation is more than postoperative care. It can also:

  • Reduce pain and increase mobility in pets with arthritis
  • Improve balance and coordination in pets with neurological conditions
  • Help working and sporting dogs reach and maintain optimal performance
  • Enhance weight loss and overall conditioning.

SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation Center offers Nutritional Counseling for weight loss and arthritis. Please call 206-773-2262 to schedule an appointment with one of our rehabilitation veterinarians to discuss a nutritional program
