Our Service

The Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation (VSMR) Service offers physical therapy for hospitalized animals, supporting the many Clinical Services of the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. Utlizing our state of the art facility and through our tailored patient programs, our goal is to enhance recovery from an injury or illness, and improve the general health of every patient. Our Service also provides care on an outpatient basis for established patients or for those who have been referred by their primary care veterinarian. Therapy may also be helpful to improve performance of dogs that work, compete in sports, or just want to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Please contact us at (979) 845-2351 to schedule your pet's appointment or to talk to one of our staff.

Our Team

Our team includes board-certified veterinary surgeons, highly trained veterinary technicians, and dedicated fourth year veterinary students who work closely with you and your companion through the recovery process. We are dedicated to the total care of your pet.
