Mumbai, August 7, 2019: Pet Physio Pro™, a first-of-its-kind wellness clinic and animal gym in the country, which is solely dedicated to physical fitness and rehabilitation of pets, was launched recently in Mumbai. Founded by Dr. Pranjal Nadkarni, the new state-of-the-art pet clinic offers therapies based on alternative medicine and fitness techniques – all under a single roof.
Pet Physio Pro™ offers solutions for neurologic and orthopaedic disorders, cancer pain management, wound management, internal wellbeing, metabolic/behavioural disorders, pre and post-surgery/injury recovery, obesity care/conditioning, feline, avian and exotics care and hospice care. Disorders such as arthritis, joint and muscle pains, genetic deformities, hip or spinal fractures, etc. can be identified and treated based on several therapies.
Based on a complete assessment (physical, orthopaedic, neurologic examination and gait analysis), appropriate therapies and treatments are planned. This would be a combination of medical acupuncture, hydrotherapy, Low Light Therapy, medical massage, TENS Therapy (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), NMES Therapy (Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation) and therapeutic exercises as required. The dedicated space for an animal gym with tailor-made exercise regimes and equipment offers fitness solutions for pets of all ages.
At the launch of the centre, Dr. Pranjal Nadkarni, founder of Pet Physio Pro™ said, “Having been a veterinary general practitioner since a few years now, I realized that there was a lack of awareness in our country about the presence and benefits of therapeutic services using alternative medicine to treat pets. Often times, pets seem to look normal externally but may actually be dealing with unnoticed chronic pain; so many times, they don’t get the additional help to improve their quality of life. The option of putting them down is often suggested – why opt for such a drastic resort when we can rehabilitate them to live a healthier, pain free and more normal life? I have seen the wonderful results that can be achieved through it and thus have founded Pet Physio Pro™.”
She further added, “At Pet Physio Pro™, we aim to carve and maintain a holistic health and welfare niche in the Indian veterinary field, at par with international standards, by facilitating a pain-free, active and fit life for pets through physical therapy and fitness programs, whilst ensuring your pets are comfortable and having fun. As our motto perfectly encapsulates it – happy pets equals happy us!”
Dr. Pranjal is a qualified Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. in Florida (USA) and is a Certified Veterinary Medical Acupuncturist (cVMA), specializing in Small and Exotic Animals, from CuraCore, Colorado (USA). She has completed her Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry from Mumbai Veterinary College.
