Did you know that exercise on a treadmill has many health benefits? Sure you did…for people..but for PETS too!!

UVH rehabilitation program is equipped with a land treadmill. By use of the land treadmill we can improve joint and bone function, help maintain a healthy weight, improve cardiovascular function and help with neurological conditions.

The treadmill is easier on the joints and provides a full body work out. The pets can maintain a controlled and constant speed without distractions that allows them to get more out their workout. Use of the land treadmill helps with improving gaits in patients with neurological and orthopedic disease, as well weight loss management, and endurance training.

Do you think your pet could benefit from some treadmill excercise?
