OUR PURPOSE

WHY A PET REHABILITATION CENTRE

REHABVET exists to bring in alternative support therapies for animals here in Singapore. We are the first pet centre that is a full fledged animal rehabilitation centre with practitioners trained by University of Tennessee.

In 2016, we had a first hand encounter on how Singapore pet owners with senior pets needing more help for their dogs suffering from Osteoarthritis, IVDD and other medical conditions related to aging.

The only options available in Singapore were Veterinarian medical care that consist mainly of surgeries, NSAID and pain management drugs. We had a husky that needed more than that.

After visiting Youtube and learning from the experience of Veterinarians majoring in canine rehabilitation, our husky started walking. We knew immediately that Singapore is lacked of rehabilitation and physiotherapy care for our pets.

We immediately assembled a team of experienced veterinarian nurses and send them over to University of Tennessee to be trained as CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners) and invited the top Canine Hydrotherapy trainers to Singapore to train the remaining team.

Embracing the world’s best and top complementary medical devices and our trainned therapist, we started Singapore first and only full canine rehabilitation centre.
