This is the use of noninvasive techniques other than veterinary chiropractic for the rehabilitation of injuries. These techniques include stretching; massage; stimulation by use of low-level lasers, electrical sources, magnetic fields, and ultrasound; rehabilitative exercises; hydrotherapy; and applications of heat and cold. Veterinary physical therapy should be performed by a licensed veterinarian or, if allowed by state law, a licensed, certified, or registered veterinary or animal health technician educated in veterinary physical therapy or a licensed physical therapist educated in animal anatomy and physiology.
