Today, many veterinary hospitals offer rehabilitation as a service. We think that this is an interesting subject and therefore we want to find out what rehabilitation methods that are available in Sweden for dogs and horses. We want to give animal nurses and other persons who have animals as an occupation an survey that shortly describes how the methods are performed, what physical effect they have in the body and to give examples in what conditions they are used. To find out what rehabilitation methods that are available we sent out two different questionnaires, one to hospitals/clinics for small animals and one to hospitals/clinics for horses and other companies that works with rehabilitation of horses. The information about the methods described in our project we have found in literature and on the Internet. We have included methods like massage, water therapy, chiropractic, ultrasound, acupuncture and laser. Our work has been complicated because of difficulties to find scientific literature and because the definition of what methods included in rehabilitation is indistinct. It is also difficult to know what methods are used in Sweden. However, we have got a survey of many of the rehabilitation methods that are used, both the ones that we knew of before and methods that we found out about through the questionnaires. We hope that the research work of this subject develops in the future so the rehabilitation of animals becomes even more effective.
