At Northborough Canine Rehabilitation and Fitness Center our goal is to improve the quality of life and the overall health of your canine companion. We offer customized treatment plans that safely rebuild strength while accelerating the recovery process.


Canine rehabilitation adapts human physical therapy techniques to increase function and mobility of joints and muscles in dogs. It can reduce chronic pain and enhance recovery from injury, surgery, degenerative diseases and obesity.

What Makes Us Unique

We do a full assessment of each individual patient at every rehab visit. Our specialty focuses on treating soft tissue injuries using manual therapy techniques. Nobody else offers these services.

Our 2,300 square-foot rehab center comfortably houses a semi in-ground heated swimming pool that allows your dog to swim at your waist level. And our FitPAWS gym includes customized exercise equipment that is proven to be more effective at managing recovery.


Your First Visit

Communication and preparation are some of the most important factors when it comes to effective therapy.


  • Please bring your dog's medical records
  • Be familiar with your dog's diet and exercise routine
  • Set aside extra time for therapy and rehab exercises
  • Don't forget to bring a towel (or two)
