MAN'S best friend can need physio and rehab too and Orange Vet Hospital has launched a rehabilitation clinic to cover the need.
The launch was held on Friday, with the equipment and laser therapy capability set to help pets requiring post-operative care and muscular-skeletal assessments.
Dr Genevieve Liebich is the only certified canine rehabilitation therapist in the region and is also a human physiotherapist.

"So many of our clients require ongoing rehabilitation and recovery continuing therapy," she said.

MAKEOVER OVER FOR JACK'S FRIENDLY GROCER
AFTER taking over Jacks Corner Store nine months ago, the Moulder Street shop now has a new name and a fresh lease on life.
Co-owner Mani Singh said renovations to repaint the store and replace shelving were complete and it had been renamed Jack's Friendly Grocer.
The grand opening will take place on Thursday, with a free sausage sizzle to be held from 10am-4pm to mark the occasion.

"It's totally changed now," Mr Singh said.
"We've opted for a supermarket style. It's not a corner store anymore, it's competitively priced to the supermarkets and we have promotions every week like the supermarkets do."
The store has a 70-year history.
TASTE OF SYDNEY AT THE TOUCH OF A MOUSE
AN Orange-based interior designer has made another step towards establishing a bricks-and-mortar showroom by starting with a virtual one.
Christine Ghrayche from One X One Interiors launched an online showroom late last month, building a collection of 86 architectural and designer items seen rarely west of the Blue Mountains.
"It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and building it took about four to five weeks," she said.
The items range from wallpapers and 21 varieties of bespoke tiles through to cushions and other homewares.
"A lot of the tiles, for example, are handmade and the terracotta tiles are handmade in Morocco," Ms Ghrayche said.
"They're things that might not be available in local showrooms and you can only really find in the city."
Ms Ghrayche said she also kept samples if renovators wanted to touch and feel before deciding to purchase.
