Welcome to Animal Rehab Center of Michigan, Inc.

The Animal Rehabilitation Center of Michigan (ARC) was founded in 2001 with a vision to help dogs live a full, pain-free life. We are proud to say that in the field of canine rehabilitation, we are Michigan’s:

  • FIRST canine rehabilitation facility
  • FIRST facility to have an underwater treadmill and Annette Engler was the
  • FIRST certified canine rehabilitation practitioner (CCRP) in Michigan

We have successfully treated thousands of pets since opening and are proud to be offering this service to our clients and community.

Through isolated and controlled exercises, we are able to help dogs return to normal function. Hydrotherapy has proven to be a very effective form of low-impact exercise, allowing us to target specific muscle groups without additional impact on painful joints. We also have state-of-the-art equipment such as laser therapy, electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, and extracorporeal shockwave therapy.

Our goal is to help your dog live a happier, healthier, pain-free life! We strive to help your dog get back to its normal routine, whether that routine is just taking a walk down the street or competing at national levels.

At ARC, we are committed to the bond between clients and their pets. Contact us for more information.

So very grateful to the Dr Kate Reynolds & the staff at Union Lake for the excellent care that we received during our dog Charlie’s spinal injury, surgery and rehab. We felt informed & confident as the Union Lake staff orchestrated a rehab plan. Although it’s been a long road to recovery that required extensive rehab he’s much better and pain free. We continue to partner with Union Lake and know that our dogs health is always the focus. We so appreciate the ❤️ and professional expertise that you continue to provide to our boy, Charlie!

This is a super easy review to write. My yorkie, Ginger, had cruciate surgery in the spring. As soon as I could after the surgery, I began bringing Ginger to therapy. Everyone there was top-notch in their field. We started slowly with laser treatments, cold/hot packs, stretches, massage and underwater treadmill. Then moved on to so many other creative therapy solutions, such as regular treadmill, cavaletti poles, obstacle courses, balancing exercises, core strength exercises, the list goes on. Now Ginger has been done with therapy since the end of July and you would never know she had surgery. No limp, great strength & agility. These guys know what they are doing and we MISS them!
