Singapore's Mobile & House-call Animal Rehabilitation Service
Mission of OAR
Optimus Animal Rehabilitation is Singapore's mobile/House-call animal rehabilitation (physiotherapy) service, dedicated to deliver a comprehensive service containing a wide variety of different therapies, integrated and customised carefully to the needs of your animals.
We pride ourselves for our highly personalised and flexible service, provided at your convenience where its is most conducive for your animals; home, without compromising the quality of our program.
The therapy session is an artful mix of the multiple therapies available under the umbrella of rehabilitation so our clients do not have to worry about which therapy should they go for.
Transporting the patient around can be financially taxing and stressful for the patient, therefore affecting the effectiveness and sustainability of the therapy. Feeling of safety is a huge contribution to healing and there is no environment better at providing that then home.
The bond shared between the client, patient and therapist has a huge part to play in the rehab journey and we do not take it lightly. 1 therapist is assign to look after 1 patient from the start to end. This ensures that our programs are always moulded to suit the patients need at any point in time.
We believe that the therapy works best when our clients become the expert of their animal’s body. A big part of our rehab program is to do with empowering our clients with every information and knowledge they need to know about their animal’s body. This contributes to our vision of raising the overall standard for petcare in Singapore.

Conditions related to nerve, brain, spinal cord damage that impacted the patient’s mobility. Programs are targeted to improve coordination, proprioception and improve the mobility and essential neurological function of the patient.
Pain caused by other conditions on the list. Programs are targeted to use non-invasive and sustainable methods to reduce pain and maximise comfort of the patient, improving the overall quality of life
Paralysis cases often have a range of different outcome depending on the cause and severity of the paralysis. The goal is to improve the quality of life of the patient; through improving the mobility of the patient and equipping our clients with essential knowledge on how to manage paralysed animals.
Injuries such as sprain, strains and fractures can happen to the active, the old and also patients with postural deformities. Rehab helps with facilitating the recovery of the injury and to minimise risk of secondary problems.
A holistic approach to keep chronic pain in control for the improvement of quality of life for our elderly or severely ill animals. The goal is to relieve any maximise physiological comfort with or without the intention to cure the medical condition. This type of rehab is usually designed at a slower pace, hospice care and palliative education to the owners.
Pre & Post Surgery Rehab
Surgery often requires or takes a toll on the body. Muscle wastage and stiffness are very common in post-surgical cases. Rehab for such cases are targeted to improve muscle mass and pain management, both of which helps to ensure a complete recovery from the surgery or to prepare the body for surgery.
Pre & Post Surgery Rehab
This can range from degenerative spinal conditions that are common in senior animals to intervertebral disc disease that are common in specific breeds such as the chondrodystrophic breeds(Frenchies, Corgis, Dachshunds). Spinal condition can cause mobility issue or persistent pain in the patient. Rehab targets the management of these 2 problems and the slowing down the degeneration of the condition.
