This little beauty is named Bliss, how perfect is that?!! She was out in our yard for a little fresh air and looked so pretty we had to snap a photo :) ...

Say hello to Abby, a very sweet 12 year old Westie mix. She was a brave girl for her dental cleaning and now her kisses are sweet as honey ♥ ...

Here's a pic of Tulo in his happy place, snuggled in Danielle's arms ♥ ...

Mr Merlin is so relaxed during his appointment he decided to stretch out for a belly rub and a 'catnap'. 🐾 😉 ...

Dr. Robin Rainford and Anila Rondeau RVT, have completed certification through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute in Colorado and Florida.  Dr. Tutteli Pukarinen continues to practice acupuncture.

 

We are passionate about maximizing your pets' recovery after injury or orthopedic surgery.  Patients who undergo rehabilitation and physical therapy have improved healing times and return to normal activity more rapidly.  Senior pets benefit from rehabilitation through improved mobility and better quality of life.

 

Our goal is to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment options for your pets' particular condition.  Soft tissue injuries, such as tendinopathies and muscle strains can be particularly difficult to diagnose and treat. 

It is very common to find compensatory problems which makes a full body assessment very mportant.  Our initials assessments are one hour long and consist of history taking, gait and posture analysis, a full orthopedic, soft tissue and neurologic exam and a recommended treatment plan for the condition.  The treatment plans may include Pulse Electromagnetic Field Bed Therapy (PEMF), laser therapy, acupuncture, manual therapy, tens or Electrical Muscle Stimulation, massage, stretching and in-clinic and home exercise programs.

 

 

 

We welcome our current patients as well as referrals from other veterinarians.
