This is a new page that is designed to shed some light on canine/pet rehabilitation, as this is a growing field. You wouldn’t imagine having an orthopedic procedure done without a rehabilitation program intact for yourself, would you? Why not for your furry family member? Rehabilitation can maximize the results of surgery and in some cases speed up the recovery process. Also, there are some orthopedic and neurologic conditions that are better served with a rehabilitation program rather than surgery (and I am a surgeon saying this)! I hope to have guest contributors to this page – if you are in the field of rehabilitation and would like contribute, contact me! In addition to rehabilitation, we will feature orthotics and mobility assisting devices as indicated on this page – this should be a lot of fun. Get used to Frankie’s face, I’ll be using him as a model for different things as he is constantly in a rehabilitation program (check out the posts about him if you haven’t yet). Thanks for visiting!!
