We are a state-of-the-art, free-standing, veterinary rehabilitation facility located in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are dedicated solely to rehabilitation, acupuncture, and conditioning of companion animals.
Our center is uniquely co-operated by a veterinarian, Dr. Shawna McCall, and a physical therapist, Pat Werner. As a team we work closely with your regular veterinarian to incorporate rehabilitation and/or acupuncture into your pet's current health plan.
It is our goal to improve your pet's quality of life by aiding in their recovery from injury or surgery, improving their mobility or activity level, helping to address their pain due to age-related diseases or other causes, and to prevent future problems through conditioning or weight loss.
Veterinary rehabilitation is quickly becoming the standard of care for helping to treat physical injury or illness in animals. Ask your primary veterinarian if your pet may benefit from physical rehabilitation. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Pat and Shawna have had a tremendous impact on our dog Monte's recovery and quality of life. Monte ruptured a vertebral disc in his neck and lost significant use of his hind legs. Since surgery, Pat has performed physical therapy and Shawna has performed acupuncture. Monte is now walking and running and appears to be pain free. Monte responds very well to Pat's underwater treadmill treatment and to Shawna's acupuncture sessions. Just as important, Monte has bonded with both Pat and Shawna. We are convinced that Monte's continuing progress is best left in Pat's and Shawna's hands. We don't like to think what Monte's quality of life would be like without their excellent care.
Bruno, our 12 year old German Shepherd, suffered a FCE on November 23, 2008. Although he had managed with slow progressing Degenerative Myelopathy, this incident nearly paralyzed him. The vets could not offer much hope for a recovery, stating that there would probably be no real improvement after the first two weeks. We were fortunate to find Pat Werner with her skill, caring, and experience. After beginning a series of physical therapy sessions, including the underwater treadmill, Bruno showed marked improvement. He steadily gained strength and coordination. Pat suggested we have Shawna evaluate Bruno as a candidate for acupuncture... Bruno's physical therapy and acupuncture not only restored his mobility, it made him really happy. He truly looked forward to working with Pat in the tank and then relaxing with Shawna for acupuncture. We credit and thank Pat and Shawna for the life they returned to our friend.
Pat and Shawna are two of the most compassionate and knowledgeable people we know. When our German Shepherd, Bosco, was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy, a progressively debilitating disease, through physical therapy and acupuncture, we are convinced Pat and Shawna were able to slow down the progression to give Bosco more quality time to spend with his two sisters and to give him a better quality of life. Now we have our Rottweiler, Maggie, in physical therapy and acupuncture due to bone cancer which led to an amputation of her back leg. Through physical therapy and acupuncture, Maggie is learning to walk again pain free. We would recommend Utah Pet Rehab to anyone!
Pat and Shawna have greatly increased out dog's quality of life. They are gentle, caring and respectful with Clio. We feel like a member of our family is helping to care for her when she gets a treatment from them.
