What to Expect

puppy1.png

During your initial visit, you and your pet will be meeting with a veterinarian and a physical therapist certified in canine rehabilitation. This is a comprehensive evaluation that includes a detailed medical history and review of records, a thorough physical examination, and a rehabilitation evaluation which includes observation of the pet at a stance and during different gaits, measurements of joint range-of-motion and muscle mass, and an overall evaluation of pain and mobility.  Rehabilitation treatment plans are tailored to your specific pet, and therapies deemed appropriate will be performed at the initial visit.  You will be sent home with a home treatment plan detailing our findings and recommended treatments/exercises/stretches for you to perform at home.

Please bring, or have sent to our office, all pertinent medical records and radiographs (x-rays) for review. This will help us to customize an individual treatment plan best suited for your pet and its situation. This evaluation and plan will be sent to your regular veterinarian.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Monte-
    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-
    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."

  • "Bosco-
    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!"
