Rehabilitation

We are pleased to offer canine rehabilitation for canine patients. We not only accept our own clients but will also accept referral work as well.  Each patient is different and may not be suited to certain activity, which is why all programs are overseen by Dr. Rogers with the help of Natelle (RVT) and assistant Caitlyn.  Together this team will tailor a program specific to your pet’s condition.
