Physical Rehabilitation

Did your pet recently have surgery? Is your pet aging and not quite as active as they used to be? Does your pet need help getting fit? Is your pet an athlete that needs a conditioning program to remain competitive?

Injuries, arthritis and weight loss require dedication and a daily commitment to exercise for your pet to recover completely. Maintaining a canine athlete can feel like a full time job. With Dr. Lori Rockwell's help, she will streamline your home exercise program to make the most efficient use of your limited time.

"Best service for your dog or cat. I have a typical very busy Border Collie who broke her leg a year ago. The vet sent her home with pain pills and a six week timeline until she could go for walks again. Thanks to Dr. Lori's work, we did better than just go for a walk, she was running and playing and performing tricks! A year later we had Lori back out again to help with a new back issue my girl has, and she found the issue right away and really helped her in just the first session.

Easy, user-friendly exercises we can maintain and continue here at home and lots of check-in's and calls! Would recommend STARS to anyone who loves their pet!"
