Canine Rehabilitation

Our goal in canine rehabilitation is to improve function and minimize pain for your canine companion. Working together are, Dr. Alice Wyatt, DVM, CCRP, Stacie Clark, RVT, CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners through the University of Tennessee) and Sarah Hammond, RVT, (pending CCRVN - Certified Canine Rehabilitation Veterinary Nurse) through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. Whether your pet just had orthopedic surgery, has a neurological disorder, is geriatric and slowing down, or anything else keeping your dog from living his or her best life, we can create a program specifically for your pet.
