K9 Rehabilitation

Rehab1Canine Rehab is a collaboration of two highly educated and licensed professions, physical therapy and veterinary medicine. Due to the definition of physical therapy in the state of Montana, any work done with canines is called Canine Rehabilitation. One must be a licensed physical therapist or veterinarian to gain certification from one of two national schools that specialize in Canine Rehabilitation. As a physical therapist practicing in the realm of Canine Rehabilitation, one must have a referral from a veterinarian. This team approach ensures that your dog will receive the best of both worlds-the veterinary and the physical therapy knowledge and expertise.
