In today’s veterinary blog, how Dr. Teri Dowdell uses rehabilitation therapies to restore range of motion, strength, mobility, and quality of life to pets.
There are several reasons that pets and their families utilize the WestVet Physiotherapy Center. Led by Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist, Dr. Teri Dowdell, you may see some pets strengthening muscles following veterinary surgery. Other pets are getting fit, losing weight, or preparing for hunting season. Others are undergoing treatments like acupuncture or laser therapy to deal with pain and restore range of motion.
Meet Blazer, a beautiful Border Collie. She visits Dr. Dowdell to stay in tip-top shape for agility competitions. Recently her family shared these pictures with us of Blazer in action. They wrote this to us:
“…Blazer was having a problem with her leg/shoulder and Dr Dowdell did work with her including cold laser, acupuncture, and stretching over several appointments. She has been fine since then! Dr Dowdell does a great job with keeping her healthy!”
We thought these pictures were stunning! Go, Blazer, go!
