"In May of 2008, Nate was diagnosed with an ACL tear in his rear left leg. A Tibial Tuberosity Advancement procedure was performed and after a difficult recovery, I began to look for further rehabilitation care.

"It has been 3 months since our 6-year-old pitbull Emmett tore his cruciate ligament in his hind leg. About 5 weeks after surgery, Emmett was still refusing to use his leg and began showing signs in his other hind leg that he may need a second surgery for another condition. Needless to say, we were beside ourselves. Then, the surgeon referred us to ...Read More >>


"Marlowe saw the coyote before we did, pulled away and gave chase. We found him nearby, his paw impossibly bent, bones shattered and ligaments blown out. After an expensive operation, we were not looking to spend more, and we looked forward to his recovery after 15 weeks in a cast. The recovery was slow, but he did start walking better. To a point. ...Read More >>

I'll be continuing to send folks your way." B. B., June 2010


I didn't know the extent of repercussions following a torn ligament. I think I opted for alternative surgery and therapy because I had an insurance policy I believed in. The process was long and had highs and lows. I have to say I was skeptical along the way. However the systematic therapy treatments, my commitment to follow through at home , and the ...Read More >>


This is the story of Jesse Pants Schmidt. Jesse is a sports dog and loves catching balls. He loves a good run in the hills and fighting coyotes. A couple of years ago Jesse's hind leg began hurting and he was limping. I had the radical surgery, TPLO. The recovery was horrible. His leg was so sore and swollen. It took weeks of recovery. A year later ...Read More >>

Fred is a 9 month old lab puppy who before therapy at CARE couldn’t walk more than a block without stopping. He had already had surgery on both shoulders and was experiencing quite a bit of pain in his hips and elbows as well. Throughout therapy, Fred has steadily improved and is able to exercise regularly and basically be a “puppy” again. More ...Read More >>
