Q:  Do I need a referral from my veterinarian? 

A: Yes.  Florida law requires a referral from a veterinarian for a PT to treat your dog. This will ensure accurate diagnosis so a proper treatment program can be developed by the CCRP. 


Q: I have pet insurance for my dog. Will this cover the cost of rehab?

A: You will have to contact your pet insurance company to assess coverage. While we do not bill your pet insurance directly, we will gladly provide you with a detailed receipt for possible reimbursement.

Q: Who can call themselves a Certified Canine Rehab Practioner (CCRP)? 

A: There are currently 3 programs in the US that offer Canine Rehab certificates. The program at the University of TN College of Veterinary Medicine admits only Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants.

Q: What is Laser Therapy?

A: Laser uses a process called photobiomodulation to assist in the body's own natural healing process. Infrared light causes a biochemical cascade of events in the cells resulting in pain relief, decreased inflammation and accelerated healing. Class 4 laser is any laser producing more than .5mW of power and requires eye protection for all while being administered. Class 3B laser is sometimes referred to as "cold laser", and is less than .5mW of power. This has minimal effectiveness due to the lack of total energy that can be delivered.  Laser is pain-free and takes only minutes to administer the proper dose. 



Q: Does my dog's weight affect their health?

A: Sadly, according to the AKC, 56% of dogs in the US are overweight. And yes, as with humans, there are serious health consequences. Obesity is being normalized, and many vets see obesity as our dogs #1 health concern. Overweight dogs have:

  • an average decreased lifespan of 2 years

  • increased cancer risk

  • increased risk of arthritis 

  • decreased energy

  • decreased mobility
