    Call around to some of the larger vet practices; I needed one in Nov. for rehab of a dog that had spinal surgery. There's a good one in my area (I'm southwest of Wash. D.C.) but in MD, closer to Annapolis; with traffic it was a 2 hr. drive. So I started calling and found a veterinary practice that has a new rehab dept., underwater treadmill and cold laser treatments, only 45 minutes from me and very reasonable. The rehab guy was great, in fact he does mostly TPLO surgeries and chronic conditions. Rehab for dogs is fairly new (with the exception of serious retriever folks needing rehab after TPLO surgery) but gaining ground so you'd be surprised what you can find if you start looking.

    I've heard some good things about this place Doug-- in Sumner. There may be a couple other places too. Will ask my co-owner who lives over there.

    Seattle Veterinary Specialists in Kirkland - Dr. Kristin Kirkby is a well-known surgeon/rehab therapist and speaks internationally on rehab. They have a good program there.

    Also you can look for rehab therapists on both the Canine Rehabilitation Intitute's webpage at: caninerehabintitute.com or University of Tennessee at: utcaninerehab.com

    WAZOO? Well that splains thins..
    .
    When looking into rehab facilities at a minimum check that technicians have canine rehab certification from Univ Tennessee.
    There are very few vets that specialize in rehab. Some of the better cut guys have expanded practices to include rehab.
