REHABILITATION THERAPY

Valley Ranch Pet Clinic has now opened a Rehabilitation Center in our building! This center is run by  Elizabeth Nonnenmacher, DVM, CCRT.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009.  Following a passion for rehab, she received her Canine Rehabilitation Therapist certification with a focus of post-operative, sports medicine, and arthritic/neurologic conditions in 2014 from Canine Rehabilitation Institute.  She is a member of the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians (AARV) and AVMA.

Animal rehabilitation can reduce pain and enhance recovery from injury, surgery, degenerative diseases, age-related diseases, and obesity along with providing fast post-operative recovery. Our goal of physical rehabilitation for animals is to improve the patient’s quality of life and decrease pain.

Rehabilitation is the focus for our referrals.  Any other conditions that should arrive while here will be referred back to the primary veterinarian.  We have included a referral form, but you can also find a link on our website to print.

“Belle had not one, but two ACL repairs!  The rehab experience has been integral to her recovery.  Dr. Nonnenmacher and the staff have been excellent, keeping us well informed throughout the process.  Belle comes home exhausted, but happy after her sessions.”

“Buddy had the opportunity to work with Dr. Nonnenmacher got water therapy. He has surpassed our expectation of his quality of life since working with her! I would definitely recommend giving this therapy a try for pets.”
