Testimonials

  • "I was thrilled with the entire process.  The pre-consult was an easy process.  The video consult was a great tool and I am glad that we were able to do that call with Penne and her foster mom present.  I loved being able to demonstrate with Penne and get real-time feedback from you as we worked.  The post-consult report was thorough and very informative. The images included were tremendously helpful for reference.  I love the format of the report.  It is wonderful that you can affirm and support the successful techniques that have been working, along with very insightful recommendations for future work with Penne.  I love neuro-rehab, and I look to those who are experienced in the field for guidance and knowledge.  I am very appreciative that you were able to make this happen for us, and I am excited to incorporate the techniques that you advised into her program.  This entire process has been a positive experience for me as a therapist, and I would gladly utilize this service in the future.  Working in collaboration with fellow rehabilitation therapists is such a valuable resource. I truly appreciate the positive feedback and the guidance that you provided. At no point did I feel critiqued or scrutinized, it was a positive and collaborative effort.  Thank you again for all of your help.  P.S.:  I heard from the foster mom this morning, who said that Penne actually took a step with her left hind leg this morning!  I am so thankful that she is making these gains.  She shows us just enough progress each week to keep us going.  :)Lisa, Canine Rehabilitation Professional, Pennsylvania, US
  • "It was a pleasure to have Amie come to our home. She's attentive, thorough and professional. She not only demonstrates each activity, but follows up with a written explanation, which we especially appreciate." Linda
  • "Amie was absolutely amazing with our rescue dog who came to our family as a tripod. With Amie’s expertise in physical therapy, she literally changed our pup’s ability to function daily for the better. She was always calm, patient, kind, and completely won over our dog who was very timid and wary of anything and anyone new. She was excellent at showing us what we needed to do between her visits, answered any concerns and questions both clearly and patiently, and was always positive and reassuring. She made a night and day difference for our dog whose life continues to be even more full than was ever expected. We would highly recommend her." Jonathan
  • "Thank you so very much. I am beyond grateful." David

  • "We had the pleasure of working with Amie when our Border Collie, Tug, pulled up lame with a psoas strain. Amie examined Tug thoroughly on our first visit and then prescribed a series of exercises for her. Because schedules are busy, we did a lot of work with Amie via video! Before progressing to more difficult exercises or more strenuous activities, we’d send a series of videos of Tug doing her exercises and/or moving about. Amie would analyze them at full speed and in slow motion and would offer feedback, both about how Tug looked and what to do next. It was a great way allow Amie to closely guide Tug’s rehab, even though there were several weeks between visits.Nolan, New Hampshire, US

  •  "I compete nationally with my dogs in agility and am boarded in veterinary surgery and sports medicine. As a surgeon rehabilitation therapy is key to the overall success to my patients and I want the best for my patients. Amie is the best! I trust her knowledge and understanding getting dogs back on the podium or hiking with the owners. She stays current and is able to see the pet as a whole - not just the injury - she is key to getting your pet back into better shape and balance than ever before.  With everyone so busy online video reviews and consults are amazing! Amie can see if you are performing home exercises correctly, see if your pet is having difficulty performing a task, or see your pet in its own environment exercising and how they are progressing or seeing a subtle lameness. My own dogs have been treated and maintained by Amie and with my schedule the ability to send her videos and be analyzed is perfect! And I am very selective who works on my kids! She sees exactly how they are moving and give recommendations as needed. Amie not only has the knowledge but is easy to communicate with and will be honest with you and do everything she can to help you get your best friend back in the game!Mich, DVM, DACVS, DACVSMR, CCRT
