REHAB VETERINARIAN SPECIALIZING IN PUPPIES & OLDER PETS

Description

VETERINARIAN: Tanya Grantham, BSc(Hons), BVSc (Veterinary Science), CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner), CCBW (Caninology Canine Body Worker), CVA (Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist), CertSCVA (Certificate of Safety and Competence in Veterinary Acupuncture), 2020 Finalist for Veterinary Rehabilitation Therapist of the Year. 

SPECIALIZING IN PUPPIES, OLDER, AND GERIATRIC DOGS AND CATS

My philosophy on treating juveniles: I firmly believe that the sooner a developmental condition is noticed and diagnosed, the more options are available to treat the condition. Soft tissue can influence the skeleton and indeed we see this with many problems associated with young dogs. Hip dysplasia and patellar luxation are probably the most discussed. Allow me to discuss physical therapy and exercises which may benefit you pet or patient.

My philosophy on treating older and geriatric dogs and cats: Veterinarians are taught to assist with pain in a multi-modal manner – specifically with regards to the use of medicines. The multi-modal approach I use is holistic. I am able to discuss the use of drugs in combination with physical therapy modalities that reduce pain in dogs and cats. These modalities include massage, electrotherapy and photobiomodulation (light therapy) which are within the reach of animal guardians and veterinary professionals alike. Acupuncture (and acupressure) can also be applied.

I provide consults for Trainers and Handler:

  • To assist with exercises that are both safe for the puppy/young dog and which simultaneously address the diagnosed condition.
  • To develop a relationship with trainers and handlers that focuses on improving your skills with regards to juvenile dogs that have developmental problems (for example hip dysplasia).
  • To discuss options and exercises for the older dog that are within the dog’s abilities but which also enhance mobility.

I provide consults for Veterinary Professionals:

  • To assist veterinary professionals to navigate the available information (around juvenile disorders) and to have more possibilities available to treat based on my experience in both small animal and physical rehabilitation practice.
  • To provide information about pain-relieving modalities that may be used to improve quality of life of older patients whilst allowing for pet parents to accept the inevitable transition of their beloved companion.
  • To engage in meaningful dialogue with my colleagues that provides an opportunity for reciprocal exchange of knowledge, which, in the bigger picture will benefit our profession, our patients and our clients.
    Why Choose Me?

    I am passionate about making a difference - and not only in the lives of physically compromised animal companions but also their human guardians. My mission is to create awareness, impart knowledge and teach practical steps to obtain measurable outcomes for my patients, clients and students alike. My focus is the best solution for you and your animal. 

     

    But, just as important, I believe in helping you obtain confidence and the peace of mind that comes from truly understanding the condition you are dealing with and knowing what options are available. I will lead you through a process in deciding which of these will suit you best, and what practical steps you can take to move forward - from the very first consultation. I will guide you, whether you are a professional or a pet parent, from theory to application, in such a way as to bring new light to both. 

    Information I Require

    If contacting me for help with a pet following injury or illness, I will need the following information before the consult 

    • Pet's name, breed, weight, age
    • Pet's injury or issue
    • When did injury or issue occur
    • In what sport or activity is the pet involved
    • Why are you seeking a consult
    • Veterinary professional who is currently treating the pet including clinic name, phone, e-mail

    Once you purchase the consult, you will be provided with instructions.

    How Virtual Consults Work

    Teleconsultations for Pet Parents and Trainers & Handlers

    A Teleconsultation is a live pet care visit that's done using a cell phone, tablet, or computer. You can access Vital Vet Consultants from around the world without ever leaving your home. Each Consultant is carefully chosen for their expertise in a specific area including orthopedic and neurologic conditions, sports medicine, athletic conditioning and return to sport, rehabilitation and physical therapy, holistic therapies, assistive products and equipment, and much more. Consultants answer questions and teach skills and techniques useful for pets. You may recognize our Consultants - they are some of the top people and pioneers in their field. We are incredibly lucky to have them as Consultants, and our pets are the better for it. 

    Teleconsultations for Veterinary Care Professionals 

    A Teleconsultation is a live patient care visit that's done using a cell phone, tablet, or computer. You can access Vital Vet Consultants from around the world without leaving your clinic. This is an excellent way to co-treat with a specialist without impacting your veterinary-client-patient relationship. Each Consultant is carefully chosen for their expertise in a specific area including orthopedic and neurologic conditions, sports medicine, athletic conditioning and return to sport, rehabilitation and physical therapy, holistic therapies, assistive products and equipment, and much more.

    What Happens After I Book a Teleconsultation?

    Your Consultant will contact you to schedule a convenient virtual appointment date. You may be asked to submit information about your pet to review before your meeting. Most appointments are scheduled within 5 business days of purchase but can be made sooner, if needed. That's it. We want to make it as simple as possible for you and your pet to get the help you need.

    Testimonials

    At first when I went to meet Dr Tanya I did not know what to expect and rated them based on one visit. Now after being there again, and seeing how thorough they are, and how accurate their acupuncture etc. is, I am very impressed. Their care is genuine and rare. Definitely a must for an injured fur baby, even if all you want is their opinion.” Nicole Sequeira (client)

     

    "Dr Tanya’s teaching, takes a "real world" approach by providing practical rehab exercises for different conditions that clinicians will find easy to teach and owners will find easy to learn."  Dr Steve Denley, BVSc, CVA, CVCH, GradDip ABM, Australia

     

    “I was very appreciative of being made part of the healing team as the manner in which you explained my part in the process was excellent and where I did not fully understand your requirements you were patient in your explanation. I learnt a lot about my dog and his healing process.”  Les Leadbitter (client)
