What to expect: A client’s first visit will be a consult with our Certified Rehab Practitioner, Jodi Seidel. After reviewing the pet’s history, Jodi will do a thorough exam to get baseline measurements on range of motion, balance, gait, muscle mass, etc. Then, she will discuss patient goals and develop a personalized rehab plan for your pet.
