The Wet Paws Club is for those Center for Rehabilitation & Pain Management patients who receive aquatic treadmill therapy. Under the care of Linda Franzini, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner, these pets are able to exercise despite arthritis, injury, or recovery from orthopedic surgery.
Welcome to the Wet Paws Club!
As we begin our seventh year performing physical rehabilitation at Winslow Animal Hospital, I would like to acknowledge all the wonderful pets that have passed through our doors (and our hearts) over the last 6 years. During that time, we have helped hundreds of dogs to recover from orthopedic and neurologic surgeries, soft tissue injuries, arthritic and mobility issues, and weight loss programs. It has been both an honor and a privilege to have had the opportunity to work with and get to know each and every one of them!
In 2009, we started our “wet paws club,” where we take a photo of each dog coming in for therapy, while in the underwater treadmill, and post it on a bulletin board in our rehab room for all to see. We are about to start working on our 4th board, and thought it would be fun to share our photos online with all of you each month. As we begin posting our newest members, I would like to share photos of our previous members that are already hanging on the boards in our rehab room. I would also like to take a moment to thank all of their loving and dedicated owners for trusting us with their care.
With much love and appreciation,
Linda Franzini CVT, CCRP
Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner.
