When your pet gets injured and needs physical therapy and rehabilitation, don’t you wish to have a reference guide book.
Susan E. Davis a licensed physical therapist, has written a book: Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation for Animals. Ms. Davis transitioned from humans to a veterinary physical therapy practice. Her book serves as a guide and resource for pet parents.
The first five chapters outline and provide advice on how to choose a therapist, what to expect and the different types of treatment/techniques/equipments. The rest of the book is very detailed discussing kinds of rehabilitation. It can be technical but beneficial for pet parents. Also, the descriptive illustrations throughout the book are helpful.
This book is not a how-to but its a guide/reference. As Ms. Davis stated “The best practice is to provide physical therapy concurrently with veterinary care.”
Through out the book, Ms. Davis knowledge and experience are evident. The Best Guidance statements scattered in the book are good reminders: “The best treatment intervention plans are those that allow the entire team to communicate together, including the pet.”
There are options when your pet gets injured and needs physical therapy and rehabilitation.
