Meet the staff at Animal Therapy Center!

Rehabilitation is a team effort at the Animal Therapy Center. While your pet will be evaluated by our veterinarian on your first visit, you can expect to spend time with one or more of our team members over the course of your pet’s treatment. All staff meets regularly to discuss cases and share ideas for improved treatment plans.
