Debbie Gross Saunders, MSPT, OCS, CCRP is truly a wizard.
I took my dog to three veterinary hospitals including Tufts
and none of them were able to diagnose her problem. Debbie
figured out what was wrong on our first visit. She specializes
in physical therapy and rehabilitation for animals using
many techniques including movement and gait analysis, laser
treatment, manual therapy, modalities and more. She is a
truly talented and caring person.
I just wanted to let you know that we just returned from the 2008 North American Dog Agility Championships and Aja placed second in her division! It would have never happened without you and your treatment.
This time last year I was thinking that I may have to face the reality that she could not do agility anymore. She ran beautifully and held up for the entire 5 days. I will be forever grateful for all that you have done for her. I remember you saw her for the first time at the end of a very long day at a seminar in Baltimore. The was the beginning of a great outcome!
