Ginger now has an appointment scheduled at GA Vet Rehab for an eval, exercise prescription, etc. I'm looking forward to this as a next step in her recovery. Any hints on what to expect or suggestions for preparation that might make process easier? They were informative in terms of we do a comprehensive eval and so on, but it's a bit of a new language to me. As of now I'm just thinking show up and they will take it from there.
Joined forum after Ginger, 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd, had front leg shattered by car on 4/1/17. Front leg amputated on 4/5/17. Still learning to be a tripawd mom.

That's been my experience. When we went to the rehab vet, they first chatted with us about Jack's history and current level of function, and then moved on to watching her walk and then a bit of hands-on time to see if she was tender anywhere. After that, the vet gave us her opinion on the best course of action moving forwards.

I was just wondering how the rehab was going? We have a 10 year old rottweiler, whose front leg was just amputated. He's 10 days post-surgery, but wondering if we should get him in rehab once the stitches are out?
We are also in GA--so would love to hear your feedback on the process and the clinic.
