Hello. 

Anyone have a great experience in Orange County California with a specific Orthopedist, or PT for soft tissue injury in their tripawd? I have some good recommendations but just curious to throw out the net 🙂

Sure, what city would be closest to you?

I can go to lots of OC cities: Tustin, Orange, Anaheim, Laguna, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo, North Tustin, Costa Mesa. Shushu loves the car. Lol. I could even go to LA if need be.

She's a lucky dawg!

Well I'll be honest, I'm biased toward Dr. Amy Kramer at BARC in Torrance. I know that's a haul for you. But we have personally known her for a long time, have interviewed her several times and know that she is one the best in the field.

Next up, I would look into Canine Rehab of OC, in Newport Beach. I don't know them personally but in looking at their staff credentials, they have multiple accreditations, so they can offer a variety of modalities for treatment, which is what you want in a clinic.

I tend to prefer rehab centers that only do rehab, as opposed to a vet clinic that happens to do rehab (unless they are a large specialty clinic). 

I would also check out this article, which shares some tips about finding a qualified rehab center (for instance, making sure the practice has a veterinarian on site, preferably one who is also credentialed with the CCRT or CCRP education.

Thank you SO VERY much. I was able to interview someone today who was terrific, did a home visit, and is CCRP certified. I am going to stick with her as I expect some great improvements given the thoroughness of her evaluation and what seemed like a very large knowledge base and great connection with Shush——and ShuShu clearly helped out and communicated where her booboos were—-but I am so glad to have your recommendations and will hang on to them. Torrance is also never too far to go for a fur kid big-blink

Awww. Thank you so much. I am relieved. I am amazed by you by the way. I somehow landed on more of your story with Eurydice. Very hard to read and brought me to tears—-but just sending you love for all you do for all of us in her name. heart💜🌷🌸💕
