Sure, what city would be closest to you?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

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.
