Georgia Bottoms Owner & Practitioner at Fetch Canine Rehab.
The objective of Fetch is to promote a healthy lifestyle, improve strength, flexibility, balance, proprioception and coordination in order to enhance the patient's quality of life. After a thorough evaluation and assessment of your pet, a personal treatment program is established to optimize your pet's functional mobility.
At Fetch we have an underwater treadmill, which provides resistance for muscular strength and buoyancy to support the body and reduce the effects of gravity. We have a class IV CTS laser system, which can increase the speed and tensile strength of tissue repair, decrease pain and inflammation, accelerate nerve regeneration and assist with collagen building and formation of capillaries for wound care. Additionally, we use the Game Ready cold compression unit for inflammation and pain control, and electrical stimulation to elicit muscle contraction to re-educate the muscles to contract and decrease pain. We also utilize various physical therapy techniques which include manual therapy, joint mobilizations, physioballs and neuro re-education.
Have you ever wondered if your pet is in pain? How do you know? Changes in their behavior or demeanor could include limping, decrease in appetite, difficultly getting in and out of the car, daily activities become difficult and/or certain areas on your pet are now painful to touch.

Frisco decided to come to Fetch after having surgery to repair her subluxating patella. Unlike most cats who have a hard time with controlled movement, Frisco was able to adapt to the underwater treadmill and therapeutic exercises and after five (5) weeks of physical therapy, Frisco was walking with confidence. We now have to add that Fetch treats dogs and some cats thanks to Frisco.
