I took my herding dog Hope to Mountainside Veterinary Rehabilitation to see Dr. Carlson as she had injured a muscle in her upper right front leg as well as her toe. Through rehabilitation involving acupuncture, chiropractic and massage as well as exercises to assist the muscle in healing, Hope is back competing. Dr. Carlson provided excellent care as well as taught me how to continue to support Hope as a working dog.
Joy, our Border Collie puppy, injured her left rib cage, resulting in a large hematoma behind her front leg. Her primary veterinarian, Dr. Betsy Gray placed a drain in the area and then as healing began to take place, I took her to Mountainside Veterinary Rehabilitation. Dr. Carlson began Integrative Medicine involving acupuncture, chiropractic and stretching exercises to assist Joy in her healing so that the injury would not inhibit her ability to fully extend and utilize her left leg. Joy is now in herding training and is fully healed with no evidence of her previous injury.
