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.
Dr. Ginny Carlson, DVM has worked with Sierra Wildlife Rescue for a number of years. Her dedicated care of domestic animals has extended to wildlife and Sierra Wildlife Rescue is very grateful that Dr. Carlson continues to work with us to rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife.
