Why Use Us?

Our goal is to provide you and your pet with the best experience in physical rehabilitation.  We have found that when you pursue physical rehabilitation for your pet, you are dedicated to improving your 4-legged (ok, sometimes 2 or 3-legged) companion's quality of life.  You are the reason we are so passionate about and successful in improving our patients' mobility and comfort.  We work together as a team.  This team includes you, your pet, members of your household, the rehabilitation therapist (that's where we come in), and your regular veterinarian.  By offering therapy in the comfort of your regular veterinarian's office, we strive to make everything convenient for you.  You will receive compassionate, high quality care.

Who's in the picture above?

Dr. Karyn Fein and Charlie are working to build Charlie's core strength.  Charlie is a sweet girl with bilateral luxating patellas (loose knee caps) and a torn cruciate ligament.  Medial patellar luxation is a risk factor for cranial cruciate tears.  This is the dog equivalent to ACL tears in humans.  Her treatment includes a combination of therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and weight loss.

Dr. Fein has been working in the field of veterinary medicine for almost twenty years, with half of that time working as a small animal veterinarian.  She did her undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland where she was a member of the College Park Volunteer Fire Department. 

She has always been interested in nutrition, physical therapy, and exercise.  These interests led her from being an internationally competitive gymnast, to working with human athletes, to ultimately obtaining her certification in physical rehabilitation.  She is now very excited to work with animal athletes and offer physical rehabilitation to her patients in veterinary medicine.  She obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist through Canine Rehabilitation Institute.  In her free time, she enjoys rock climbing, mountain and road biking, snow sports, and spending time with her family.
