Public Invited to See Pet Rehab Demonstrations and Meet ‘Celebrity’ Guests

“Through customized therapeutic programs, we see our patients’ quality of life improve. Helping our best friends get back their mobility and ease pain is key to helping them live longer,” said Dr. Kramer.

Bringing a holistic approach to veterinary physical therapy, California Animal Rehabilitation (C.A.R.E.) is opening its doors at its new advanced facility to the public for an Open House on Oct. 13 from 1 to 5 p.m. to get an inside view of how the team’s comprehensive treatment program works. Local pet celebrity Philly, a recently rescued Pit Bull who was saved by LAPD officers after being injured, will be on hand to show off his rehab success.

“We’ve seen amazing progress with dogs, cats and even rabbits coming to C.A.R.E for treatment of injuries or to gain greater comfort in dealing with the challenges of aging. We are so fortunate in the work that we do, that we get to see four-, and sometimes two- or three-legged, furry family members recover and improve their movement and general health,” said California Animal Rehabilitation co-founder and veterinarian, Dr. Jessica Waldman.

Patients like Philly are not uncommon at C.A.R.E. Philly was found on the side of the road by two L.A.P.D. officers. Philly was likely hit by a car and had significant injuries. After being abandoned by his owners, the officers stepped up to adopt him and raise funds for his treatment. When he first arrived at C.A.R.E., he was without the use of one of his front limbs, had a respiratory infection and a very mangled coat. C.A.R.E. donated treatment to help restore functionality to his leg and his personality has blossomed in the process. The officers have since started "The Philly Phoundation" in his name, which has started raising funds to help with the adoption and foster care of other rescued animals in need of medical care and a new home.

At the event, Dr. Waldman and co-founder and physical therapist, Dr. Amy Kramer, will provide rehabilitation demonstrations including: acupuncture, underwater treadmill, cold laser, lap pool, therapeutic exercises in the gym. Attendees will able to meet the staff and speak with the medical team to learn more about the benefits of rehabilitative treatment.

“Through customized therapeutic programs, we see our patients’ quality of life improve. Helping our best friends get back their mobility and ease pain is key to helping them live longer,” said Dr. Kramer.

Celebrity guests in attendance include client and actress Katee Sackhoff, one of the stars of television series Battlestar Galactica. Among the pet celebrities attending the Open House will be Bodhi, one of the Great Danes from Lady Gaga’s "Poker Face” video. He was treated for degenerative changes due to old age, and recovered so well that he no longer needs regular treatment.

Additionally, guests will be eligible to participate in an opportunity drawing including prizes for services, gift baskets and other C.A.R.E. gifts.
