SERVICES WE OFFER

Our Cutting Edge Laser can help many patients with pain, arthritis, post surgery, wounds, muscle strains, sprains, tendonitis, disc disease, and the list keeps going. Laser therapy can reduce pain, decrease inflammation, restore mobility, decrease muscle spasming, improve blood flow, increase cell replication, increase fibroblast and collagen replication, stimulate cartilage, and promote nerve growth.

Walking Paws works with a local dog pool for patients that could benefit from swimming. Swimming can be used to promote weight loss, strength build, improve flexion,increase cardiovascular health, or allow movement for patients unable to stand or walk. The hydrostatic pressure of water is also great at reducing swelling and relieving sore joints too. By utilizing buoyancy one can off load the joints or injured area while allowing safe build up of muscles.

Walking Paws partners with a mobile underwater treadmill service to bring hydrotherapy to your home. Walking in the underwater treadmill can be utilized to promote strength building without having to load an injured limb or sore joint. This is service is great for patients post surgery or for those needing to lose weight.

We are also trained massage therapists! Your pet can enjoy a general relaxing massage or targeted therapeutic massage to relieve pain and tension.

At Walking Paws Rehab we are partners with Orthopets. Through advance training we are able to assist clients in deciding whether an orthotic is the right solution for their pet. We can make a mold of your pet’s limb, assist with the design process, and perform fittings of orthotics or prosthetics. Walking in a brace or new limb is challenging so we can help train pets how to utilize their new device.

At Walking Paws Rehab we offer both dry needling and electroacupuncture. Traditionally acupuncture has been used to treat pain, headaches, organ dysfunction, and nausea. However, we can also utilize acupuncture to stimulate nerves treating back disorders, nerve issues, urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence. Often we use acupuncture to release trigger points in muscle bellies.

All of our patients receive a home exercise program that consist of videos. We not only treat your pet, but also teach you how to help your pet at home.

We are skilled at finding trigger points in muscles, determining which muscles are tight, and how to safely stretch each muscle. At Walking Paws Rehab we also teach you how to perform stretches and massage on your pet.

Our therapists have advance training in performing mobilizations and range of motion movements to improve alignment, range of motion, and to reduce pain.

Utilized in humans too electrotherapy serves many purposes. By sending an electrical current through an area one can treat pain, stimulate nerves, and build muscle depending on the settings chosen. At Walking Paws Rehab you can purchase or rent a unit to perform sessions at home.

By using pulsed electromagnetic fields one could decrease swelling and reduced pain without heating tissue. The technology was first used amongst plastic surgeons for pain reduction, swelling reduction, and to speed up wound healing. Then it gained popularity amongst orthopedic surgeons to improve bone healing. Now that more studies are evolving, PEMF is being utilized more by pain specialists. In humans PEMF is FDA approved for post operative pain and edema (swelling). At Walking Paws Rehab we have both Respond Beds and ASSISI loops for our pet patients.

By utilizing T Touch Wraps one can reduce anxiety, stimulate nerves, improve alignment, and strength build a specific muscle. We have many techniques to teach owners how to apply wraps at home.

If you have a pet in need of assistance we sell and perform wheelchair fittings. We can help your pet learn how to maneuver in a wheelchair.


Ultrasound therapy is frequently used on muscles and joints. Ultrasound therapy can reduce swelling to an area and decrease pain. It can also heat a muscle belly to improve blood flow and speed up healing. Ultrasounds can relax a muscle belly aiding trigger points and sore areas.

We have many different types of rehab equipment that we get patients on. By asking a pet to perform a certain exercise you can strength build a specific muscle, improve range of motion to a joint, improve balance, or retrain one to walk.

Your dog can look like an Olympic athlete too. Rock taping can be used to lift the skin off the underlying tissue improving blood flow, lymphatic flow, and reducing swelling to an area. It can be used to treat bruises and inhibit pain. We also sell Rocktape and can teach clients how to perform techniques at home.

Whether your pet needs to lose weight or requires a disease specific diet we can help. 

If you have a pet in need of weight loss we can help with conditioning through targeted exercises and diet.

Conditions we Commonly diagnose and treat

At Walking Paws Rehab we treat a wide range of conditions. Even though a lot of our patients are referred from a primary vet, neurologist, or orthopedic surgeon a referral is not required. If you notice that your pet has started limping, is getting weaker, slowing down, or exhibiting pain we can help you narrow down what is going on with your pet and what to do about it. Below are common conditions we diagnose and treat, however our expertise are not limited to such conditions.

Hi there!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope I could be of service to you, your family, and your special loved ones. A little about me... I started my career working at an equine rehabilitation center. We would rehabilitate injured or abused horses and once healed train them to help special needs children through hippotherapy. This is where my passion for helping animals began and what motivated me to pursue college. I received my bachelors in physiology and veterinary science from the University of Arizona. Throughout college I worked as a veterinary technician at a wonderful practice in Tucson. I also performed research at the Arizona Cancer Center where I researched drug development to prevent the migration of ovarian cancer.

After graduating I moved to Colorado to pursue my doctorates in veterinary medicine at the amazing Colorado State University.  Shortly after passing boards I worked in South Africa in wildlife anesthesiology. Through my time in Africa I was able to treat rhinos, lions, giraffes, wildebeests, monkeys, zebra, sables, etc. It was a great experience that taught me to think outside the box in my cases. Upon returning to the US I started working in general practice while pursuing my specialization in rehabilitation and medical based acupuncture. I received my rehabilitation degree through Canine Rehabilitation Institute, acupuncture certification through Colorado State University, and massage certification through International Academy of Medical Massage for Animals. I then pursued continuing education in pain management through Peak Performance and orthotics/prosthetics through Orthopets.

I transitioned from general practice to working as a rehabilitation veterinarian at one of the local rehab clinics. Shortly after starting I was promoted to medical director in which I developed a training program for all new doctors and technicians. I mentored for Canine Rehabilitation Institute and taught for Bel Rea Community College. While working as medical director I developed my vision for a dream practice. I dreamt of a practice that offered the latest medicine with some of the brightest doctors. A team trained to perform thorough exams and whom embodied the skill set to see some of the most challenging cases. A compassionate practice that could help many in need and give back to the community. I dreamt of working in Denver, one of the most pet friendly communities in the nation. In 2017 I decided to stop dreaming and make this practice a reality... Walking Paws Rehab- A place where we help pets get back on their paws! 

I welcome everyone to the practice. If you are looking for someone to help with your aging or injured pet please don’t hesitate to contact me.
