April’s Obsession

Schedule A Meet & Greet


Rover-Time loves Integrative Pet CareThis incredible clinic is changing the lives of many animals with rehabilitation, canine hydrotherapy, and holistic wellness. Each year the center helps nearly 1,000 pets recover from injury or surgery, while helping to manage their pain and prevent future occurrences by integrating traditional and holistic veterinary methods. The facility features state-of-the-art therapeutic equipment designed specifically for animal rehab and exercise and a team of practitioners trained specifically in canine rehabilitation, most of whom have been certified by the Canine Rehabilitation Institute or University of Tennessee.

In late March, I had the opportunity to connect with Dr. Rosemary LoGiudice. Her passion and dedication for the work seeped through each answer she gave me and I grew more and more fond of this wonderful place as chatted. For the first 20 years of her career her practice was focused on horses. Her desire to help companion animals realize an improved quality of life inspired her to receive her certification in canine rehabilitation therapy from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. 

The medical staff at IPC includes four veterinarians and six animal rehab therapists, all committed to the well being of every animal with whom they work. Dr. LoGiudice appreciates the collaborative spirit this team creates through the various perspectives gained from each person. She compared it to having many several good tools in the toolbox instead of only one to fix the problem.

Many wonderful moments are created at Integrative Pet Care. I wondered how a pet owner’s attitude changes throughout their animal’s treatment plan and Dr. LoGiudice shared her thoughts. “It often depends on the problem that the pet comes in with. For example, a dog with a neurological problem or a back problem can take a huge toll on the owner because the pet becomes fully dependent on that human for every need. Over time, with the right treatment plan, we’ve seen owners change from distraught to overjoyed. It’s really something to give an animal and their owner some continued quality of life together.”

Integrative Pet Care does a lot of work with and for the animal community. It has a strong relationship with the Trio Animal Foundation and it’s looking forward to participating in the Anti-Cruelty Society’s Bark in the Park event May 5th. You can find additional information on their website and follow IPC on their Facebook and Twitter page.
