Frequently Asked Questions

Why we are so passionate about helping pets with Degenerative Myelopathy

In loving memory of our Tova 💕

Two decades ago our beautiful girl, "Tova", was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy. Back then, even as trained veterinarians, we knew very little about what we could do to help her through this horrible disease. Our desperate search for knowledge and solutions lead us down the path of seeking to learn more the disease and how rehabilitative medicine could possibly help slow down its progression.

Our Canine Rehab On Demand at-home rehabilitation programs were created for this purpose. We wanted to share our extensive research of information with others to provide the latest resources, tools, and knowledge to help you and your pet navigate your way through Degenerative Myelopathy.

We are passionate about helping others who are dealing with a pet with Degenerative Myelopathy, so you don't have to go through what we went through. This program will assist you through the challenges you will inevitably face, and hopefully, will give you and your pet a richer quality of life together.
