I can’t even begin to thank VSMR enough! Penny has hip dysplasia at a young age. All she wanted to do was run and play without pain. Thanks to this amazing group of Professionals, she can! From the time you walk into the time you leave, everyone is fantastic. They care for your fur babies as if they were their own! Penny gets so excited when we pull up, and Katie comes out to take her for her therapy! They have done wonders! She is now able to play and be a happy dog without pain! Thank you for treating us like family!

VSMR has been instrumental in helping our corgi Eve deal with the effects of degenerative myelopathy.  VSMR assisted in fitting Eve with a cart and in formulating exercise programs for her. The underwater treadmill and massage helped her maintain movement for as long as possible. The staff at VSMR are all very knowledgeable and caring. Eve loves her appointments, and I have been very impressed with all of the services that Eve has received.
