ABOUT US

PROVIDING POST-OP CARE AND REHABILITATION FOR WINNIPEG PETS

Winnipeg-based Head to Tail Pet Rehabilitation is a pet rehabilitation centre offering physical rehabilitation services for cats and dogs. Through the care, compassion, and professionalism of our staff, we promote the comfort and wellbeing of pets — as well as their human companion’s peace of mind.

 

With a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) on staff, we rehabilitate pets following orthopedic surgery, injury, arthritis, neurological diseases, obesity, and age-related complications. To promote faster healing and rehabilitation, some equipment is used at our centre, including an H2O Fitness Oasis treadmill and Class IV laser. 

 

As pet owners we understand how much your pet means to you. We take the time to answer your questions and provide details on the expected duration and outcome of your pet’s physical rehabilitation therapies.

Were you referred to Head to Tail Pet Rehabilitation by your veterinarian? We can answer any questions you may have about the rehabilitation process, as well as plan for your pet’s post-surgical care. To have your questions answered, call Head to Tail Pet Rehabilitation at any time.

KAITLYNN COOPER

RVT, CCRP

CEO, Clinic Manager

Kaitlynn graduated as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) from Seneca College, King City, Ontario in 2013 and moved to Winnipeg in 2014. With a special interest in orthopedic surgery and post-operative physical rehabilitation,  Kaitlynn decided to further her education and enrolled in the University of Tennessee's Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) program, she graduated in 2017. 

 

Kaitlynn's very first patient was her dog 'Moose', a happy-go-lucky Landseer Newfoundland who suffered from bilateral degenerative cruciate ligament disease. Two surgeries and an intensive post-operative rehabilitation program later, Moose was able to join his siblings and friends on outdoor adventures and enjoy his life to the fullest.  While Moose is no longer with us, his memory lives on.

DR. TRICIA BALL

DVM, CCRP, CVA

Dr. Ball graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in 2014. In her fourth year at the WCVM, she adopted a young border collie named Bella, who had been hit by a truck requiring surgery and extensive physical rehabilitation. She recovered, and at almost 12 years old, she is still very active and thriving. Seeing what a difference rehab made in Bella's recovery led to her developing a keen interest in rehab and, later, acupuncture.

 

Dr. Ball graduated from the University of Tennessee's Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) program in 2016. She graduated from the Chi Institute as a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist in 2017.
