“Look at me go! Do I love walking on this land treadmill. It has helped correct my gait and build strength in my back legs. When I started suffering from age related neurological deficits, walking became a problem. Becky helped re-educate my muscles and build strength so I could walk again and relatively pain free. I did lots of activities at Motiv, like Swim Therapy and the Physioball. They helped a lot too. For me though, give me that Land Treadmill, and I will walk forever.” - Pepper
All therapy services are performed with the supervision of a California licensed veterinarian.
