As a PT practicing for over 37 years I have seen so many incredible cases of injured animals…be it a cat, a dog, or a horse that have benefited from rehab. Some of those animals have even then inspired their owners to then overcome a knee replacement or major injuries.
Not only do I see the physical changes in the animal that occur during recovery from the physical ailment, but I also see that when a person invests themselves in the lives of something or someone else, we grow in love, compassion, and understanding. A very wise person once said,
“It is not what I get or have in life that is important, but how I can grow by giving of myself to others be it a person or animal”.
