5.0 out of 5 stars This edition is a major upgrade March 9, 2014
Finally I feel like I can consult a book that will give the normal and the pathological progression in a scientific manner that describes what I am seeing in my patients. This helps me understand the cause of the pathology that need rehabilitation. The book also has suggested therapies with details on the science of physical therapy. It makes it easy to establish a differential diagnosis, a differential cause list, and potential non harmful therapy methods. I am excited about having this much information in one reference as I am trying to find the best options for my patients. It also describes various medications that have been tried in these cases. Kudos to the authors for such a practical tool to benefit practicing veterinarians, pet owners, vet students, and anyone trying to bring the benefits of physical therapy to our animal friends.

Excellent reference in canine rehabilitation. Well organized chapters and subjects. Best all around reference out there that includes all aspects and subjects of canine rehabilitation. If you must have one rehab book in your shelf, this is it. Companion site has excellent videos showing exercises and forms for the initial and daily evaluation of rehab patient. Congratulations to the authors and all the contributors, it was worth to wait for this book.
