About the Author
I have developed the guidelines in this book for use in my mobile animal rehabilitation practice so that I and/or pet caretakers may practice them in the home or any other environment conducive to the work (clinic, barn, quiet park, mountaintop...) in order to rehab their pets after injury and/or surgery. No special tools or equipment are needed for the majority of the exercises and drills I utilize on a daily basis and present in this book, my having taught countless others to utilize them as well. I have a Twitter & an IG account, and a presence on LinkedIn, Goodreads, & YouTube. I randomly post super important info or pictures of animals trying to enjoy rehab. For more info, please see www.rehabdeb.com. Thanks! --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Good bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2020
Good book, however didn't fully read as my dog ended up having surgery and following vets specific advice

Deborah Carroll provides effective exercises for physical therapy that are non-invasive and can be done at home with successful outcomes. This is a great introduction book that explains the physical therapy instead of surgery route and what it means for you and your pet. These guidelines and exercises are a way of treating a torn ligament that works as long as you and your pet are ready to take the time to achieve results. Surgery is not always inevitable and Deborah Carroll provides an alternative. My dog has followed these guidelines and has had great results. At the time of her injury she could not walk on her back leg (torn ACL, meniscus). Through working with the support of our veterinarian for pain management, the physical therapy and suggested diet changes, she not only walks on all her legs again, she can go for long walks, climb hills and stairs and pull me down the sidewalk. We are proof that you can successfully rehab your pet at home without the trauma and recovery of surgery.

Awesome help for CCL tear injuryReviewed in the United States on 8 March 2014
I chose not to have my 9 year old Lab put through the stress of surgery on his torn CCL - knowing that he is already showing signs of the other leg being injured. After much research, I found Deborah's website and read a lot of the blog posts where I learned of her book. I have been using the therapy in the book now for about a month and it is working well in conjunction with some holistic remedies and massage, Since the process of healing is really the same for both non-surgery and surgery dogs, this book will help either way! Easy to follow, but you do have to stick with it to see results.

Got our old dog's knee back up to snuffReviewed in the United States on 2 October 2016
When our 10-year-old lab mix busted his knee, he was in rough shape and only narrowly avoided surgery. Luckily, we found Deb and got the opportunity to work with her in person. She had us read her book before our first meeting. The book itself is in invaluable. It's a short read, but it lays out a basic plan with lots of explanation and support for each technique. The combined force of the book and Deb's physical therapy sessions healed our pup more than we thought possible, especially given his age. The program does take work, but the results really are extraordinary. Whether you can work with Deb in person or not, this book is a must if you have a dog in recovery.

This book saved our lives and our wallets!Reviewed in the United States on 5 February 2016
This book saved me!! My vet referred me to Deborah Carroll. I read her book and followed the weekly program and my Pearl is walking like she never had an injury! Right after Thanksgiving last year Pearl, my miniature poodle, blew out both her back knees. It was awful. I had to carry her everywhere. I live alone so it all fell on my back, literally. I have a bad back and because of lifting her constantly, I kept throwing my own back out. I looked into buying her braces and was so close to buying 2 of them or doing the surgery when my vet recommended Deb Carroll. I got on her website, heard about her book, bought it, and read it and started the program the next day. Pearl made HUGE progress very quickly. You have to be very very patience with your dog during this process. These walks are very boring for everyone involved. :) I brought my headphones and decided to make good use of my time and started teaching myself Spanish again! Make the best of your time on these walks and the situation all together. It was so great watching Pearl get better and better everyday. IF anyone has any questions about the program or the book, feel free to message me on here. I have nothing but positive things to say! TOTAL LIFESAVOR.
