For many, a pet is someone’s best friend, whether it is a dog, cat, rabbit or pig a companion animal becomes a member of the family.

In a perfect world every story would have their furry sidekick filling each day with laughter and joy. But let’s face it, people get sick, and just like their walking, talking counterparts; animals get sick too. Luckily science has progressed and vets are able to offer treatments for these illnesses that weren’t available just a few years ago.

Did you know that animal care has become just as specialized as human care and that there are board certified doctors in arenas such as ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, cardiology and many more. Animals needing rehabilitation after surgery or a neurological event can benefit from therapy from a certified rehabilitation specialist. This page is designed to help you find resources for animals in need of specialized medical care or resources to help you with special needs animals.
