Canine rehab from two convenient locations
We serve the Atlanta area from locations in Decatur and Lilburn.
PUP Rehabilitation and Conditioning provides canine therapy and conditioning services by a licensed physical therapist certified in canine rehabilitation. We can improve your pet's quality of life by treating movement impairments and disabilities due to injury, disease, a surgical procedure, neurological problems, arthritis, obesity, or age-related changes. We also offer conditioning programs for the well-pet or athlete to maximize performance, help with weight management, and improve fitness levels. We do fitting/recommending of adaptive equipment for dogs in need of assistance and also do puppy evaluations to get the young ones started on the right paw!
It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for Pup Rehabilitation and Conditioning, which is run by Shari, the owner and operator. Our dachshund, Adam, was a prior client, who suffered from IVDD. After his surgery, he needed to go to a rehabilitation and physical therapy center. We were very lucky to find Pup Rehabilitation and Conditioning center. Pup Rehabilitation and Conditioning offered the most wonderful care, specialized treatment for his recovery from surgery. From the very beginning, Shari explained how she was going to treat our Adam. Since Adam needed to begin his stay at the rehabilitation, Shari was wonderful in keeping us informed in Adam's progress. She would send us texts, videos, and provided any information we needed. We were lucky because Adam was walking within one week. Read More

Fisher is an agility dog. At the age of 9.5 he started acting old and had quite a bit of difficulty in getting over spread jumps. I attended a hands-on seminar with Shari for performance dogs. Wow, what an eye opener. Fisher had quite a bit of difficulty doing some of the exercises. He couldn't walk backwards over bars on the floor. So we made an appointment to visit Shari at her office.

After Zaza, our 4 pound delicious Maltese, who was 9 years old at the time, came through her operation on her spine at the Animal Medical Hospital in New York, she began therapy there. When it was time for us to go back to our winter home in Florida, we told them there that we would not go back to Florida unless they could find a physical therapist in Florida, near our residence, for Zaza. After researching, they discovered that Shari Sprague was close to our home in Naples and what was really propitious was that she trained the therapist at the Animal Medical Hospital. Well they were so terrific that we felt if Shari was as good as they were Zaza was in good hands. Read More

I am writing this on behalf of my little Westie wonder girl Courtney Jeanne... if she could type she would no doubt write it herself!
I cannot recommend Shari Sprague highly enough as she has been working wonders with Courtney Jeanne, my 9-year-old West Highland White Terrier, over the last several weeks. Shari's stellar knowledge and expertise of physical therapy is surpassed only by her obvious love for what she does. It is rare to see a person so perfectly suited to their chosen profession!

My 12 year old greyhound has LS disease and arthritis, which has been worsening over the past year or so. Shari suggested that rehab may help and so far I am very happy with his progress. He has much more energy and most importantly does not seem as painful. Shari has been very informative when teaching me how to do exercises at home and my dog absolutely loves her!

We met Shari Sprague January of 2014, when our 6 1/2 year-old beagle was diagnosed with FCE, Fibrocartilaginous Embolli, a common cause of paralysis in dogs. Shari came highly recommended by our veterinarian. She explained to our what we were dealing with. Shari spent over an hour and a half just observing our beagle on the first visit; on the floor, playing and stroking and encouraging our beloved Margaux. We would receive written exercises for our dog. Shari would call to check on her progress. Read More
Shari and PUP Rehab and Conditioning have been a godsend to me and my German Shepherd, Fox. I compete in agility and Fox has always been a high drive, easily over-aroused dog. After some initial qualifying runs we had a long streak of knocked bars and crazed runs. He is also accident prone and is no stranger to the cone of shame. When I found Shari last year Fox was limping and had a suspected knee or toe issue that a rehab vet in my previous state was trying to determine. Shari discovered his propensity for getting rotated pelvises and also some significant weakness and lack of proprioception in his rear end. Read More

I adopted a male, 1-year-old Chow Chow/Australian Shepherd mix back in May 2009.
I noticed a limp with his right rear leg and had him examined by our Vet, who recommended a follow up with Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Robin Holtsinger. Both his knees were weak, but not necessary for surgery. Eventually, in 2013, he tore his ACL and that did require surgery. His total recovery was slow. After 6 months he showed signs of still being in pain and we determined he needed to have his implant (which had already helped rebuild his ligaments) removed. After that second surgery, he rebounded quickly. Read More
