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!
I was very fortunate to be referred to Shari by my vet after Courtney Jeanne had injured her left rear leg. My girl was diagnosed with a torn cruciate ligament and put on strict rest with the possibility of having knee surgery should she not recover. The mere mention of surgery was enough to make this overprotective pet parent very concerned, so giving physical therapy a try was a must!
Shari developed an instant rapport with Courtney Jeanne, which is no minor accomplishment as Courtney Jeanne is the very definition of Mommy’s girl! Seeing her take to Shari made pursuing PT so much easier because I had absolutely no qualms leaving Courtney Jeanne in her care. Shari took the time to evaluate and diagnose Courtney Jeanne’s situation and developed a rehabilitation plan just for her. The care that she takes in treating her patients is truly remarkable and very reassuring. And the results that she gets are indicative of her both her experience and unique ability to understand her patient’s needs. I think this is truly amazing since those entrusted to her care cannot just tell her what is bothering them and yet somehow Shari gets to exactly what is causing the problem!
After each session with Shari Courtney Jeanne literally prances out to the car. You can absolutely see the positive results of the day’s physical therapy and the progress that is being made. This is how I know that Shari will be the one to get Courtney Jeanne back to being queen of the dog park aka chasing balls at thoroughbred speed with her sister trying to catch her! And this is why I will not trust Courtney Jeanne’s recovery to anyone else. After Shari the bar has quite simply been set too high!
Thank you so much Shari!
