To My Critter Doctor Clients:
After 22 years at Critter Doctor Animal Hospital, I have decided it’s time for me to move on. I am grateful to have been part of your and your pets’ lives these past many years. Helping your furry friends stay healthy so that you may enjoy the love and happiness they bring you is at the core of why I became a veterinarian 30 (gulp!) years ago.
I will continue to offer canine (and occasionally feline!) rehabilitation services right next door to Critter Doctor at Go Dog Go Canine Rehab should your pet need some help recovering from orthopedic surgical procedures or be struggling with arthritis and/or other mobility issues. Come by and visit any time or check out my new website at GoDogGoRehab.com

Canine Rehab in Kirkland, WA
Dr. Wendy Bernstein, a graduate of U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, has been a practicing veterinarian in Kirkland, Washington for over 20 years.
She has always advocated for her patients and is passionate about offering the highest quality medicine and care available.
That's why, in 2016, she decided she needed another "therapeutic arrow" in her quiver and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT). She completed an intensive certification process with the Canine Rehabilitation Institute (CRI), one of only two schools in the country to offer comprehensive training in canine rehab therapy.
“I found that, despite all my best efforts, I was unable to help some of my patients. They would still struggle with back and joint pain even after I had provided the 'latest and greatest' treatments conventional veterinary medicine had to offer. I found myself wondering if there was anything else I could do for these pets. That sent me on a search that eventually led me to canine rehabilitation therapy.
The more I learned and the more I saw what it could do for injured and elderly pets, the more convinced I became that this therapy was what my patients needed."
Now she successfully uses pet rehab therapy to help her patients regain mobility, function, strength and overall quality of life.
