The Most Common Question We Get: “My Dog is Afraid of Water!”

“My dog is terrified of the water and I’m worried about water therapy.”
Rest assured. Paradise Canine Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine water therapy program was specifically developed to accommodate water-terrified dogs. Because their feet are on the ground most dogs get comfortable very quickly.

If you would like to stop by and visit in order to see for yourself, please just let us know.

SKY WON…WHAT DO YOU THINK?

For the second year in a row, a Wire Fox Terrier won the National Dog Show Presented by Purina during the annual Kennel Club of Philadelphia cluster at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. GCH Afterall Painting the Sky, was selected by Best In Show Judge Vicki Abbott from among more than 1,500 canines. “Sky” won the Terrier Group and then bested an Affenpinscher, an American Foxhound, a Great Dane, a Tibetan Spaniel, a Bearded Collie and a Field Spaniel during Best In Show. It is the first time that the same breed has won Best In Show at a major competition since an English Springer Spaniel won Westminster in 1971 and 1972.

Handler Gabriel Rangel of Rialto, Calif., has now won the National Dog Show three of the last four years with the Scottish Terrier, Sadie, in 2009, and the two Wire Fox Terriers – Eira in 2011, and now Sky.

Do you Know the Difference between a DVM and a VMD Degree in Veterinarians?

The Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree is only awarded to veterinarians by the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA. It is equivalent to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree awarded by all other US veterinary schools. The difference stems from the origin of the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine as the Veterinary Department of the Medical School. As the Medical School awarded the Medicinae Doctoris (MD) degree to graduate physicians, it was consistent to use a similar Latin format for the veterinary degree. With a similar origin, the Penn School of Dental Medicine awards the Dentariae Medicinae Doctoris (DMD) to dentists.
