Canine Rehabilitation Clinic Information Page

Dr-Faith-Lotsikas-683x1024Oriole is pleased to host Dr. Faith Lotsikas, DVM, CCRT.  She  provides canine rehabilitation / bodywork by appointment only at the Oriole Dog Training Club on the third Wednesday of every month.

Therapies offered include various manual techniques for the spine and soft tissues, Class IV Laser, Therapeutic Ultrasound, Phonophoresis, and TENS. Sessions typically begin with a very detailed thorough exam of your dog head to tail to identify any problem areas as well as gain a sense of your dogs general condition. Therapies may include the modalities of laser and/or ultrasound first, followed with manual work using hands. Part of the sessions often require time dedicated to teaching techniques or exercises that will become ‘homework’. Exercise and fitness plans are tailored per your dog, and will be sent to you at a later date to allow time to customize the plan(s) and make sure they suit our intended goals. They are included in the fee for the consultation.

Please contact Dr. Lotsikas (faithfulpawsvet@gmail.com) directly to schedule an appointment.  Note that it is helpful and advised to provide radiographs of any recently taken, medical notes from any surgeries or injuries, and lab work ahead of time. There will be a brief questionnaire for you about your dogs health and exercise, supplements, and your expectations.

Dr. Faith is also available for consultations and rehabilitation in Ellicott City at her hospital location, Skylos Sports Medicine (SkylosSportsMedicine.com) if your canine companion needs to be seen prior to an upcoming Oriole Clinic Date.

Next clinic dates are:

  • Wednesday, August 17, 2016  (location is at Skylos for this month)
  • Wednesday, September 21, 2016
  • Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Come and Sit. Stay and Play.
