It has been reported that Central Oregon has the highest number of dogs per capita than any other location in the country. That, coupled with the athletic lifestyle of Central Oregon residents, makes the region an ideal location for a state-of-the art physical rehabilitation facility for dogs. As more and more people recognize the impact of pain and physical dysfunction in their own lives they begin to recognize that these also affect their pets’ lives says Kristin Wolter, CVT, CCRA, Physical Rehabilitation with Bend Veterinary Specialists and Pawsitive Strides Physical Rehabilitation.
The animal specialists offer our four legged family members advanced surgery, internal medicine and physical rehabilitation services.
Wolter has been working with local veterinarians and other pet businesses to increased the awareness of the many benefits physical rehabilitation offers. As in people, dogs can rupture their ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), suffer from chronic pain, become disabled or painful due to disc rupture, battle obesity and lose mobility as they age. It only seems natural that the same therapies recommended to people to treat these common conditions are now gaining popularity among veterinarians locally, and across the nation and globe.

The facility – housing thousands of servers handling huge volumes of network traffic for millions of clients – is the first data center built and owned by Facebook and is at the vanguard of the industry in terms of reduced environmental impact and energy use.
Facebook’s commitment to operating sustainably saw innovators within the organization vigorously pursue new technologies to create one of the most energy efficient facilities of its kind in the world, with the building likely qualifying for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification.
