Where do TOPS clients come from?
Naturally, most of TOPS clients come from the greater Chicago area.  You may be surprised, however, at the number of clients that seek our services from out of state.  Here is a current map of the location of TOPS' US clients.  Not included below is the fact that we also have had clients from outside the US, including both Canada and Bermuda.


Why choose "TOPS"?
Dr. Laurie McCauley opened TOPS Vet Rehab's doors in August 1998 at a time when veterinary rehabilitation was practically unheard of.  Since that time, Dr. McCauley has become one of the world's more recognized names in veterinary rehabilitation, lecturing nationally and internationally on the topic, which may be why TOPS clients come from literally all over the country, and some from outside the country.  

If you choose TOPS, your dog will be evaluated by a licensed veterinarian, certified in both veterinary acupuncture and animal chiropractic. As well, the treatment plan will be developed and overseen by the veterinarian.  This is critical in the case of geriatric dogs, dogs with additional medical conditions, or simply for peace of mind. 

If you are looking for a veterinary rehabilitation center, we welcome you to call and get a chance to learn more about our services that the types of treatment options that may be able to help your pet.

Thought of the Day

"The only difference between success and failure is what we learn from them. A success that we don't learn from is simply a glorified failure. A failure we do learn from is ultimately a camouflaged success."

Meet Chloe. Chloe is a 7 year old FS Dachshund that presented to us 10 days post-operative L2-L3 hemilaminectomy for an acute intervertebral disc herniation. She was non-ambulatory with no deep pain or voluntary motion in her hind legs and was urinary and fecally incontinent.. See the entire article by clicking here.

"Without TOPS I do not feel that I would still have my pet with me today.  Dr. McCauley is a miracle worker."

TOPS' Hydro-Treadmill First in the World for Canine use

When TOPS built it's pool and installed the world's first hydro-treadmill used specifically for dogs, we were sure it would be a big part of our rehab treatments. We just didn't know how big. In fact, when we expanded our facility in 2002, we included two underwater treadmills to keep up with the demand, which have been used over 6000 times since the first one was installed.  These treadmills have played an enormous part in the success of each of our Walk of Fame cases. Numerous other facilities around the country have bought or are in the process of buying a treadmill. We're glad to see that more and more dogs across the country will be able to benefit from this type of therapy.
