“When Otis began physical therapy to treat biceps strains and arthritis, he was lethargic and depressed. We saw improvement in his mobility and attitude after just a few visits. After working with Dr. Fein and her staff consistently for several weeks, we were able to get Otis to a place where he was happy and active again. Otis is a senior, and the change in his quality of life for the better has been dramatic.”
They showed me exercises and stretches to do with Laverne, helped me fit her into her wheelchair, given her laser therapy and acupuncture (and man does she try to dodge those needles), recommended equipment and herbs, referred me to other rehab centers when Laverne’s needs were beyond what they offer, and worked around my tight budget making sure Laverne sees whoever is most important at the time even if that’s not always them. Laverne is now walking without her wheelchair, granted it’s wobbly and short-lived, but she’s getting better every day. They both always tell me what a great job I’m doing with her, but the truth is I credit Laverne’s success to her own hard work and the help of Dr. Fein and Karen. I’m certain I wouldn’t have been able to do this without them, their kindness and expertise has been crucial to Laverne’s success and my sanity.”

Dr. Fein developed at home exercise programs that complimented the work being performed during clinical sessions yet was easy enough for my husband and I to fit into our busy schedules allowing us to be consistent with his at home treatment plan. Colby absolutely loved his sessions with Dr. Fein, it was so heartwarming to see how excited he got every time he saw her! Colby’s rehabilitation treatment allowed him into his late years to continue going on walks and little hikes with us and enjoy some of his favorite activities like playing tug of war and ball in the yard or flopping down to roll around in the snow like he did as a young guy! The contrast of Colby’s physical abilities to other dogs of his age (12 yrs.) and size was just astonishing. So many senior dogs struggle with simple things like walking in their yards or chasing a ball just a few feet, but our Colby could run circles around them and I know it’s because of the years of rehabilitation treatment he received from Dr. Fein!
I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Fein and her team. Not only did Dr. Fein offer outstanding physical rehabilitation for many years she also consulted with us as Colby aged and battled cancer. She built a custom treatment plan that included Chinese Veterinary Medicine and acupuncture which absolutely improved his quality of life and in my opinion allowed him to be part of our family much longer than had we not incorporated it into his treatment plan. Dr. Karyn Fein is an extremely kind and compassionate person and a very knowledgeable veterinarian, always continuing to expand her knowledge and explore new technologies that can help your furry family member live a healthier, happier life!”
“Our dog, Lily, was diagnosed with a severe fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE). No one could tell us how much mobility she might regain, and we started working with RMVR a few days later. She had almost no feeling in her hind legs and couldn’t even bend them – they were rigid and she was fully incontinent. After each RMVR session, Lily would make a little bit of progress! Dr. Fein was great about teaching us different PT treatments we could do at home based on where Lily was at in her recovery. We started small by getting Lily to have more feeling in her back toes. At that point in treatment, Lily could not go from a laying down/sitting position to standing on her own. Dr. Fein taught us how to position Lily’s back legs with the right posture to teach Lily how to stand up again. Lily went from having almost no mobility in her hind legs to being able to jog in our backyard like a normal dog again! Hands down, RMVR saved Lily’s life.“
