Maria Rideout, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP)
Maria is from Newfoundland and Labrador and excited to be back working in the province, offering her extensive experience to VSC clients. Maria recently received her certification in canine rehabilitation therapy through the University of Tennessee. Maria works with post-op orthopaedic and neuro clients to build strength, prevent future injury, and maintain/build sensation.
With her background in human Occupational Therapy Maria focuses on client function in daily activities and quality of life. She tailors her programs to address the uniqueness of each individual patient. Maria also works closely with the veterinarians at VSC and “pawrents" to ensure priorities are clear, goals are being met, and most importantly that patients are having fun!
When she’s not taking care of other people’s pets, she snuggles her golden retriever, Sunny and rescue cat, Cher.
