About Elizabeth Wade, VMD, CCRT

Dr. Wade received her doctorate degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. After graduation, she worked for several years in veterinary emergency rooms. Through her experiences with her own beloved Rottweiler dogs, she decided to focus on animal rehabilitation. She received training and certification in canine rehabilitation from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute.

Dr. Wade has extensive experience with pets with various physiological issues, including two of her five dogs that have required back, neck and knee surgeries. She now realizes how much better they would have done if they had access to quality rehabilitative care before and
after surgery.

Athena and Annabelle were sisters that Dr. Wade had for 9 and 11 years respectively. They were her first dogs raised from puppies. They were very special dogs and the inspiration behind the pathway change in her veterinary career. Gryffin came along to keep Annabelle company after the passing of her sister. He had a rough first couple of weeks spending most of that time in the hospital. But he has been a blessing, and a good model for getting Dr. Wade through the rehabilitation classes. He is both food and toy motivated, a good quality to have in a rehabilitation patient. He has a great attitude and will try anything he is asked to do.
