Stephanie Bonner ...
I have been a small animal veterinarian since 2004. I first saw a pet prosthetic while at a conference overseas in 2008. I was amazed at how they were helping our furry patients and have been interested in rehabilitation ever since.
In 2014, I completed my post-graduate training and have the qualification of Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) in the U.S. I am a member of the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians (AARV).
I actively continue my education in this exciting field of veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation. This includes completing the Western Acupuncture foundation course with Dr Sam Lindley, sports medicine with Dr Chris Zink and the Australian veterinary conference in 2016 featuring Dr Darryl Millis as a keynote speaker. I was also fortunate enough to visit Fitzpatrick’s referral rehabilitation centre in the UK where they create the TV series - UK Bionic vet and the STAAR symposium in 2017 and 2019.
In 2021, we welcomed our daughter into the family and made the difficult decision to close Red Dog Rehabilitation consults temporarily. I look forward to helping you and your pet regain mobility with our products available online.
