Client Testimonials

I want to thank Dr Catherine and her staff , for the wonderful way they have treated Sprocket and myself. We have a 2 hour drive to get here and they are very accommodating. (Well worth the drive) Sprocket is a 8 year old Schnauzer cross dog that tore his CCL. I was looking for an alternative to surgery when I was refereed to Canine & Veterinary Rehab Centre. Dr Catherine fitted Sprocket with a knee brace 3 weeks ago. Sprocket hasn’t looked back since. He is doing wonderful, we are back to doing 2 short walks a day and he is one happy puppy which makes me happy.

Peanut and I are forever grateful for the work everyone does here! He is always so excited to come for therapy and see his “friends” Meagan, Austin and Dr. Catherine. Peanut continues to grow stronger each day and his quality of life since his injury in March has been steadily increasing.
I am so glad I entrusted his care with everyone at this amazing clinic. Thank you for making our lives better and mobile again!

We love the team at Canine Aquafitness! They were incredibly helpful when our dog suffered from Degenerative Myelopathy. He loved going for his treatments and Dr. Catherine was very patient and gentle with him. We can not recommend them enough! They are a compassionate and knowledgeable group. Your dog will thank you for taking them here!

Great caring staff who are helping my furbaby gain his mobility back. Their knowledge and compassion go above and beyond. We would highly recommend them.

Dr. Catherine and the staff are very compassionate and helpful. Maestro really enjoyed and benefitted from the aquatherapy, massage, and physio after he was diagnosed with IVDD and osteoarthritis. Although Maestro has crossed Rainbow Bridge, I still keep up with the massage techniques on family and friends’ dogs. Maestro wouldn’t want me to get rusty.

Rhona-Mae Arca (Dec, 2017)

The entire staff at Canine Aquafitness is very friendly. From the moment you walk through the door they make worried pet owners and injured pets feel at ease, comfortable and that there is hope for recovery. My dog gets very stressed and shakes the whole time we are at the regular vet, but when we go to Canine Aquafitness she is at ease and walks around happily greeting the staff and requesting treats. There are similar treatment centers in Cochrane and Calgary, but I make the drive from Cochrane to Okotoks because I have had such a positive experience with Dr. Catherine and her staff and she has done an amazing job with my little Sasha on her road to recovery.

Calida¬†L (Sep, 2017)

I just wanted to say a giant THANK YOU to Dr. Catherine and all the staff at Canine Aquafitness. They have helped our pets tremendously and I can’t say enough great things about them. I first brought a foster dog to Dr. Catherine about 18 months ago. She could barely stand and had difficulty walking. After one month of treatment the results were unbelievable… not only can Taco walk, she runs! Everywhere! She is doing better than we could have ever imagined. Recently we brought in our miniature schnauzer Madi… An x-ray revealed a narrowing between 2 vertebrae and we wanted Dr. Catherine to assess her. Madi received 2 chiropractic treatments and she is a completely different dog! We have an 8 yr old puppy now! I am so happy to see my dog feel so good. I cannot express my sincere gratitude for all you do for our fur babies. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

There is no one like Dr. Catherine. She is so amazing, kind and gentle. There will be a special place in heaven for this wonderful lady. She has given so many of our furry friends a new lease on life and extended their stay for owners and animals. She goes above and beyond everyday. We thank you from the bottom of our heart. We love you. It has been a pleasure to have met you and thank you for all you do for everyone.

Cliff & Marlene N (Jan, 2017)

We first started with Dr. Pampiglione and Canine Aquafitness over a year ago. At that time we had two senior dogs with different problems. We were specifically seeking help with our Yellow Lab/Brittany Spaniel mix and her limp. Wit Dr. Pampiglione’s help we were able to reduce her limp and identify a bone spur on her shoulder. Dr. Pampiglione then began laser treatment on her shoulder and hips (she also has arthritis in her hips), which showed a dramatic improvement in her movement and comfort. Being a senior dog it is likely that she will have to live with some discomfort for the rest of her life, but the relief that Canine Aquafitness and Dr. Pampiglione has brought, and continues to bring to our girl, is a great comfort to us. We owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Pampiglione and to the staff of Canine Aquafitness that can never be repaid, and we highly recommend that pet owners of all stripes consider availing themselves of their services to speed healing and bring relief to their ailing pets! Thank you Dr. Catherine for being such an important part of our lives and particularly in the life of our dog, Abbey.
