Helping senior pets improve their strength and mobility so they can continue having adventures without skipping a step
We are so happy you found us! Here at Madison Canine Rehab & Acupuncture, we understand that our dogs (and cats!) are more than just pets. We believe they are part of our families and constant companions on our day to day adventures. We also understand that our pets experience many of the same aches and pains that we do. They tear their ACL (or CCL as we call it in our four-legged patients), they experience back injuries, they develop arthritis, and they, too, often experience a decrease in their overall strength and mobility as they get older. Unfortunately, however, conventional medicine often falls short in providing owners and their pets the tools they needs most. Medications can be a great start, but we understand owners who want to do more for their pets. So whether your normally very active Labrador is recovering from knee surgery, your senior dog is having a harder time getting into or out of the car, or your hiking buddy is getting more stiff and sore after normal weekend adventures, we are here for you! At Madison Canine Rehab & Acupuncture, we come to you! We will work with you to identify your pet's specific problems, establish goals for getting your pet back to doing their normal activities, and educate you, their person, on how to best support them at home. It is our goal to help your pet improve their strength and mobility so they can continue to join you in life's adventures without skipping a step!
Certified Canine Rehabilitation Veterinary Nurse
Beth graduated from Madison College in 2001 as a Certified Veterinary Technician and worked in general practice until 2007. At that point in her career, she wanted to specialize in something, but wasn’t sure in what. She had been thinking about going back to school to become a physical therapy assistant for people when learned about the Canine Rehabilitation Institute (CRI). After graduating from the CRI program in 2008, she started her career in canine physical rehabilitation and couldn’t be any happier. She joined Dr. Gleason at Madison Canine Rehab & Acupuncture in April 2023 and is a great asset to the team with her skill set and many years of experience.
Beth has two Cavalier mixes at home that keep her busy. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoor, especially camping, hiking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
KELSEY GLEASON, DVM
Dr. Gleason grew up in the Madison Area. She received her undergraduate degree and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Upon completion, she worked in general practice around the Madison area. She eventually realized her true passion was working with senior pets and pets recovering from complicated injuries and surgeries, as well as the dedicated owners that cared for them. Dr. Gleason became certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2018 through the Chi Institute and completed her canine rehabilitation certification in 2020 through the University of Tennessee. While not seeing patients, Dr. Gleason enjoys hiking, traveling, cross country skiing, and spending time with her family.
