The S.A.M. System

It’s not over….  it’s just different

Having a pet with a chronic and/or progressive condition that affects their ability to be an active family member, can leave you feeling helpless.

But…. It doesn’t have to.

We created a simple 3 pillar framework to help you help your dog ❤️

Sarah  is an inspired pet parent,  physiotherapist, and canine rehab therapist.  Her inspiration comes from her dogs, especially her white German Shepard, Sammie.

Sam & Sarah💖

Sammie tore cruciates in her knees in 2012/2013.  She began to have some rear weakness in 2015 followed by a back injury and  was diagnosed with spinal arthritis.  In 2016, it was determined that Sam had degenerative myelopathy (DM).  DM is a slow progressive spinal cord disease that leads to paralysis 

Sarah’s desire to help other pet parent’s face what feels like insurmountable odds with their dogs ability to be active and enjoy life, comes from her knowledge, experience, and heart as both a therapist and a dog mom with a dog that has had all odds against her.
