Founded by veterinarian, Dr. James St.Clair, in 2004 TopDog Health & Rehabilitation opened its doors as a local canine rehabilitation facility in central Connecticut. Over the years TopDog’s mission has been to provide essential and trusted educational material to pet owners whose dogs are either undergoing orthopedic surgery such as (TPLO – Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, TTA – Tibial Tuberocity Advancement, CCL– Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture or dog ACL surgery, MPL – Medial Patellar Luxation, FHO – Femoral Head Osteotomy, THR – Total Hip Replacement for dogs) or dogs that are suffering from age related or genetic joint health issues.
TopDog also provides instructional videos and support materials to help pet owners with a foundation of basic physical therapy principles that can be instrumental in helping their dogs recover and feel better.
TopDog Health & Rehabilitation is now recognized as the webs #1 Resource for Pet Owner Information about Dog Orthopedic Disease, Surgery and Rehabilitation.
In addition to education TopDog Health & Rehabilitation also serves as a central directory for canine rehabilitation facilities in the USA and a directory for board certified veterinary surgeons. TopDog always promotes and encourages pet owners to seek professional rehab services.
In 2009 TopDog Health & Rehabilitation began consulting with veterinary nutritionist and industry leaders in the world of animal supplements and developed a line of joint health supplements that would exceed expectations of pet owners and veterinarians.
GlycanAid® Maintenance Joint Health and GlycanAid® HA Advanced Joint Health supplements for dogs have since gone on to receive 5 star rated independent reviews and are growing in popularity as the leading joint health supplement in the marketplace.
In 2010, TopDog introduced Flexerna Omega® into the market as an Omega 3 solution for joint health. The primary active ingredient called Supernol® is the ultra-pure extracted oil from the green-lipped mussel of New Zealand, known to be one of the richest sources of ETA- eicosatetranoic acid on the planet. Recognizing some dogs dislike liquids added to their food, TopDog Health offers this natural anti-inflammatory in both liquid and capsule form.
As a true leader in the orthopedic field, TopDog strives to constantly innovate and create solutions for post-op, arthritic and aging dogs. So please check back for new product releases in the near future ranging from turmeric infused treats to natural hemp solutions.
