Dr. Patti Schaefer is back on her feet

canisport logoDr. Patti Schaefer took a bit longer to get back to her vet practice than she had planned but she is finally back on the road to see her patients —just in time for the summer dog sport season. Patti is still recovering the stamina and strength you need do battle with the traffic in our area so her on-site clinics in Olympia, Tacoma and Kent have been limited in the number of returning clients she can see. Patti wanted me to pass along her heartfelt thanks at all the support the community sent her way as she recovered from her surgery to fix her broken hip.

Dr Patti’s availability at Family Dog Training Center in Kent is located on their website at  Email  with your first two choices to be put on the schedule.

For her Tacoma and Olympia availability contact Patti directly here:

Have you heard about Patti Schaefer?

Some of you have already heard thru the freestyle community and from old school agility folks as well as thru FaceBook that Dr Patti Schaefer has broken a hip. She is healing nicely but will not be able to get back to work for some time–she is a sports vet doing chiropractic, acupuncture and cold laser at various locations in Olympia, Tacoma and Kent.

Recently a GoFundMe account was set up to help her with all the bills that come when you are self employed and not on your feet for months (where the heck is that duck when you need him!!). Here is a link to the site and Patti’s story. The initial goal has been met but if you are just hearing about it please feel free to continue helping out. As Patti lets us know in her update, Seaquin is still boarding until she is STEADY on her feet and can bring him home. Then she has to be cleared to drive all over the countryside again!!
