Default Recommended Sports Vets in the New England Area

So I'm probably being a little over cautious but I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for a sports vet (focus on lameness).

He came up lame after hiking yesterday (fine immediately after the hike but not after the car ride home which was 1 1/2 hours and not this morning either). We live a pretty high impact lifestyle so I'd rather seek professional help from the get-go.

I'm willing to drive pretty far for a great vet, so while preference is given to Long Island/CT vets... I'll go as far South as mid-PA and as North as the Canadian border pretty much. East & West I'd like to keep in line with 87 in NY and the Eastern NH border.

Any recommendations?

I am going to see an ortho/rehab vet next week with Gusto. She came well recommended as a vet, is a serious agility competitor herself, and the hospital seems to have all the diagnostic toys. Located outside Boston. I can let you know what I thought after we see her.

That would be great, thank you.

The worst case scenarios are all flooding through my mind right now, it's actually quite frightening. :-/

Tell me about it. I nearly worked myself into an anxiety attack about Gusto at work last week.

I don't know where anything actually is out east though...

And, not that I've been there. But they do what we do at work.

So that place is a bit farther south than I'd like to travel, as that while area is just a nightmare to travel through. Not off the list, just that I'd rather drive the 5 hours north than that way.

So in CT, I found this place: http://www.squibnocketanimalcenter.c...l#.VA5eEYl5mc0

They seem to offer a lot plus the guy is a DVM. I've seen a lot of rehab/physical therapy places that don't have a DVM. Thoughts?

I wouldn't go to a rehab place that doesn't have a DVM. I haven't heard of the place you linked to but I'm looking at it now.

I have heard wonderful things about Wizard of Paws. For my issues with Gusto, I really want a vet diagnosis first, but I wouldn't hesitate to go there for rehab after, if it were closer to me
