Healing Hands 4 Paws
Healing Hands 4 Paws was created for a new generation of needs in the pet community — a desire for a higher quality of life and more active lifestyle for pets who have experienced injuries, and those who have entered their senior years.
Dr. Dexter Archer founded Healing Hands 4 Paws in 2013 after seeing the difference rehabilitation and physical therapy made in the recovery of orthopedic surgery patients. One of the most memorable cases was Casey, a two-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who had been hit by a car. She suffered multiple hip fractures, which left her unable to use her left hind leg and in constant pain.
Within 4 weeks Casey became a normal functioning dog. With the help of our staff at Healing Hands 4 Paws, she regained her muscle strength and was back to her normal happy self again.

I bring my dog Balto to Healing Hands 4 Paws. Dr. Archer, Cath and staff are professional and very passionate about helping all the animals in their care. Healing Hands 4 Paws has given Balto a better quality of life and he has been thriving within the first few weeks of laser therapy, hydro therapy, treadmill and physical therapy. Balto even gets so excited when we enter the parking lot because he knows Cath and Dr. Archer are going to take away his pain. I highly recommend Healing Hands 4 Paws. There is no place that compares or that I feel safe with treating my dog.
We brought our 9 year old lab Elvis directly to Healing Hands 4 Paws after having bilateral TPLO surgery to be admitted for 2 weeks of post op and rehab. From the moment we were greeted by Dr. Archer and his staff we knew he was in excellent hands. We decided to continue outpatient rehab for Elvis to give him the best chance of a great recovery. He received exceptional care and a beautiful outcome with the help of Dr. Archer and Kat his wonderful rehab assistant.
Cannot say enough good things about the staff, especially Cat and Dr. Archer. They were so helpful, empathetic and understanding of me and my pup; I have a 7 year old Dalmatian who was recently diagnosed with Wobblers syndrome. Initially, the surgeon wanted to do surgery, without really telling me what she wanted to operate on expect that he had spinal compression. My primary vet told me about healing hands because I was apprehensive about and I'm so happy I took this route. Cole, my baby, is doing 100% better; I see both a physical improvement and one in his overall mood and wellbeing. I have to especially thank Cat, who primarily works with my dog because while he is the sweetest dog, he's also the most anxious and really only listens and works with his momma. Now, he only works with her lol. Between PT and the acupuncture, I think Cole is doing better now than he would have had I chosen to put him through surgery and I'm so glad my boy is better :)
