Town East-Galloway Animal Clinic (TEGAC) is a full service animal hospital. It was founded by Drs. Joe and Michelle Quinn in 1991. They are graduates of Oklahoma State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2015, Michelle Quinn, DVM (aka. "Dr. Chelly") earned her certification as a Canine Rehabilitation Therapists through CRI in Florida.
At TEGAC our belief is - just as in human medicine - rehabilitation from an injury and orthopedic surgery plays a huge role in the proper recovery of your pet. In that aspect, this is similar to physical therapy. Many conditioning and therapeutic techniques are helpful for dogs with chronic conditions such as arthritis, cranial cruciate ligament injuries, hip dysplasia, intervertebral disc disease, and arthritis, just to name a few.
