Clarification: DIY physical therapy for patients with patella and cruciate injuries
In the article "DIY physical therapy for patients with patella and cruciate injuries" in the December 2013 issue, we should not have used the term physical therapy to apply to veterinary patients since this term is only applicable to licensed physical therapy professionals and usually only used for human patients. Instead, we should have used the term veterinary rehabilitation.
We apologize for any confusion this error may have caused. And we thank Janet Van Dyke, DVM, DACVSMR, president of the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians, for pointing out the error.
