Healing Tails is Unique!

If you're researching animal physical rehabilitation clinics in Chicago, you have probably found that there are only a handful of options.

May other clinics offer a consultation by the doctor and the follow up treatments are performed by a technician or assistant who may or may be certified in animal rehabilitation. Your pet will receive the best care possible at Healing Tails and have a team of doctors guiding you and your pet through every step of their treatment!

How Healing Tails Will Help


We know finding the right help for your pet can sometimes be a frustrating experience. Perhaps you've had a difficult time getting an appointment have your pet seen for your concerns. You may have waited weeks for the visit only to feel that you did really get to the root cause of your pet's pain and symptoms. We know that no two dogs or pet families are alike. We want to understand your concerns about your pet and pet sure we can help you reach your goals. Whether those goals are to return to agility classes or continue to enjoy your long walks on the lakefront - we are here to help make sure you achieve those goals!


You may have been given pain medications to address your pet's pain and they didn't help much. Or maybe your pet's pain returned once they finished their course of medications. We know that once your pet has an injury or develops an issue with a specific joint, the pain typically doesn't stop there. They often develop muscular dysfunction and pain in other parts of the the body. Through our comprehensive exam process we're able to identify all of your pet's areas of pain and create a plan of care to specifically address your pets unique needs. 


We meet a lot of pet parents who come to us with a diagnosis for their pet, but despite multiple vet visits, they still don't have a clear understanding of their pet's condition or what it will take to get them pain free.  We take the time to explain your pet's exam findings which includes reviewing any previous medical records and diagnostics to ensure you have a clear understanding of your pet's condition. We will thoroughly review our services and make sure you understand the reasoning behind our recommendations. We value the relationships we create with pet parents and consider you to be a valuable part of your pet's team! 



"Since day one Dr. Arielle has been accommodating to my pup who has anxiety and fearfulness. When she tore her ACL we opted for alternative treatment which got her walking with decreased lameness faster than we all had anticipated! Each session Arielle was very patient, observant, knowledgeable, and always listened to requests and concerns. Her approach was very adaptive from session to session based on progress. She also helped get my pups gut flora balanced within a month! Can't recommend her enough!"
