The Rehab Vets
Dr. Tracie Grubb is the founder of The Rehab Vets: A co-op approach to care.
Dr. Grubb is excited to provide veterinary rehabilitation services to the pets of the Western Slope of Colorado. She has extensive experience seeing the patients too nervous to be treated in a standard hospital setting. Dr. Grubb says, “Much of the time, they [the patient] do much better in a quieter and neutral setting. I aim to accommodate my patients by offering a stress-free and FUN environment in which to treat them.”
Dr. Grubb designed her office space to support the needs of the fearful pet in a neutral space, offer more treatment options for better results, and allow mobile practitioners use of the space as co-op members. “The more options available to a practitioner in terms of accessible treatment modalities, physical locations, and collaborative partners only increases the likelihood of a positive outcome for the patient. To the best of my knowledge, this is a business model for care not seen elsewhere in the veterinary community.”
FOR OUR CLIENTS, Dr. Grubb, and the team affiliated with the co-op, would love to talk to you about a variety of treatment options for your small animal companion. We would love to help your pets enjoy the freedom of movement. Let us write your pet’s prescription for mobility today. If you would like to make an appointment, please click here.
FOR OUR VETERINARY COLLEAGUES, The Rehab Vets provides a spacious, welcoming environment for you to work with your patients and clients and run your business independently. We can help with various administrative needs, refer patients within the co-op for alternative therapies or services, and assist with patient care during vacations or continuing education opportunities. As the co-op grows, so does the ability to offer additional services. If you would like to discuss how the co-op can help you and your patients, please click here.
We look forward to meeting and working with you and your pet on the path to healthful success.
MEET THE PROFESSIONALS
Dr. Tracie’s interest in veterinary physical rehabilitation has been her passion for many years. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Kinesiology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Colorado State University. Dr. Tracie worked in general practice for several years after which she was given an opportunity to apply her biomechanical background to her veterinary patients. She spent several years working specifically with the design, fitting and adjustments of veterinary orthotics and prosthetic devices for disabled companion animals.
In 2015, Dr. Tracie started a mobile and “in-clinic” practice, Red Wagon Canine Rehabilitation, LLC in her garage! As the practice grew, she moved to an office in Littleton, Colorado until she and her husband decided it was time to leave the big city. The new practice in Montrose, Colorado will open in January, 2022 under the name of The Rehab Vets.
Dr. Tracie offers rehabilitation services along with acupuncture, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, laser therapy, massage, and other pain-relieving modalities. Hydrotherapy (underwater treadmill) will be an exciting addition to the new practice and will expedite the goal for independent mobility in her patients.
Getting companion animals back to their regular function and routines is Dr. Tracie’s mission when approaching any case. She is well known for her ability to form strong, lasting bonds with both her patients and her clients.
Dr. Tracie Grubb previously served as President of the non-profit organization, Human Animal Bond Trust (HABT). This organization boasts the oldest pet loss support group in the country. She was honored to work alongside a group of dedicated pet lovers to provide activities and educational experiences that support the human-animal bond while funding the pet loss support group services.

In her spare time, Dr. Tracie enjoys spending time with her husband, Colin. She enjoys golf, running, pet photography, and pastel painting. The furry family consists of Tulip, a young boxer mix, 2 mischievous cats, Andale and Pronto, and the newest addition, Frances, a senior puppy mill survivor.
