Owner - Lisa Woodside, DVM, CCRT, CVSMT
Dr. Lisa Woodside graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2005 with a degree in Animal Science. She then continued pursing her dream of becoming a Veterinarian and graduated from Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. In 2010 her childhood dog, Max - a chocolate lab, began having more trouble getting around. She decided to take him for underwater treadmill therapy, because she'd heard that was helpful. After a couple months she realized there was more to this "rehab stuff" than just underwater treadmill. She went on to get certified in canine rehab through the Canine Rehab Institute and certified in veterinary spinal manipulation through the The Healing Oasis Wellness Center. Dr. Woodside's main interests are in dog sports, specifically injury prevention (fitness and conditioning) and post-surgical recovery.
Dr. Woodside currently has four dogs and two cats. She has a fourteen year old Flat Coated Retriever Mix - Coty, an eight year old Aussie Mix - Rory, a four year old Border Collie - Teigh, and a three month old Miniature American Shepherd - Vex. She and Rory currently compete in agility at the Master level. Teigh is retired from agility, just got his TDI, and is starting nose work and barn hunt. Some day Vex will also do agility, but right now he is just having fun being a naughty puppy.
Dr. Woodside is a member of the following organizations:
- American Veterinary Medical Association

- American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians
