Webinar Speaker

Dr. Michelle Savigny, MS, DACVECC (@SOUND Veterinary Rehabilitation Center)
After graduating from the University of Buffalo, she attended veterinary school at Texas A&M. From there, she completed an internship and residency in small animal emergency and critical care and earned a master’s degree at Auburn University. She became board certified in Emergency and Critical Care in 2008 and made the trek to the beautiful Pacific Northwest which she has called home ever since.

In 2018, Dr. Savigny adopted a Golden Retriever with severe elbow dysplasia and while she had always had an interest in rehabilitation therapy, it wasn’t until then that she truly saw the benefits and potential that the field held. After two years of exploring different types of rehabilitation therapy with her own dog, Dr. Savigny decided that it was time for her to make the switch from emergency medicine to rehabilitation.
