The mission of P.A.W.S is to improve the health, well-being and functional longevity of our patients using swim therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, nutrition and homeopathy in a state-of-the-art referral setting.

Dr. Regina Schwabe integrates 26 years of clinical veterinary experience with advanced training in acupuncture, chiropractic and homeopathy. She is certified by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society and the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

Focus is on comfort, pain management, nutrition and conditioning for competition. The centerpiece of the P.A.W.S facility is a custom-built 8x16 in-ground pool with a resistance current. This current can be modified to the needs of the patient from maximum conditioning effort to rehabilitation after injury or orthopedic surgery. A treadmill is available for exercise and therapy.

P.A.W.S is located in Pamplin, Virginia in a serene rural setting. It is mid-way between  Roanoke and Richmond, and accessible from Charlottesville and Raleigh-Durham. Patients are encouraged to bring medical records and radiographs as available. These may be required prior to a consultation. For conditioning, each animal will be examined and given an individualized protocol.
