Meredith Wille, LVT, CCRP, is passionate about many things in veterinary care, including emergency medicine and exotics, but her main focus is in rehabilitation and pain management. She also particularly loves pharaoh hounds, but has opened her house to many breeds, including a rare pumi. She works her magic at Pets in Harmony in Harmony, Pennsylvania, as well as Allegheney North Veterinary Hospital in Pittsburgh. It sure seems like one of her very favorite modalities is the Assisi Loop; “It is hard for people to really believe that this weird-looking little device is so beneficial. I mean, I was very skeptical when I first saw it,” she says. “And the truth is that if it wasn't part of my CCRP course, I'm not sure I would have believed it. But now, I know it's a remarkable little thing.” We chatted with her about her favorite cases and applications.
AAH: (Before we could even ask a question, Meredith told us how she feels!)
Meredith Wille: I absolutely love the Assisi Loop. Love it. I can't really say enough good things about the device, because I love it so much. We were in Tennessee for the International Association for Veterinary Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy’s International Symposium and Rehab Summit in summer 2018, and I kept stopping at the Assisi booth and saying hi. At one point I came back, the Assisi folks asked, ‘What are you telling people? And I said, ‘What do you mean?’ And they said, ‘We are selling out, and everyone has said you told them to come by.’ I just told them I like it.
AAH: What are some of the coolest cases you’ve had?
