Jennifer Brooks,

                             PT, MEd, CERP, CCRP


In the year 2000 Jennifer Brooks, PT, decided to combine her love of horses with her professional skills as a Physical Therapist. She began studying equine, and later canine, anatomy, kinesiology (the study of movement) and equine pathologies. Much of her continuing educational pursuits in equine PT have involved understanding the benefits of modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, heat and cold, low level light LASER, electrical stimulation along with manual therapeutic interventions, that are commonly used on humans in clinical settings, with thoughts of “How can I utilize these proven methods that help humans, to help heal dogs, horses and other mammals?”
Jennifer started her professional career as a licensed Physical Therapist (PT) graduating with a B.S. in PT from Russell Sage College (see Sage Colleges profile on Jennifer), Troy, NY, in 1985. She went on to receive her M.Ed from Rivier College, Nashua, NH in 1995. She has taught at two are colleges in the Master’s PT Programs at University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and at Notre Dame College, Manchester, NH.

Jennifer is a University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture faculty member for their Certificate Program in Equine Rehabilitation. For more details, see Jennifer's faculty page.

Jennifer has spent the last 13 years focused on studies in canine and equine rehabilitation. Please click on to her CV link for a full outline of the course work she has pursued. She attended the Equine Rehabilitation Institute in Loxahatchee, Fl and received her Equine Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification in 2006, and her Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification in 2012 through the collaboration of Northeast Seminars and the University of Tennessee Veterinary College. She continues to grow her equine, canine and human knowledge base with continuing education in both disciplines.

About Us

Joy Hammer, VT, Rehab Technician

Joy has been in the veterinary field since the year 2000,

working as a veterinary technician as well as a receptionist.

Joy is very passionate about what she does and cares

for all of the patients as they were her own.


Joy became interested in physical therapy in 2014 when she adopted an inoperable paralyzed Dachshund from the practice she was working at. Joy decided to take Coco to physical therapy and became a client at Horse and Hound. Coco & Joy went thru the 6 week program here at HnHPT and a lot of home exercise and care. Coco has since regained all function in her hind end and is considered 100% recovered.

Joy has since been looking for a chance to work with us and learn more about canine physical therapy, so when the recent opportunity came up, Joy jumped on the chance to send in her resume. We were sure to scoop Joy into our practice due to the compassion and knowledge base she exuded while she was our client with Coco. 

Regan Romanoski PT, CCRT, is a 2001 graduate of the University of Hartford with a B.S. in physical therapy.  She has remained licensed in NYS

where she lives and enjoys the variety that her field

has to offer.  She is dedicated to her learning and is

well versed in multiple physical therapy settings

including, but not limited to, outpatient orthopedics,

sub-acute rehabilitation care and now canine

rehabilitation.  A few years ago she lost her elder

dog Deuce, whose physical decline left an imprint

in her heart and mind. Despite his functional decline,

he maintained his gentle spirit and positive attitude. 

Regan has since been inspired to help the lives of dogs dealing with physical impairment and ailments, in order to maximize their quality of life. This passion combined with her physical therapy degree put into motion her journey towards working with dogs.  2015 began her quest as she studied and trained through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute to become a certified canine rehabilitation therapist (CCRT) in 2016.  She now holds a New Hampshire physical therapy license and is very excited to be a part of this knowledgeable, caring team and looks forward to making a positive impact on the lives of many dogs and their humans!

 

LeeAnn Toolan, DVM, Acupuncturist

My practice philosophy and goal is to help each animal I treat to live as happy and healthy a life as possible for as long as possible. I think of my patients and clients as part of my veterinary family and treat them with respect, caring and compassion. My work in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is my passion and my way of contributing to the betterment of our world. I have had this quote on my desk for years, and believe it wholeheartedly:

“The way we earn our living can be a source of peace and joy…
Our work can be a wonderful means for us to express our deepest self… When we do this, we are able to realize peace and joy, and the work we do will be of great help to ourselves and to the world.”
                                           
– Thich Nhat Hanh


After graduating from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993 and completing a Small Animal Internship at University of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan Canada in 1994, I practiced small animal medicine and surgery in Colorado prior to relocating to New Hampshire in 2001.

I have extensive training in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and utilize all five branches of TCVM including Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Food Therapy, Tui-na (Chinese Therapeutic Massage) and Exercise with the goal of balancing the body and assisting it back to a healthy state. TCVM works with Western Medicine to accomplish this goal. Western diagnostics of blood work, x-rays, ultrasound, MRI are needed to obtain an accurate diagnosis along with medications. TCVM can take a bit longer to see results but there are few side effects and the body can heal faster with long lasting results.
