Debby takes a holistic approach to her practice bringing together alternative treatments with the more conventional medical world. What makes 4 Paws unique is her close working relationship with the veterinarian community. Debby works directly with the veterinary team of Oak Park Animal Hospital and is able to confer immediately with the medical experts about your pet’s situation. Debby provides massage services from the veterinarians’ offices or in your home – you choose the most comfortable location for your pet.
Prior to 4 Paws Debby was an executive with Northern Trust Company. She retired from the corporate world with a desire to spend time in a more healing way. With her trusty dog Jasper by her side (along with her impressively supportive husband and kids) Debby discovered her not-so-hidden calling - canine massage therapy. Debby is an equal opportunity massage therapist – working on both dogs and cats ...and the occasional exotic.
