Aiken Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation congratulates Annette Turno, a licensed veterinary technician, for receiving certification as a canine rehabilitation practitioner.

The yearlong process included six in-depth courses at the University of Tennessee and treating dogs with neurological and orthopedic problems. As part of her training, she put her classroom knowledge to practical use at a busy rehab facility in Atlanta.

Turno, who assists Dr. Sybil Davis at Aiken Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation, will help treat overweight dogs, dogs recovering from surgery and sports injuries, and those undergoing treatment for arthritis, chronic pain and neurological disorders.

Turno graduated from North Augusta High School and received a degree in veterinary technology from Tri-County Technical College in Pendleton. She worked as a vet tech for Aiken Veterinary Clinic from 1981 until 2010. In January 2011, Turno joined Davis at Aiken Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation, which provides therapeutic services for dogs and cats.
