Dr. Chris Bell
Dr Chris Bell graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and continued into the field of horse veterinary medicine as an equine surgeon and sports medicine veterinarian. In 2012, Dr Bell was approached by a small animal veterinarian and their client to help consult on a difficult musculoskeletal issue in their dog. Dr. Bell’s extensive knowledge of horse sports medicine translated well into the area of dog sports medicine and he was able to successfully help the dog. Dr. Bell has been seeing dogs (and cats) for musculoskeletal related illness and injury for years since. Dr. Bell brings skills in tendon, muscle, joint and ligament ultrasound as well as advanced sports medicine therapies such as shockwave therapy, laser therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy, Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IRAP) therapy and stem cell therapies.
Dr. Bell will be offering these services through Grant Park Animal Hospital as well as continuing to provide consult services in your own pets veterinary clinic as needed. If you would like more information about having Dr. Bell see your dog or cat for a soft tissue limb injury or want to have your veterinarian work with Dr. Bell at your home clinic, give us a call to discuss
