Hello and welcome to George. This sweet man is slowing down.

As his sister was alreasy seeing us, mum decided to bring him in to get checked over too.

She is thrilled that she did! We have given him the once over. We identified his issue areas and we have set up a new home regime suited for his ability. This will re build at a comfortable pace and keep him from getting over stressed in his issue areas.

Keep up the good work mum and George!

Hello and welcome to Arrow. This beautiful Springer has the vets on thier toes!

He has been lame and the vet found a possible corn and some myofascial pain. So he has been referred to help with the pain and lameness.

He has got some very science headed owners so this has been a very fun case, and his diary has been immacualte! Its been like treating a scientific study case. Wonderful!

We localized some issues, reduced the excercise right down and set up a new excercise plan. His lameess has improved immensily and we are slowly rebuilding the plan at a pace that suits him.

Well done Arrow and whole family! Keep up the good work!

Hello and welcome to Norman. Also known as naughty Norman!

He is a young man full fo beans and far too excited for life!

He was a new rescue and he had a moment that scared his mum and dad. He ended up having x-rays and he was found to have hip dysplaisa. This is not really a suprise as its so common.

But what was a wonderful suprise was that in only a few weeks of rehab, he was sound and full of it again!

So we have set him up with a sensible care plan. The aim is to maintain muscle mass, prevent excessive wear, and most importantly, have fun!

We aim to have a healthy balance of supporting the ailment whilst enjoying life.

We have achieved his well.

Keep up the good work naughty norman and family!

CAM Now Stocking the Puppy Massage DVD!

We are proud anounce that CAM are now stockists of the Puppy Massage DVD.

CAM, Canine Arthritis Management, is an organisation close to our hearts. Hannah Capon MRCVS set this company up so help people learn that there is an extrordinary amount that can be done to ease arthritis. Its doesn't stop at just the medicine we get from the vet.

Donna has always had great passion for treatment of arthritis and has great success in improving the quality of life in the elderly.

The Puppy Massage DVD stuck a chord with Hannah as she also recognised the benefit in getting your dogs and owners used to massage at an early age. There are so many life long benefits to this, so calming and bonding, to knowing how to confidently do massage. This helps when an ailment occures, as you and the dog then have the base knowledge. Your rehab practioner can enhance your skill and guide to to specific areas to treat.

When it comes to easing arthritis we know that daily help is needed. There are many different modes of pain relief. Add them together to make the best pain control. This doesnt just mean drugs! Touch, balance, strength, and distraction are just some examples of totally non drug things that will induce pain relief. We just have to get the balance right for the specific patient as their disease progresses.

See the CAM website for more information on what you can do you help your dog with arthritis. Get your copy of the Puppy Massage DVD to help you start to learn full body massage. It doesnt matter what the age of your dog is...they are all our puppies at heart.
