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.
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.

We have been audited by the RCVS (royal collage of veterinary surgeons).
This is a necessary part of being an RVN (registered veterinary nurse).
We are audited to ensure we are doing enough CPD hours, or continued education.
We are proud to say, we flew through and it proves the RCVS are happy we have stayed high in our standards and kept our education fresh and up to date.
We believe this is an essential part of being the best rehabber we can be. We pride ourselves on being up to date and we thrive on new information.
The industry is evolving fast and as science progresses we learn new things daily. Its tough to keep up, but specialising in rehab does mean we docus our efforts in this one area of mobility. Its a big area, but it does mean we can be at the top of our profession.
So if you have any questions get intouch, or even post them on our facebook page.
Since we do all learn something new every day....happy learning everyone!
Hello and welcome to Rudi. This is a very special dutch kioni. A real fluff ball!
Sadly he managed to rupture both his cruciate ligaments. His recovery was going well, but mum wanted some further help so they were referred to us for Physio.
This was much needed as there was conciderable muscle loss, which suggests the cruciates were grumbeling away.
So we have set a home excercise regime and Rudi is doing really well. The biggest challange for Rudi is his behaviour. He definitly rules the roost! But its fine. We are well versed at working with the more difficult patients and we can still have a great effect on them.
Keep up the good work mum, careers and Rudi! He has quite a big loving care team!
