Donna met first met Anna when she was the physio for The pet spa at Harrods, and working as a window display with her dog, Logan (he will also be at Crufts to meet). They have since done 2 radio features together, the latest being in the Puppy Massage DVD in Novemeber. We can't wait to meet her again!

Hello and welcome to Heidi. She is a beautiful young pointer. She is only 17months old.
One day she was out having fun and then went very lame. After a trip to the vets and some Nsaid's she recovered quickly. The vet had warned her it may be a cruciate rupture. As she recovered so fast and well, mum didnt worry further.
But then a few months later it happened again. So this time mum decided she wanted to try physio to see if that would help.
So we have set her up with a home regime that will build muscle and encourage good use of the limb again.
But sadly its diffucult in dogs over 15kg if it is cruciate damage. So we are giving it a go, but mum is aware she may need to go back to the vet for furtger investigation if we dont get good results soon.
Keep up the good work mum and Heidi. Surgery is always scary, so its worth exploring all options before making your decisuon, if you have the luxury of time.
Hello and welcome to Hershy. She has been doing very well in her later years but has sadly rescently deteriorated and needs some more help.
She has a calcifed disk in her neck, possible intervertrable disk disease and possible cruciate ligament disease. She has seen a specialist.
She has now been referred to us for physiotherapy to keep her comfortable.
We have done our assessment and set her up with a home regime of gentle range of movement work and some strengthening.
She has a very caring mum and together we can keep her comfortable in her golden years.
Keep up the good work mum and Hershy!
Hello and welcome to Bertie. A sweet dog but very anxious.
He has been plaged with issues for most of his life. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis. This was then managed but is a life long problem. Mum soon realised that it was not the whole story. She felt he was still in pain. He was referred to a specialist. Though the issue remains a mystery.
So Bertie has been referred for physio to help manage the pain. We have set a gentle home regime to maintain strength. So far, we have had some progress so this is excellent news as this is such a mystry problem.
Keep up the good work mum and Bertie.

Hello and welcome to Anya. Such a beautiful German Sheppard. Sadly lost her ear when another dog bit it off! But she is fine and a bit more stream lined.
She has come as her mum saw she got very lame after doing sone agility. She has been doing agility for many years and is well experianced. So clearly mum was worried. The lameness resolved quickly but returned again in a walk on another occation. The vet didnt find too much going on.
We did our exam and also found her to be in good health, but there were a few little problems that needed some work on. So we set her a home excercise regime to get started on. She needs time for some proper healing too. But we need to also keep her mentally stimulated and allow her to do some excercise that does not aggrivate the issue.
Keep up the good work mum and Anya. Mum is highly vigilant and dedicated so we will soon get to the bottom of the issue.
We are so pleased to announce that we also have Adaptil Express tablets in our Canine Pamper Hamper prize give away!

Hello and welcome to Bently. He is a young cockerpoo and full of beans. He suddenly went off his hind. He was immediatly rushed to Fitzpatrick referrals. Following an MRI he had spinal surgery.
His recovery has been incredible. There is very little evidence of an issue. But there was some delay in paw placement in one hind.
So we set him up with a gentle excercise program that allowed him to burn some energy. We made sure the home was secure and non slip as he was confined to the kitchen. We started some pole work and muscle building.
He is doing wonderfully. Keep up the good work mum and Bently.
