Winston

Hello and welcome to Winston. Such a well behaved labrador!

He is a total fan of agility and his mum is keen to keep him in top condition so they can both keep having fun and do what they love most!

Winston devloped a mild lameness. So mum was straight at the vet. Nothing significant was found. So she decided to be double certain, and brought him for a physio assessment.

We were pleased to find not too much more! We discussed a gradual return to work program as his lamenes had gone, but we did't want to aggrevate any healing tissues.

Mum is highly vigilant and knowledgeable so we know he will be well looked after.

Keep up the good work mum and Winston!

Sage

Hello and welcome to Sage. This super cute border collie came for a mobility check. Such a great idea for any dog. Its always helful to know if issues are sneeking in, then you can make adjustments early.

Sage is actually an agility loving dog too. Mum felt Sage must get an assessment, after we had such a great success with her other dog Fern. Fern came to see us after she dislocated her elbow. She made a full recovery and is now back to full life including agility.

Sage is in excellent condition and its a weight off mums shoulders to know thats great. We gave some tups on muscle building so that she can stay in peak condition for as long as possible.

Keep up the good work Mum, Sage and Fern!

Welcome to Mazie

Mazie

Well this one will be a quick blog!

This super sweet staffie cross lots of other things, has an amazing mum, who takes her little one to agility.

She decided it was time to get her checked over thoroughly to ensure there was nothing detrimental going on.

This is an excellent idea. Picking up issues early means they won't be as bad as you can make good adaptions or work on thier weaknesses. Or finding out there is nothing wrong will give you excellent peace of mind and let you strive in with confidence.

Mazie was found to be in excellent condition with excellent flexibility. We gave sone suggested excercises just to add a bit more tone in the hind. Mum was very pleased.

Keep up the good work mum and Mazie!

Welcome to Fern

Fern

Fern

Hello and welcome to Fern. Such a cute little collie. She really is a cuddle bum and a heart melter!

Sadly she managed to have an argument with a car. The driver was devastated as Fern didn't look where she was going and no one knew about the hole in the fence that she had found in a park.

The result was a dislocated elbow. It took time before it was relocated, but luckily for her, it was reduced without surgery, successfully.

So she came for physiotherapy to rehabilitate. We have to say, her recovery has been incredible! She has done so well by herself. But we can enhance this and give mum some confidence in her recovery. In the early stages the risk is that the joint is not yet stable and can pop out again. This has not happened so this is excellent news.

Her rehab encouraged good healing, range of movement and muscle building to support the joint. We are then slowly increasing the load in the joint and gentle stresses so that she can get back to her beloved agility. Mum is happy to do whatever keeps Fern happy, and agility does that so we are all keen to get her back where she is happiest.

Keep up the good work mum and Fern!
