Hello and welcome to Boo. Oh such a cute jack russel with such lovely parents.

He has had a happy life. Then he suddenly became very ill and vestibular syndrom was diagnosed. This is a nasty illness with unknown causes. It effects the inner ear. It makes the dogs eye track side to side (nystagmus), causes a severe head tilt, nausea and sometimes vomiting. Some dogs can be so severe that they roll over and over. Luckily it was not quite so bad for Boo, but it was bad enough. His recovery was quite quick thankfully. And whilst most of the symptoms have resolved, he has been left with an aweful head tilt.

Dogs are incredible and able to cope and get used to life on the wonk. But its not nice for thier muscles. The body does compensate, but there is over use of the leg you lean on to and the balance is a struggle.

So physio can help. We have done our assessment and set a home excercise regime. This includes home massage and a series of excercises designed to promote balance. Luckily for him, his mum is a massage therapist. Lucky boy. We are also pleased to report, this os one of the few dogs I get to see at his age with no arthritis signs. Amazing!

Keep up the good work mum, dad and Boo. We'll have you feeling better soon!

Hello and welcome to Ninjin : Endo


Hello and welcome to Endo and Ninjin. Beautiful unique names! Japanese for peas and carrots!

This very sprightly pair have come in for a thorough mobility assessment as mum and dad like to make sure they are kept in peak condition and great mobility health. These two enjoy mushing in their spare time! Not a common doggie sport but these guys are well suited to it and love it.

I am pleased to say their mobility assessment went very well and mum and dad are doing a wonderful job of making sure their dogs stay fit and healthy. We were able to give a few more pointers to compliment their individual body needs.

Well done mum and dad, keep up the good work.
