WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Our black Labrador Barney, suffered a spinal stroke. He was paralysed from the neck down when he came home. With Sarah's treatments and guidance for home exercises, Barney regained the ability to walk on his own again. Without Sarah's care & advice, we believe Barney's recovery would have been considerably slower and we would recommend Sarah to anyone needing help and support with their pet's recovery.
Sarah is a first class physiotherapist who is largely instrumental in keeping my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mobile and happy. Whether the appointment is for routine maintenance or a more intense treatment after a flare-up (which happened during lockdown) she never gives less than 100%. The treatment is tailored to Rocky's needs. The exercises she has suggested for us to do at home re also invaluable and most importantly Rocky adores her!
I can highly recommend Sarah's canine massage course. I went with my Lab Hector and it was such a lovely thing to do with him. I learnt some calming techniques and a variety of types of massage. Sarah is very informative and intuitive to your dog's needs... She is a great teacher and explains all the techniques in a way that everyone can understand. I left feeling confident that I can make Hector feel more comfortable
