Taking a dog into such a potentially alien environment of the treatment suite who was most worried? Neither of us – because Cathy immediately put us both at ease and was re-assuring and made us feel secure in the knowledge that we were in capable hands.
Cathy is calm, efficient and able to acquire the facts from the owners about the pet’s needs and then explain the options and her recommendation for the best course of treatment for the pooch.
Meanwhile the ‘man’s best friend’ is spoken to and made to feel noticed and calmed.
Encouraged to enter the hydrotherapy treadmill which clean warm water then flowing around was not what our dog expected, being more used to cold river water but Cathy was expert at making the procedure acceptable. It has rebuilt the muscle on our post- operative lad’s legs in a safe controlled manner and brought him much faster back to his usual active rabbit-chasing self.
Then for some fun in the pool chasing his chosen toy with Cathy’s help to
strengthen his muscles further and lose some weight, followed by a snooze
at home after all that hard work.
Leo would not have regained his fitness so quickly without your expertise Cathy, we cannot thank you enough.
