‘Raggles’ Pardoe

picture of RagglesRaggles is a dearly loved 13 year old cocker spaniel and we have had him just over two years. His history is unknown, but he suffers from a number of health issues. He then damaged a cruciate ligament which caused him great pain and an inability to stand or walk. The vet informed us, that due to Raggles age and pre existing health problems, surgery was not a viable option. He did however suggest physiotherapy might help and recommended Kathryn Welland of Oaklands Physiotherapy.

Kath worked with Raggles for three months and, despite being a difficult dog to handle, made excellent progress. Kath's experienced and reassuring approach involved us in his treatment so we could improve his condition between therapy sessions.

Raggles is now back to enjoying long walks twice a day and is pain free. The transformation is astounding thanks to Kath's knowledge and experience. I thought I would have to put him to sleep... Kath ensured I did not have to make that decision.

I thoroughly recommend Kath to all pet owners, she is cheerful and has a very professional approach which puts both pet and owners at ease.

‘Izzy’ Pargetter

picture of IzzyMy three year old English springer spaniel bitch, Izzy has spinal and leg injuries. Although operable the prognosis was not good so we decided not to put her through the trauma of the operation.

It became apparent that Izzy would need a cocktail of drugs to keep her pain to a minimum. My vet put Izzy on a course of acupuncture and then referred her to Oaklands Physiotherapy.

Kathryn came to our house to asses Izzy and show me a home programme that I could carry out myself at home.

In two months Izzy has made great progress and the pain is subsiding. We have been able to take her off the pain killer Tramadol and she is now only on a reduced dose of Metacam. She is also weight bearing on all four legs and enjoying walks with the rest of our Springer Spaniel pack.
