About us

Susanne’s Story

I am passionate that you and your animal should be able to enjoy life together to the full and will work with you both to create a targeted rehabilitation programme that meets your dog or cats individual needs.

I am an advanced small animal practitioner and a chartered physiotherapist, with specialist clinical skills in movement analysis and therapeutic handling. This enables me to recognise dysfunctional movement patterns and use multi modal approaches to regain lost function and prevent dysfunction from occurring.

I have advanced hydrotherapy skills and work part time at K9 Hydro Services, a leading rehabilitation and training centre for small animals, where I am also an assistant lecturer for CPD events and teach on the Level 5 diploma in hydrotherapy.
