The Galen Comfort Scale
The Galen Comfort Scale has been organically developed to measure and gauge a dog’s level of comfort from a mobility and lameness perspective.
The scale has been scientifically developed over 20 years of experience, identifying behavioural and physical changes that relate to a dogs physical and muscular health.
We use the Galen Comfort Scale to document quantitative change from treatments but it can also help owners to identify any changes they observe in their dog’s behaviour. Try it on your own dog with the free download at the bottom of the page.
HOW IT WORKS
Pain and Behaviour Indicators
Pain and behaviour interpretation is an integral part of how we work and we’ve identified key behavioural indicators from the thousands of dogs who have been treated by Galen Myotherapy.
We do not call it a ‘pain scale’ because, as therapists, we cannot legally or ethically diagnose ‘pain’. However, we can make an opinion of a dog’s comfort based on our years of study, and behaviours exhibited before Galen Myotherapy treatment and the changes in their behaviours and attitudes after.
How we use it
As Galen Myotherapists we use the Galen Comfort Scale to document quantitative change from treatments which is included in our reports to Veterinary Surgeons.
It is also included within our Distance Support Programme.

I looked at so many courses that are available, but I'm so glad that I decided to study with you. The difference for me was the way you give dogs choice, and I couldn't imagine working any other way. Since graduating I've been able to support my dogs, and the support you gave me in marketing have allowed me to build a client base in my local town and beyond.
I couldn't imagine not being part of Galen Therapy Centre now, thank you SO much!
