Galen Canine Myotherapist

07866 432 072
I live in Moray with my husband, two little girls and two black Labradors – all of who keep my busy in their own ways. Dogs have always played an important part in my life, and I love all dogs of all shapes and sizes! I am passionate about my work and enthusiastic about helping dogs live their best life possible through Galen Myotherapy.
I have a Level 3 Diploma in Galen Myotherapy, I am registered with Galen, and I have a Canine First Aid Certificate. I am fully insured, and will only accept cases with veterinary consent. My qualifications and experience means I can offer the best level of care for your dog in the comfort of your own home.
Wilf was my first ‘baby’, before any human ones came along. When he was diagnosed with bilateral Elbow Dysplasia, underwent surgery for it, and then developed secondary Osteoarthritis, I had to do something. I wanted to be able to help Wilf live a more pain free life and give him back some of the spark he had when he was younger. From this, I became enthusiastic about helping other dogs that were suffering from chronic muscular pain as a direct result of the common conditions that we see in a dog’s life.
After researching accredited courses, I decided that the Galen Canine Myotherapy diploma was the right course for me for a number of reasons. First and foremost because of its 1st Guiding Principle: Choice-led Treatment. This means that all treatment is choice-led by the dog.
Since commencing regular treatments, Wilf has gone from a lame, stiff and grumpy old man to a happy, cuddly young man that plays with his toys again and enjoys playing chase or tug of war with his pup sister Peanut. Wilf also attends regular hydrotherapy sessions at Highland Hydrotherapy in Elgin. Hydrotherapy and massage work well together to form a multimodal approach to his care. Peanut also receives regular myotherapy treatments to help keep her young developing bones, muscles and joints in tip top condition.
