Post surgical package

To help the body parts get out of shock, and move naturally again.

I'm a rehabilitation nurse for humans, and now I'm using those same skills on animals.  I know how it feels when a muscle reacts a certain way, because I've seen it in people.  My dog Bosco had multiple surgeries, and each time he was given pain relief and I was told to rest him.  When I started working on a rehab ward (with humans) I noticed they were given exercises to do and had physical therapies on top of pain relief and bed rest. People get these treatments as part of recovery, and we need to make it common for animals.

I keep getting great results with dogs no one else has been able to help.  I will always recommend a vet for emergencies, but I am not a vet.  Unlike a vet I have trained in bodywork therapies, not in medicine.  I don't see a sore leg and treat the sore leg, I assess the whole body and see where the issue started, and that is where I start treating.

I want to get these same great results for your animals.  If you know an animal who hasn't fully recovered after surgery, this could be just what they need.

There are two main reasons I package my services. Firstly, often their issue didn’t happen overnight.  So when we make changes to your dog physically, we need to ensure they stay put.  Secondly, I want to involve YOU as much as possible in your dog’s healing.

I will teach you two preventative techniques at the first session, and ensure you are doing these correctly.  During the second session I will confirm you are applying them correctly and advise of any changes needed to your technique.

I will teach you two exercises specific to your dog's condition and you will notice the improvement. These won't require my supervision!!

I will also watch your dog move around the house, and point out things that they do that would benefit from changes. Changes YOU can implement to help keep them comfortable and in good condition.

This package includes

2 sessions with me within a week

2 techniques taught to their human

2 exercises taught to their human

my input on changes to make to the house

and is $400

Sheldon had surgery to remove an injured toe. Following this his attitude changed from a fun loving floof to cranky, grumpy, moody, and not enjoying anything. Gemma took him to multiple vets who couldn't find a reason for his change and one said he was just being naughty, that he didn't need pain relief, etc. As someone who experienced this myself, I love these cases! Once I got my hands on Sheldon, I could feel the difference in his legs, and the tenseness where there should be softness. After one session (which Sheldon did NOT enjoy) he got his Beyonce bounce back. Once I softened off his muscles and gave them their flexibility back his whole attitude changed IMMEDIATELY, you could see him relax and his whole stance softened. Although he very firmly showed me the way out of his house and barked a few swears at me, Gemma has let me know he's completely back to normal and is his lovely, happy, sweet self again. After surgery us humans have rehabilitation as well as pain relief, why would it be any different for animals?

24 hours post treatment for post surgery muscle spasm and general discomfort after two months of being injured. What a difference a day makes. No shaking on the injured leg and freer movement. Thank you so much Donna for you care and attention to my Sheldon. He’s smiling brighter today too. Physical and alternative therapy is just as important for animals as it is for humans. We really are grateful for what you do.
