Welcome to the home of Overend Orthopaedic Animal Therapy and Rehab
The K9 Clinic
YOUR ANIMALS health is very important to me and I am driven by the belief that all problems have a cause and therefore if we can find the cause then we can find a solution. I have studied for over 20 yrs and I continue to do so, not only because I love learning but because I believe that each animal is individual and that means I need many solutions. The more I know the more I am likely to be able to help you and you animal.
Often short term solutions for an issue are at the expense of the animals welfare and don’t often equal long term success. I have an holistic view which means I will be looking at all aspects of your animals daily life in order to detect why there is a problem and resolve it. This could be a slippery laminate floor in the case of a recurring strain injury in a dog or hoof or saddle issue causing lameness and back pain in your horse. I can detect even the smallest issues that can be causing you and your animals HUGE problems. I work closely with vets and other professionals to resolve these issues and get you back on track to having a healthy happy animal.
