Kate has been successfully performing rehabilitation services on dogs and cats for over 4 years, and is studying long distance to become qualified as a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner, through the University of Tennessee in the USA.
Kate is experienced in working on animals who are recovering from orthopaedic and spinal injuries or surgeries, as well as congenital orthopaedic conditions such as hip and elbow dysplasia. In addition she treats injured working dogs, competition agility dogs and older pets with arthritis or spondylosis.
