I'm Harriet Kitcat and live in the fabulous town of Frome, Somerset with my partner Steve and our gorgeous rescue Golden Retriever Baxter. We feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I've always been a huge animal lover, growing up with dogs and puppy walking for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Our first pack member Jenson was my motivation to start PhysioMy.Dog and he along with Baxter inspire me everyday to help dogs move and feel better. Jenson crossed the rainbow bridge too soon aged only 5 years old, but what a legacy he left. He changed our lives and my career forever.
I'm a big believer more than one therapy can help and I take a holistic approach. During each treatment, I will incorporate the most appropriate therapies, personalising each session and treatment plan to suits your dog's needs.
I'm passionate about empowering owners to learn more about the numerous things they can do themselves to help their dog. I will talk owners through this during our treatment sessions, but in addition, I have created some online learning content that owners can implement.
I look forward to helping your dog feel and move better. Can’t wait to hear from you! x

"Harriet is amazing ... not only with the treatment of my girl Maddie but she is also a huge emotional support for the owner :-) always just a message away of there is a worry. She's very sufficient when it comes to writing and sending reports to vets . Maddie loves her physio session with Harriet (absolutely nothing to do with the amount of treats and cuddles she gets of her lol ). Can only highly recommend Harriet". TD, Owner.
