About Me

PhysioMy.Dog - Holistic Animal/Veterinary Physiotherapy & Other Hands on Therapies for your Dog

Growing Up with Dogs

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
