Bex & Perci

Perci having canine massage therapy

Perci the canicross dog was lame.  His vets couldn’t find the cause.

During treatment, I discovered Perci had an unusual problem with his foot.

Once I’d resolved this for him he hasn’t limped since.

Chewy’s Mum

This is Chewy, a young rescue dog.

Chewys Mum wanted to get him Agility ready and so joined my 8-week foundation class.

Storm the black and white Husky loved by Angela Day

Perci is a very active Cani-cross dog. He developed sudden forelimb lameness appearing like a shoulder issue. The vets were stumped and couldn’t find the cause. During Perci's massage treatment, I discovered he had an unusual problem with his foot. Once I’d resolved this for him he hasn’t limped since and continues to this day with his Cani-cross career. "After just one session his limp went completely."
