Galen Therapy or Myotherapy

This therapy is named Galen, after a Greek physician who studied anatomy, although it is sometimes know as Myotherapy. It is a form of canine massage that is accredited and includes an intensive study of canine anatomy and physiology in the training programme. The combination of the two factors is what initially attracted practitioner Nicola Wreford to the therapy.

Nicola is now qualified in the therapy and was keen to show us on camera the wonderful ways in which the massage can relax dogs, improve their muscle strength and help keep them in tip top condition.

Deaf Dog Network

We had the privilege today to meet Karen Lawe, one of the founders of an organisation called the Deaf Dog Network. Karen's inspiration has lead her to create a project to educate people about living with, training and understanding deaf dogs. The network is proud to be available to help out breeders with advice if they find they have pups born that are deaf and to empower owners of deaf dogs with the confidence and techniques to live in harmony with them.

We filmed some great articles with Karen and very much look forward to sharing them with you later in the year.

Filming with Michael Ball

We are proud today to have filmed for you an article with broadcaster and actor, Michael Ball and his gorgeous Tibetan Terrier Freddie!

Freddie has undergone a big operation under Noel Fitzpatrick, 'The Bionic Vet'. The poor little dog has had to have a new hip in a revolutionary new type of operation after being involved in a traffic accident.

Michael had been away from Freddie for 5 weeks while he underwent his surgery, his recovery and subsequent physiotherapy programme back to optimal health. Both parties were immensely pleased to see each other as you can imagine!

After interviewing Michael about his life with Freddie and how he has coped with being away from him for so long we were also able to speak to Noel about the revolutionary new surgery and the operation itself.

One of our desires with this magazine is to be able to highlight the advancements that now exist for dogs in veterinary medicine and so we very much look forward to bring you this heart warming article later in 2011 and sharing with the world the choices for dogs that are being developed all the time.
