A recent testimonal; ”Cassie treats all my dogs but most frequently she treats my young agility dog, a border collie called Kiah. Cassie is a huge part of Kiahs fitness and conditioning programme and she treats her on a routine basis. Cassie is an absolute expert at her profession and I trust her completely to keep Kiahs muscles healthy and help us to avoid any potential injuries. I would (and do!) recommend Cassie wholeheartedly to anyone needing help rehabbing a dog from an injury or as a routine treatment for older or sporting dogs. We all love her!”
