Our 10-year-old Weimaraner started showing signs of significant mobility in mid-January, 2022. Symptoms were that she would fall/splay on our flooring, difficulty getting up from lying down, inability to lie down in all positions, extremely hesitant on the stairs, front knuckling of both paws and falling when squatting. We were certain we were going to have to put her down. We brought her to the vet who indicated he didn’t think it was her time yet, she had a bad back just like a human and he prescribed medications. I contacted Zen Dog and Kat began seeing Lily at the beginning of February and what a difference she has made for our pup. Lily hasn’t slipped/fallen in over a week, we have removed the “Help Me Up Harness” and she can get up and go up and down the stairs with ease. Kat has made a massive difference in Lily’s life, which in turn has made a big difference for our family. Not only she is a fantastic clinician, but she is also an amazing, caring person who puts the dog’s need as number one. I feel so fortunate to have found Kat.
Kat really cares about her clients. She has been working on my 10 1/2 year old Boarder collie/ St Bernard mix. He is a big boy and has really bad hips. About a year ago the vet stated that I should get myself prepared to let him go. Enters Kat in the picture. We met at an off leash area and she noticed his shaking legs. "I can fix that" she said. I have not been disappointed. I have him for another year and possibly more. He is slow but he is walking and loving life. She recently came to my home, on a Sunday night, because he was really bad. Not wanting to put weight on his one foot. She worked on him and he was able to put some weight on the foot after she left. She gave me a heat and cold treatment schedule for him to help with the rest of the treatment. He goes for his weekly massage and I am convinced that has extended his life. This girl knows here stuff and would recommend her to anyone.
Kat is amazing! She is truly meant to be helping animals in this way and is so passionate about her patients. As vets, we have seen the success of her techniques with our patients and we recommend her to anyone looking for help for their pets who are suffering from joint disease, fear or anxiety or even recovering from surgery.
