natural way possible.
We all have more than enough stress in our lives already – the last thing we need is to add to that by worrying about a visit to the vets (or indeed by worrying about our companion’s health when we just can’t think of a way we could get them there in the first place!).
Equally, many of us worry about the medication that our pets are on, and wonder if there is a more natural way. Or if, as well as everything that we already do, there isn’t something else that we can do to help our animal friends.
Pets Relaxed takes care of all of these concerns.
All consultations take place in your home, where your pets feel most at ease. Appointments are a comfortable 30-40 minutes long, giving plenty of time for a thorough examination, and to discuss all your questions and concerns. Because the atmosphere is relaxed, you are much more likely to remember your questions – and the answers! I also assess your pet’s environment, diet and lifestyle. Together we will make a treatment plan that works for both you and your pet. I use conventional medicine where it’s appropriate, and natural alternatives wherever possible. More often than not, I use both together.
In emergencies, you should take your pet to your registered vet for immediate care.
My goal is to help you feel empowered to look after your pet in the way that most resonates with you – conventional, natural, or both.
I graduated as a vet in Germany in 1999 and moved to England shortly after that. I’ve spent 17 years working for the PDSA at their Bradford and Huddersfield clinics – both incredibly busy and with a huge variety of cases.
I’ve also worked many weekend shifts for Vets Now emergency clinic and as a Locum vet for various other small animal clinics. I am proud to be trustee and lead vet for StreetPaws – a charity that looks after the welfare of the pets of homeless people throughout the north of England. Here we are on Outreach in Manchester, featured in Manchester Evening News and last but not least I regularly monitor animal wellness on filmset for Vet on Set, which is completely different and lots of fun!
I have a strong interest in natural medicine, am continuously building on my knowledge and I’m a member of various vet organisations: ABVA (Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists), BVHA (British Veterinary Herbalist Association) and RFVS (Raw Feeding Veterinary Society). I write regular articles for Saddleworth Life online magazine.
I live in beautiful Diggle with my husband Thorsten, our two sons, our rescue dog Patch and our rescue cat Filou.
1 – After I finished school, I went travelling to New Zealand on a container ship, and worked there as a farm hand on a sheep and cattle farm. This is where I decided to become a vet!
2 – I’m also a Tai Chi Instructor. I find it really helps me to unwind and relax, and my students?say the same. I teach weekly classes in Diggle and Milnsbridge. Why don’t you come and give it a go? Check out the Facebook Page.
3 – I’m really good at skiing and really bad at playing the piano (but I love both!)
