Why Do I Give A Damn – Michelle Monk – Animal Physiotherapist

Inspiring Snippet

Dogs In Motion Canine Rehabilitation

Because I believe the bond between a dog and owner is sacred, and  once you have experienced this – itsa love like no other. When our dogs are injured or sick, its soul destroying.  We feel helpless and responsible and just want them to get better

Why do I do what i do? Anything I can do to nurture this bond – by providing physiotherapy to the dogs and helping the owners to get their dogs back on track.
