Sometimes it’s tough to know where to turn to when your dog isn’t feeling well. That’s why we created Butterwick Animal Rehabilitation Clinic (BARC).

How do we do it? Well, being a pet owner – and since you’re here, a dog lover, like us – it’s likely that you’re aware of some of the more worrying options available to you if your pet gets injured or has a condition that affects their mobility. Needless to say, you’ve heard about surgery, injections, amputations, or even an end to it all; and in the face of all that, you turned around and looked for a less scary solution. We don’t blame you!

Being a pet owner sometimes means knowing that your dog cannot explain where the pain is, what the pain is doing, or how he/she is feeling. Sometimes you need someone to unravel the jargon, getting your dog back to normal or to put your mind at ease; this is where we can help. That uncertainty can be a real worry. As a result of that worry, you might feel some frustration from feeling unsure about what is the right decision and avoiding making the wrong one.

A few things we do as routine:
Listen to your worries and what you want for your dog
Assess your dog and what they need to get better
Discuss and agree a plan together so your happy
Constantly monitor your dog’s progress to keep them improving
Speak to your vet to make sure it’s right & safe for your dog
Help you with completing any insurance paperwork

When all is said and done, your dog needs you to be his/her voice. The great news is that with all the years of experience we have, we have seen a lot of dogs with a wide variety of problems and that your dog is crying out for a better life. And, even better… we’re listening and we can help your dog get back to a happier healthier life.
So, there you have it. You’ll notice that not once have we referred to your dog as ‘it’. Why? Because we know they aren’t – they are family. And we want you to have complete faith in our commitment to treating your pet as a member of our family, too.
