Testimonials from happy owners: 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Eleanor Andrews since 2013. She is the incredible Animal Osteopath, treating our rescue cat who had suffered terrible abuse previously. This abuse had resulted in a suspected pelvic fracture and hip impact. He was referred via Richard Allport (who specialises in natural therapies for pets) to Eleanor with a misaligned pelvis leading to difficulty jumping and pain on touch.  Eleanor has provided Osteopathic treatment on a maintenance basis usually between 6 and 10 weeks using a mix of articulation, mobilisation and involuntary mechanism treatment as appropriate throughout his musculoskeletal system.This, without a shadow of a doubt, has substantially alleviated his pain and improved his mobility and general wellbeing. Eleanor is an expert in her field. She clearly cares about her patients, she listens and is extremely personable communicating across all steps of the treatment process

If you are looking for one of the best Animal Osteopaths who is an absolute expert in their field of work I would have no hesitation in recommending Eleanor Andrews and the quality of treatment and service she provides. On a personal note Elea, we have been lucky to find you. Thank you for your love, care and compassion. You are an absolute professional and expert in your field and we can probably never thank you enough for all you have done and continue to do for our precious boy.” D. Thrift.
