Country Canines Hydrotherapy is owned and managed by Sian. Opening the Hydrotherapy Centre has been the realisation of a lifelong dream for after working for many Hydrotherapy centres around the UK. From a young age, Sian’s own dog and Mascot to the centre Lola, has suffered from chronic multiple joint problems and has had many pioneering surgeries, where hydrotherapy rehabilitation is integral to recovery and ongoing management of arthritis and understands first hand how her customers feel. Sian, Lola and the Hydrotherapy Centre have been featured on Channel 4’s SuperVet with Noel Fitzpatrick whom pioneered all of Lola’s surgery.
Sian grew up in the local countryside & started out her canine career in the Veterinary industry working in Small Animal Practice and progressed onto starting her studies in Veterinary Science at Liverpool Vet School. During these initial years Sian gained much valued theoretical knwoledge and clinical hands on experience.
However, it soon became apparent Sian's interests lay within Canine Physical Rehabiliattion, so she dedicated her time and initially trained at Greyfriars Veterinary Rehabilitation and Hydrotherapy Referral Centre & to keep ontop of the latest research and developments Sian continues to undergo Continued Professional Development (CPD) throughout the year.
Sian, Matt & Lola are members of Terra Nova Working Newfoundlands whom are dedicated to training their Newfoundlands in a multitude of disciplines, including water rescue, draughting, nosework and obedience. They often travel and compete nationally with the Northern Newfoundland Club and the Working Newfoundland Club and you’ll often find them in the Summer doing water rescue in the many lakes around the UK.
