Poster Talk 24/01/2019: Fitness  for  Health  &  Success  in  Canisports  –  How  to  Improve  Performance,  Reduce  the  Risk  of Injuries & Act Swiftly When Problems Occur


22/12/18

The run up to Christmas has been busy both workwise and private and keeping the webpage up to date was tricky. We hope you nevertheless enjoy the news page.

2018 is drawing to a close and the festive season is fast approaching. Many of us are making preparations to spend time with our loved ones, including our beloved pets.
Winter is a special season with the prospect of crisp wintry walks and the chance of spectacular views on horseback now that the leaves have fallen. Warms coats are needed, not just for us but also for our furry friends. Stiffness and pain associated with arthritis or injuries tends to get worse in the winter and a good coat can prevent that.

In the limelight!
Iris was set to hit the screen in an episode of Ferne & Rory’s Vet Tales, a programme made for CBeebies. Look out for the ‘Smokey the Horse’ episode on BBC iPlayer.
Filming took place over several days, during which, Ferne Corrigan and 5-year-old Zara watched Iris treat Cleveland Bay stallion ‘Smokey’. They also filmed acupuncture on Lurcher ’Vera’ and several ponies. The film crew returned a few weeks later to check up on the progress of the patients.
The ‘Smokey the Horse’ episode is available on BBC iPlayer until middle of January. We hope to be able to include some clips on our webpage and Facebook page in the near future.
Smokey and Zara are clearly the stars of the show and Iris explains both gait assessment and treatment to the young audience. Ferne gives a refreshingly straightforward explanation of how acupuncture works. From the other patients treated Charlie the Connemara pony and Danny the New Forest Pony where chosen to feature in the series. We want to thank Lurcher Vera, Cecilia Deville-Lindsay and Claire Nissel for their patience during filming.

On home ground
This year Iris enjoyed meeting a great many of you at various local charity events where she spoke on specialist subjects.
In August she gave a talk on ‘Back on Track with EMS & Laminitis’. After the talk, it was encouraging to see practical knowledge being shared between horse owners, yard owners, foot trimming professionals & equine therapists. The subsequent visit to an established track livery was a lovely and inspiring.
In September Iris spoke on ‘A Holistic Approach to Supporting Pets with Cancer’ at one of our favourite venues. K9 Raw Supplies in Cinderford offers ample space for gatherings and more importantly a comfortable treatment room where we are happy to arrange to meet clients.

Herbal Prescriptions
Please note, to comply with Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ current regulations surrounding all complementary veterinary medicine, we work on a referral only basis and are required to see our patients every 6 months for repeat herbal prescriptions. If you need more herbs and haven’t seen Iris in the last six months please make sure you book in for an appointment.

What’s new for 2019?
As of the new year we are pleased to announce that we can offer physiotherapy appointments in the Forest of Dean and Cheltenham with Fiona Macrae ACPAT, Fiona has been a physiotherapist since 2009 and qualified to do physiotherapy with animals in 2014. She will be available for appointments in Cinderford either on her own or alongside Iris. She also offers visits. She is contactable through Iris.

If you want to hear more about her work and how it combines with acupuncture and laser therapy this talk might be for you:
