Brook Barn Canine Rehabilitation
A centre that combines science, technology and clinical reasoning with compassion & care
About Hannah Meeker & Brook Barn
The setting up of Brook Barn Canine Rehabilitation has enabled me to realise my vision of a centre that provides a combination of treatment options under one roof. This enables me to provide the optimal rehabilitation / treatment plan for your dog: a centre that combines science, technology and clinical reasoning with compassion and care.
I have been working with dogs for the past 5 years. Prior to this I have been a human health and fitness specialist and ran my own business.
I am a full member of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association (CHA) and Canine Massage Guild (CMG). Continued membership requires a minimum of 25 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) each year to ensure my skills are up to date. I am also in the latter stages of a Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy and intend on offering this service soon.
I have also had extensive first-hand experience with my own dogs and can appreciate and empathise with how daunting and emotional the rehabilitation process can be.
Pragmatic Approach to Treatment
My approach is a pragmatic and flexible one:
For example, it may be that your dog is scheduled for a session in the hydrotherapy treadmill, but that the health check completed prior to any session highlights significant muscular tension.
We can then opt for a clinical massage treatment during this session instead, reducing muscular tension rather than exacerbating it.
For me it’s about working together to achieve the best possible outcome.
