Vet nursing services
Being able to offer remote/in-home vet nursing services means your pet gets the care they need in a fear-free environment without having to come into the clinic.
Rehabilitation is an extremely important process for pets post surgery or injury. Offering this service in your own home makes it much more accessible.
I offer a very holistic approach to treating. Naturopathy includes different modalities such as homeopathy, herbal medicine, flower essences, mineral therapy, massage and nutrition.
In -home fear-free grooming and nail trimming is one of my most popular services. I don't use any restraints or harnesses and help your animal to overcome any fears they may have.
To educate and encourage more pet owners to advocate for holistic healthcare for their pets, so they can live a happier, healthier and longer life.
Your pet, is my pet.
About Dr. Roz Rowen.
The natural vet nurse
My love for animals and natural medicine stems from my childhood. I grew up with animals on different farms my parents lived on and given the remoteness of where we lived, we often had to find natural ways to treat ailments for our animals. When I was 13, I asked my parents to do an animal therapies course, and began treating family and friends' animals for pocket money with great success. I went on to follow another passion at university, human interaction and communication to which I hold a PhD among other teaching and education qualifications. In understanding exactly how people interact I started to see the role of animals in this and was drawn back to my love of natural therapies and animals, when I rescued Syd in 2016 and then Trevor in 2018. These dogs had been written off by many animal practitioners, and I set out on a journey to learn more about the wonderful world of animals and ways we can communicate and work with them to help them heal and thrive in the most positive, natural and humane ways. I advocate for giving animals choice and freedom when they are in my care. All animals and their humans are treated like family!
Just wanted to touch base & update on Pendles... He is doing amazing. The difference in him is incredible. he is super chilled at home, sleeping much better through the night, relaxing during the day, he's been so calm with mu mums dogs, not in their faces. Thank you!
