Event description
Join us for an evening with Hannah Capon MA Vet MB MRCVS, founder of Canine Arthritis Management.

About this Event

Hannah’s empathetic, empowering and motivational talks on how to manage canine arthritis are suitable for dog owners and industry professionals, including those involved in dog welfare and care.

Are you a proactive pet owner?

Has your canine companion recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease or dysplasia?

If so… do you currently feel like you have received sufficient information to make informed decisions regarding the interventions, treatment and management of your canine companion’s condition?

Would you like to learn more about optimising your gold standard approach to managing the condition you are faced with?

There are so many treatment options, many of which profess positive effects, in the absence of supporting evidence of effectiveness. Consequently, this can result in confusion and poor decision making and a waste of resources, both financially and physically!

If you possess a universal desire to educate yourself on all of the evidence-based treatment options available for your loved one, then this one-off event is for you!

If you would like an answer any of these questions we have posed, please consider signing up to our 3-hour owners' workshop.

CAM director and founder, Hannah Capon MA Vet MB MRCVS, has been a small animal vet for 15 years and developed a passion for arthritis management 5 years ago. For the last 3 years, she has run a home-visiting service throughout Sussex, allowing arthritic dogs to be assessed in the calm and comfort of their own surroundings.

“During a very bad week in practice, I put two dogs to sleep in quick succession who had both gone off their back legs. They were mentally there but their bodies had given up. I suddenly realised that osteoarthritis needed to be approached much more thoroughly and at a much earlier stage in a dog’s life.”

Through a better understanding of chronic pain and how dogs show it, arthritis can be identified earlier, and treatment will be more successful. This will reduce our dog’s pain and perhaps the need for elective euthanasia due to chronic pain.

We have some generous giveaways which will be through a lucky ticket dip. Thanks to Ziwi Peak, Kronch NZ, Distripet, Raw Essentials, Healthy Pet Foods and Active Paws for their extremely generous donations.

Light refreshments provided on arrival.

This event is proudly sponsored and hosted by Your Whole Dog, and organised in association with Aqua Paws Hydrotherapy.

The ticket price is subsidised and cannot be refunded in the event you are unable to attend.
