SUPPORTING YOUR DOG, AND SUPPORTING YOU

Our Distance Support Programme

Over the last 2 years we have developed a Galen Myotherapy Distance Support Programme, that incorporates our 20 years of experience, to provide a supported ‘owner at-home’ treatment programme.

"Through the programme Flynn’s tail is no longer stiff, and he is sleeping on his side more. The vet has said he is doing better in terms of pain, and he is putting on a little weight which he needed to. Thank you so much!’
~ Carolyn Day, Devon

This programme enables 1:1 professional guidance for you as an owner, to enable you to help your dog. You will be supported remotely, through the programme, by your own dedicated, experienced Galen Myotherapist.



This programme was originally designed for owners who were not geographically close to a Galen Myotherapist and was inspired by our founder Julia Robertson travels and meeting dog owners from across the globe, who were wanting help for their dogs.

With the Covid-19 pandemic this programme is needed more than ever to help dogs who are not able to see their normal treatment provider. This does not replace veterinary care but is a tool to support your dog’s muscular health.

What we can help with


Our Distance Support Programme can help with many conditions and situations, including:

  • Dogs slowing down
  • Reluctance to be active
  • Stiffness
  • Ongoing lameness
  • Intermittent lameness following veterinary consultation
  • The effects of arthritis (treating the muscular compensatory discomfort)
  • Underlying conditions, hip dysplasia
  • Compensatory issues
  • ‘Tripawd’ dogs (Three-legged dogs)
  • Some behavioural problems, excessive licking of feet/body/ chewing/itching

Practically every lameness in a dog will be from a muscular problem and most of the conditions we see are as a result of underlying conditions, old injuries or repetitive strains.
‘Julia and Galen were a catalyst in the creation of Canine Arthritis Management (CAM). Through doing the Galen Myotherapy diploma, my eyes were opened to the physical and emotional signs of pain and discomfort we see in our dogs. It also opened my mind to improved ways to manage it. I am so pleased to see that they have created a foundation course for owners and also a distance support programme that gives owners support and valuable information about how they can help their dogs. Galen says they "enrich the lives of dogs" they really do!’

DISTANCE SUPPORT PROGRAMME

How it works


You will be sent a form to complete, asking you for specific photos and videos of your dog, these will form a major part of your Galen Myotherapist’s assessment.

You will also be asked to complete our Galen Comfort Scale©, which is a scale that we have developed from years of experience, identifying behavioural and physical changes that relate to a dogs physical and muscular health. This information is critical for the Myotherapist to be able to assess your dog, as well as a tool for measuring improvement in your dog’s long term health and well-being. After you have returned the completed forms, videos and photos to your dedicated Galen Myotherapist, they will then be fully assessed. Your dog’s Galen Comfort Scale© will also be analysed to plot your dog's current state of comfort. This will also give valuable information to track their changes and recovery through everyday observations.

The full assessment report of your dog will then be sent to you. It will have literally ‘nose to tail’ assessment on your dog’s posture and loading, explaining how it could relate to any issue/s they may have and you are observing.

The report will demonstrate pictorial ‘comparisons’, giving you a very clear insight into how, and what, we are basing our evaluations. It will be totally specific to your dog; giving clear, functional and practical information and advice, for you to incorporate and use to support the health and wellbeing of your dog.

Within the report will be recommendations and clearly instructed videos on how and where to perform three safe and highly effective techniques. The videos will introduce and guide you through how you can integrate Galen’s Positive P.A.C.T.®, choice led treatment into your own treatment.

As well as other recommendations or ideas about how possibly, some environmental changes could also help your dog. The programme also includes a 6 week follow up for you to receive feedback on your application and any questions you may have to your dedicated Galen Myotherapist professional.
