About Heather

Heather is an experienced animal behaviourist and has helped over 14,000 animals.  She has a special interest in animals with eating disorders, aggression and severe anxiety problems such as obsessive compulsive disorders, stereotypies and phobias.  She frequently works with owners or rescue centre managers who have animals with problems of such seriousness that euthanasia has been already considered.

Animals with Chronic Illnesses

Heather has advanced training in neuro-endocrinology (nerves and hormones) and pharmacology (drugs) and at Medivet (and other veterinary surgeries in the North) works closely with the veterinary team undertaking advanced analysis of the root causes of the long term disease.  In practical terms, she usually prescribes programmes based on advanced pain relief treatments and environmental changes which regularly lead to resolution or significant quality of life changes for the animal.

Examples of illnesses or conditions treated

  • Inflammatory problems – arthritis, abdominal pain such as gastritis, pancreatitis
  • Post-viral stress – situations where animals continually relapse with viral conditions and remain fatigued and lethargic (eg. competition horses)
  • Neurological conditions – epilepsy/seizures and self mutilation
  • Skin conditions – for instance where animals have been on long term steroids
  • Nutritional problems – malnutrition (rescue animals – starvation), obesity, anorexia (particularly cats), pica (eating of non-nutritional substances such as stones, electrical wiring), copraphagia (eating faeces)
