It is not only humans that need massages and stretching — you pet pooch does too.
Catherine Gabbott, of Suppawtive Health Solutions, will be hosting three classes through Gold Coast City Council over the coming months, teaching locals how to massage and stretch their dogs safely. And while it might seem like a luxury, Ms Gabbott said keeping your pup supple meant fewer vet bills as they aged. It could even help manage arthritis.
“They are prone to the same health conditions … and sprains like us,” she said. “Safely stretching can reduce animal injuries, especially in active dogs. “We wouldn’t do a marathon without conditioning ourselves, warming up the muscles is similar in animals.”

My boy starting seeing Catherine 18 months ago, and has changed personalities since being regularly treated. Catherine has a plethora of knowledge in nutrition, behaviour, body condition, and the list continues... Catherine has been an absolute saint for my family, with all of my five dogs now seeking treatment. As a sporting family, Catherine is on speed dial. Thank you so much Catherine, we appreciate you 🐾💕
Catherine is great with the fur babies and does a wonderful job at relieving them from pain and tension throughout the body. We have used her a number of times for our boy and had fantastic results. Hes so much more comfortable in his skin
Thank you so much Catherine for your service to my girl this morning, from not being able to stand and walk around she is now up walking with ease and freedom she is smiling which I’ve not seen in a while😀 I would recommend you to everyone 🙏 Binka says thank you 🐶🙏😚 and we will see you in 4 weeks
Since starting treatment on my boy who had cruciate ligament surgery and currently has a tear in the other knee, he has gained more flexibility. His energy has increased, he is no longer needing medication on a daily basis and his muscle tone is not deteriorating. He is so excited when Catherine arrives, she definitely has magic hands.
Catherine is awesome! Catherine was recommended to me to treat my 13yo male Lab. After the first treatment, he was a different dog. He’s smiling & happy again. Catherine is now treating both my Labs. The change in both of them has been incredible. I can not recommend Catherine & her treatments enough & the puppies love her too...thank you Catherine
