Hi everyone!

It's that time of year again, when we should all take time to put pen to paper and pass on our greetings and news of the year past.

Winter seems to have come at last and with it some rain and frost – which I raised in the County Press as being a problem for many horse owners because of the new road surfaces. I have seen more horses in the last three months who have slipped and gone down on the road than I did in the last 20 years of chiropractic practice on the Island.

The issue has been taken up by the Bridleways Group and I wholly support their fight as this issue affects not only horse and rider but could cause a major traffic incident if someone drives round a corner at speed and finds a fallen horse spread across the road. Please stay safe this winter!

My year has been taken up with representing the chiropractic profession through the two roles I hold as the Chair of the Animal Group of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association and Director of the Royal College of Chiropractors Animal Faculty, at the forefront of national discussions with Government about forthcoming changes in legislation.

This has involved me travelling to vet conferences and shows, and giving lectures to vets and vet students and working with leadership colleagues in osteopathy and physiotherapy. Whilst productive so far, this has been exhausting and time-consuming, working around my busy practice – and has been the reason why my communications this year have been limited.

In the clinic I have seen everything from Mikey the Bearded Dragon to 18hh show-jumpers and everything in between. It has been a joy to see so many recoveries and very sad to have lost a few of the older patients. The many cats and dogs lift my spirits every time with their welcome (even if it is just for a piece of cheese!). The dogs we have started on raw meaty bones through Give-Your-Dog-A-Bone have thrived, which makes the hard work of preparing it all worthwhile.

I would like to thank all my patients – both human and animal – for their continued support through 2014. I wish you a very happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you all again in 2015. Lots of love, Vav.
