Sharon Allen is the Hydrotherapist at Brentknoll Vets in Worcester.
Sharon qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1998, she initially joined the Brentknoll team as a Vet nurse in 2007, however her passion for rehabilitation lead her to pursue a career as a qualified animal hydrotherapist.
“I have an amazing job, I get to have fun with dogs that really enjoy swimming and my job is extremely rewarding. I meet dogs that need careful rehab following injury, surgery, chronic disease or those that require weight management; I really enjoy watching them improve from week to week and gradually return to normal health. Sometimes I see dogs that are initially nervous in the water, it’s great to help them become confident swimmers and it really brings them out of their shells. Most of my swimmers are always happy to come to the practice and are excited when sitting in the waiting room.”
I am really excited to be back and will be working closely with the Vets and Paula from our Manipulation Clinics to help animals in Post-Op recovery and providing great fun sessions for those dogs just wanting to let off some steam.
In her spare time Sharon is mum to her two young children and enjoys keeping fit and active especially with swimming, cycling and running. Her family spend time together on camping holidays in the French Alps and cycling to the top of mountains always gives her a buzz of excitement.
