Covid-19 Temporary Closure…

Hi All

After keeping a close eye on all of the daily Covid-19 updates, looking at the new case numbers and trends, and having a few difficult discussions, it’s with a heavy heart that I have made the decision to close Paw Vida for the time being.

Although as a solo mobile therapist, I’m not on the list of enforced business closures yet and my work is largely on a one to one basis and social distancing with owners could be achieved, Canine Massage is not classed as essential social contact. And while I ensure neither myself or my dog owners have the symptoms and have stringent hygiene and cross contamination measures in place, with more information coming out each day, I can no longer be sure that one of us hasn’t been exposed and are carrying the virus, or that the virus isn’t being transmitted via my clothes or equipment carry cases and bags etc that I’m bringing into your home.

After spending many years working so hard, day and night, to build up what is now a very busy and successful small business, to have to close it virtually overnight is a very hard pill to swallow. However, it is the right thing to do in order to protect you, me, and our families at this difficult time.

To all my amazingly loyal clients/friends who have supported me over the last six years and who have continued to support me over the last couple of weeks, I cannot thank you enough. Over the next few days, I will be contacting everyone who is still booked in over the coming few weeks. Obviously I have no idea of the time scale on this and how long I will need to remain closed. It’s a very odd feeling to say the least.

So to end, normal service WILL resume as soon as it is safe to do so, and I hope you lovely lot will also return to support Paw Vida when this time comes. I will miss being covered in dog hair and being licked to within an inch of my life by some! 🤣 In the meantime, I will be making memories with my own furbaby.

Stay safe, keep well and let’s all follow the guidelines so we can get through this nightmare quicker.

See you on the other side




Another happy customer…

“Sally had been diagnosed with a suspected cruciate ligament injury and had been suffering with lameness for several months. Lindsay came recommended by the hydrotherapist working with Sally and after just two sessions, I couldn’t believe the difference! There had been a surprising improvement in Sally’s mobility and I also noticed that her mood had lifted and she seemed happier in herself. Even her hydrotherapist could see a notable difference in the pool and was very pleased with the results. I will definitely be booking Sally in for further massage with Lindsay!” Nicola, Ammerdown
