Pets: The Real Winners During Self-Isolation at Myotherapy & Allied Health

For most of us, it has been an awfully long two months in self-isolation. At least we think so at Myotherapy & Allied Health, which is why we cannot wait to see all our patients!

However, for our pets this comment could not be any further from the truth! For two months now our little superstars have been lapping up the attention, quite literally. No longer do they have to sit at the front mat looking out the window wondering when Mum & Dad will be home. No longer do they need to sleep all day waiting until 5.30pm to rush inside and jump all over the furniture to unleash their excitement.

Self-isolation for our pets has been like winning Division One in the lottery. Multiple walks EVERY day, extra long cuddle time, no loss of attention which would otherwise be consumed by visitors at the door. Not to mention the silly ways we act around our pets, and high pitch voices we use to get their attention (Yes you know exactly what I am talking about! The kinds of voices or acts you put on with your pet that you hope to God none of your friends or family ever hear)!

And if you have been lazy like me, then they are getting paid treats for sitting on their beds and not harassing Mum and Dad whilst they are working in the office or at the dining table. But without our little cherubs, I am sure we can all agree that the two months of self-isolation would have been near impossible to get through and the world of imaginary friends would have become very populated.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the clinic in the weeks and months ahead. Remember “It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than to be absolutely boring” – Marilyn Monroe
