Lorren Barham is the owner and operator of the hydro underwater treadmill and therapist in the pool, manager of Pet Wellness Worx and loving mom of not one, not two, but FOUR four-legged kids. Not to mention her parrot Gizmo, who chatters all day…
Lorren understands, better than most, the important role of post-surgery rehabilitation, as well as the recovery techniques used to treat auto immune disorders, including degenerative myelopathy, neurological spinal prolapse and hip dysplasia, because her own clan of pooches has suffered from all of the above.
Lorren realized that it was imperative to provide all these forms of treatment at one location. With the benefits of holistic care in mind, she decided to follow her passion and start Pet Wellness Worx. Well aware of the important role that healing, rehab and wellness play in creating a better quality of life for pets, she decided to spread the love. Now pet lovers have access to all these specialized services under one roof!
With her corporate background, and her love for animals, she decided to follow her heart and passion, and link her profession to pet care. “I love showing my Frenchies, and prior to them, my boxers, in the breed ring. I also love training on a Saturday in Pinelands at Cape Province Dog Club with Boris and on a Sunday in Milnerton at Cape Handlers Dog Club with Busta. I enjoy doing Tellington TTouch Therapy on my bird as well.”
Lorren was trained in the UK at Greyfriars Veterinary Rehabilitation and Hydrotherapy Centre and has acquired invaluable techniques for recovery and rehabilitation in water. Typical cases were post-injury, post-surgical, weight-management, geriatrics and convalescence. She has a three year National Diploma in Agricultural Management, Level 1 & 2 Hills & Level 1-4 Royal Canine Veterinary Nutrition Advisor certificates and has completed her Caninology Inc USA Certified Canine Body Worker course.
Lorren strives to help animals with obesity-related conditions, by using exercise on the underwater treadmill. She also works with canine athletes for pre-event conditioning, using the most advanced companion animal rehabilitation equipment in the industry.
Lorren is a highly motivated team player who combines initiative with immense passion and empathy for canines. She is committed to providing the highest quality care for her patients
