Lynn is an avid dog lover and they have been an integral part of her life. She has 6 dogs of her own; two golden retrievers and four adopted mongrels. She has gone as far as Taipei to rescue a stray back home. All her rescued strays come with all sorts of different physical and medical conditions. One of her golden retriever, Ralph who is 12 years of age, suffered from cancer a few years ago. With her constant tender loving care, unwavering faith and unlimited patience, all her dogs have recovered slowly and stealthily.
However as Ralph grows with age, arthritis starts to set in. As a firm believer of hydrotherapy, she truly believes the benefits of hydrotherapy and has witnessed first hand how it has not only helped him to regain his muscle strength, fitness and stamina, it has also alleviated his joint pain and helped with his weight loss. Now he no longer has to struggle to stand or suffer from joint pain in silence. He can get up much quicker and even do a short sprint when he wants to play.
Lynn is trained in UK in November 2012 and obtained her Certificate in Hydrotherapy for small animals.
When Sharon wanted to bring back her now 13-year old Pomeranian from South America many years ago, a friend asked her why not leave the dog behind and just retain happy memories of him as a young and healthy dog, instead of watching him grow old and weak one day. She totally disagreed with that as she believes that we owe our furry best friends the courage, commitment and love it takes to walk beside them not just in their best years, but also in their most difficult ones.
Thus Sharon knew that she had found her calling when she first worked in CWRC in 2014 and saw firsthand the benefits of hydrotherapy in improving the mobility, health and life of many beloved dogs. Now she happily juggles her time between CWRC and being "mum" to 4 audacious little Pomeranians back home.
While her original degree was in law, Sharon also has a Diploma in Veterinary Technology (with Merit). She has obtained both her Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals as well as her Level 3 Diploma in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals from the UK.
Diana was studying in Temasek Polytechnic for a diploma unrelated to canine rehabilitation when she first started working at Canine Wellness in 2014. Despite the differences in her studies, she has found fulfilment in the animal wellness industry after seeing how hydrotherapy can improve the quality of life of both dogs and owners. Following graduation in early 2018, Diana continued her passion as a Canine Hydrotherapist in Canine Wellness as her first full time job. Through out the years in Canine Wellness, she has gained many invaluable experiences and received positive feedbacks from clients for her genuine care and devotion to the patient.
Diana has a soft spot for disabled animal. She immersed herself into providing supportive care for two disabled bunnies, Summer and Winter. They were her pride and joy but like all pet owners, she experienced grief. The lost of her beloved bunnies became a motivation for Diana to work hard towards her goal; to be able to give hope and improve the lives of disabled animals.
Outside of work, Diana loves to brainstorm on interesting food ideas and whipping up creative yet nutritious dishes.
Fuelled by his passion for animals since young, Andy enjoys working with animals and has been working at Canine Wellness Rehab Centre since 2012. He has been loyal to this industry because of his strong belief in using the natural approach instead of the prolonged use of drugs due to its side effects.
He believes that this industry chose him as much as he chose it because of his expressed interest in providing competent and compassionate care for the dogs. Seeing his efforts come through when the dogs who were once immobile, are now able to run and jump with joy and the smiles of the owner's face every time they talk about the amazing recovery of their fur kids, are what strengthens his desire to continue to help and improve the quality of their lives. He also sees CWRC as a place where he can learn and gain practical experiences to become a more sophisticated animal physiotherapist.
Besides rehabilitation work, he will devote his free time in nursing injured stray animals back to health. It brings him a immense sense of satisfaction as he is able to extend a helping hand to these injured animals which are usually ignored by the general public. To be able to further pursue his passion on animals' wellness and rehabilitation is what he will always look forward to.
Andy graduated from Diploma in Veterinary Technology at Temasek Polytechnic 2016 and went on to serve his National Service as an Infantry officer from 2016 to 2018. He is currently pursuing his Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy in The College of Animal Physiotherapy.
