WALKABOUT HARNESSES was founded by Cathy Erwin in 1986
to provide safe and effective products to help
rehabilitate physically challenged dogs and cats.
Cathy has worked in the veterinary field since the age of 15.
In 1982, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in animal physiology. In 1993 she studied Physical Therapy at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific
in order to gain insight in applying similar rehabilitative techniques on dogs and cats that are practiced on people.
Having worked for many years as the head of Surgery at the Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital, many studies were conducted with dogs that were rehabilitated post-op with The Walkabout and Walkabelly harness products. These studies showed proper function was restored to patients sooner when using these walking aids and support harnesses while in rehab.
With 30 years
experience in the veterinary field, Cathy brings her knowledge
and experience to this business, which is unparalleled by others.
