TAS Country : April 26th 2012
16 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 27, 2012 Best KAROLIN MacGREGOR IF your fluffy, finned or four- legged friends have a problem, then Belinda Atkinson from Belinda's Natural Animal Therapies may have something that could help. Mrs Atkinson started her animal care business in 2008 after using natural and homeo- pathic remedies on her own animals for many years. ''I got sick of seeing animals being put down for things that I could help fix,'' she said. ''I've always loved animals and I love helping them. It's very rewarding.'' Mrs Atkinson said more horse and pet owners were looking for safe alternatives when it came to their animals' health care. ''A lot of the homeopathic treatments I use can work really well alongside traditional veter- inary treatments, especially when it comes to things like after-surgery care and prevent- ing infection,'' she said. Mrs Atkinson will be at Ag- fest this year for the second time 2012 Top riders unite for show TOP PERFORMERS: Geoff Harvey and Renegade. HORSE PLAY: Ron Morgan and Charlie the palomino.
