A HELENSBURGH business is up for a top prize in the 2020 Scottish Pet Awards – but time is fast running out to cast your vote.

Clyde Canine Massage, run by Kirsty Coyle, has been nominated for Best Pet Business of the Year in the annual awards – but the deadline for the public's votes is this Thursday, November 19.

Kirsty has been qualified and practising since 2017, and set up her business – which, though based in Helensburgh, covers the whole of greater Glasgow and the west of Scotland – with help from Business Gateway Argyll and Bute.

Clinical canine massage helps with the rehabilitation of dogs who have suffered soft tissue injuries, and can be used in the ongoing management of conditions such as arthritis and hip or elbow dysplasia.

Kirsty said: "Many of us don’t think twice about getting a massage to ease away our own aches and pains, and I really want it to be as commonplace for us to seek out this therapy for our dogs."
