Animal Help

“My young collie had a severe travel sickness and a phobia of cars …now I have a non-car sick dog that jumps in the car of her own free will!”


“We had always classed Bob as an unaffectionate horse … but now he will trot up to me in the field and rest his head on me while I stroke him.”

Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the information out there about your animal’s health? Well, I’m Rachel Windsor-Knott of MyAnimalMatters, and once upon a time, that’s exactly where I was too.

Helping your animal

So, I started working with animals. Before long I embarked on a dazzling journey of research and study. I’m so happy to be able to say that I learned how to help and empower you and your animal towards:

  • Greater vitality
  • Calmer behaviour
  • Optimum health
  • A deeper connection between you and your animal

How? By listening to your animal’s own choices.

During a Botanical Self-Healing session, nothing is prescribed or administered.   Natural botanical remedies are simply gently offered.

I can tell you from experience that there’s nothing lovelier than seeing your animal light up, when he or she finds just what their body, mind or soul has been looking for.


Sophie’s Legacy

7 years ago, I said good-bye to my beautiful Sophie.

The 3-legged Weimeraner I adopted from Battersea Dogs Home.

She was a strong, kind, smart and gentle matriarch that I fell deeply in love with and would have done anything for.

But, I felt at a loss and powerless to help her at times as I knew, despite being on pain meds from the vet, she was uncomfortable.  She used to eat candles and coal yet I didn’t recognise that she was trying to heal herself.

In 2009, she collapsed and couldn’t lift herself up. She had become weaker very quickly and this was the last straw.  We made the very difficult decision to put her to sleep as we knew of no other way to help.

That day before the vet came around, our 2 dogs lay with Sophie peacefully all day as they knew what was going to happen.  It was the hardest day of my life but also a massive turning point.

Sophie is the reason and the driving force behind my passion for giving animals a voice and the opportunity to speak up about their needs.

Her light continues to shine brightly and inspire and guide me wherever I go.
