Catherine O'Driscoll Memorial

Catherine O’Driscoll founded Canine Health Concern in 1994 and devoted the rest of her life to researching and writing about how the lives of our dogs could be improved. She was on a mission to get the information out to as many dog guardians as possible. 

Catherine put on great talks and workshops - working tirelessly to change people’s thinking. She wrote for the Dog Press and published several bestselling books – What Vets Don’t Tell You about Vaccines, Shock to The System, Tip of The Needle and The Real Epidemic.

She changed the lives of many dogs for the better and so many guardians are eternally grateful for what Catherine had shown them through her work.

Since 2019 Catherine has been suffering from Motor Neuron Disease and despite its progression she has remained defiant and resilient, and thoroughly beautiful and the most incredible human being.

Sadly in the early hours of Thursday 12th November 2020 she passed away.

Catherine’s heart and soul started CHC and her wish is that Rob her husband will continue and see it flourish.

If you would like to make a donation in Catherine’s memory – you can do it here and all the money will go into keeping CHC going.

Thank you.
