How Do We Work?

You can phone us directly to discuss your animal’s problem and we will then contact your vet to gain approval to see the animal. This is a standard legal requirement of our profession and our strong working relationship with the vets ensures this is a matter of routine. Alternatively your vet will refer your animal for physiotherapy and we will arrange to see the animal. We assess and treat at your yard, at your home or on vet’s premises – whatever is the most appropriate.
