What animals do you treat?

The majority of my work is with horses and dogs, however many other animals can benefit from physiotherapy and I am always happy to help an animal in need. Please contact me for more information or to discuss specific requests regarding other species. 

Do I need vet referral/consent for my animal to receive physiotherapy?

 All animals presented for physiotherapy must have received veterinary consent prior to treatment. 

Request a referral form using the form to the right

Can you treat a lame horse?

Any animal that is lame and has not received veterinary consent for physiotherapy cannot be treated with physiotherapy. A vet must have seen the animal for the current condition and must consent to physiotherapy and refer the animal for treatment.

Will my insurance cover physiotherapy?

 If physiotherapy has been recommended by a vet, it is usually covered by your insurance company. Contact your insurance provider prior to treatment to check. 

How long does a session last?

Equine sessions can take around 1-1.5 hours but can sometimes take longer depending on individual circumstances.

Canine sessions can take around 30 mins to 1 hour but may last longer depending on individual circumstances.
