Why choose a Chartered Veterinary Physio?

To become a chartered vet physio you must have completed your BSc Hons in physiotherapy and be registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC). This means the professional you are dealing with has to ensure they keep their qualifications up to date and comply to set standards. To join the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal therapy (ACPAT). The individual must be a chartered physio who has completed and approved an accredited ACPAT course. It is crucial that you check the qualifications of any therapist treating your animal. We are required by the law to gain consent of the veterinary surgeon prior to treating your animal.

Why Physoitherapy?

  • Animal Physiotherapy whether for dogs, cats or horses helps to restore movement and function when an animal is affected by injury, illness or disability.
  • At the core is the owners involvement in their animal’s care, through education, awareness and participation in their treatment.
