Once I have received consent from the animal’s vet I will:

  • Consider the clinical history provided by the vet
  • Carry out a risk assessment during a phone call with the owner
  • Talk to the owner about the animal, their lifestyle, their concerns and goals
  • Agree safe treatment protocols with the owner
  • Observe the animal move in walk and trot (horses may also been seen ridden or lunged)
  • Assess conformation, musculoskeletal symmetry and soft tissue tone
  • Assess joint range of motion and functional movement
  • Devise a treatment plan

I will try to arrange an appointment to suit your schedule, although this may be challenging at short notice. I will see horses at their normal yard and dogs can be treated in their own home, or at my clinic. I take a patient-centred approach, working within the limits of what that animal is comfortable with, so I am flexible and adaptable to meet the patient’s needs.  

Veterinary Physiotherapy is often covered by pet insurance policies and I am happy to help with completion of claim forms if needed. 

My clinic is based in Bierton, Bucks (near Aylesbury) and I cover an area including parts of Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.

If the treatment plan includes canine hydrotherapy, I am able to maintain continuity of care through referral to Wendover Heights Veterinary Centre's Canine Rehabilitation service, where I run three clinics each week, including hydrotherapy using an underwater treadmill.

Please remember that veterinary consent is legally required before a therapist can treat your animal
