“Beth was amazing with my border collie, Coco, who can be quite shy around new people. Beth worked with Cacao to help settle her down and be comfortable in her new surroundings and by the end she was relaxed and happily enjoying the treatment, definitely did not want to leave. I would highly recommend Beth!”

How often should my dog have a physiotherapy appointment?
Frequency of treatment varies between each case. A treatment plan can be devised to suit you as an owner and the severity of the condition being treated.
Do I need veterinary referral prior to treatment by a veterinary physiotherapist?
The recent changes made by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) 2020 states that if your dog is currently being treated by a vet for injury, disease or pathology veterinary consent is required. However, veterinary consent is not required for maintenance care.
What is included in a veterinary physiotherapy session?
The session will start off with a discussion on the dogs history and any problems you are currently having. This is then followed by a thorough static, dynamic and palpation assessment. Treatment is then individualised dependant on the findings and history and may include manual therapy, use of electrotherapies and exercise prescription.
Does insurance cover veterinary physiotherapy?
Yes, most insurance companies will cover the cost of veterinary physiotherapy. However it is worth contacting your insurance provider prior to treatment to check what your policy covers.
