Referrals

Our centre is run by very experienced therapists with knowledge of rehabilitating a number of challenging cases. If you are unsure about which therapy a particular case requires feel free to contact us to discuss further. 

We will never work with a case without a referral from a MRCVS veterinary surgeon and a full clinical history where required. Once we are treating a case, we will keep you updated with reports throughout the rehabilitation process on the progress of your case and may call you from time to time for advice on further veterinary treatment that a case may require. If you have any questions after receiving a report from us, do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Case advice and locum work:

We also provide advice for cases that you may have and our physiotherapist, is available to visit your practice to provide physiotherapy treatment and advice. Feel free to email or call us for more information.

We are also available to provide CPD/training on rehabilitation for local practices.
