‘The Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962 allows for the treatment of animals by physiotherapy, provided that the animal has first been seen by a veterinary surgeon who has diagnosed the condition and decided that it should be treated by physiotherapy under his/her direction’.
‘Physiotherapy’ is interpreted as including all kinds of manipulative therapy. It therefore includes osteopathy and chiropractic but would not, for example, include acupuncture or aromatherapy.
My membership of the McTimoney Animal Association guarantees my insurance, further details of this, along with my qualifications, are available upon request.
As a McTimoney Practitioner I only treat animals with the permission of the veterinary surgeon. This might be through direct referral from the vet or upon request of the owner. If you would like to refer an animal to me please complete the form below and I will contact you with further details.
Under normal circumstances I prefer to visit animals in their ‘home’ environment however treatment within your vet practice is available upon request. Additionally telephone consultations and written post-treatment reports are also available.
