Millie is a fully qualified, fully insured member of IRVAP who works under the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966). This states that veterinary consent must be obtained prior to treating any animal. A phone call to your vet is usually sufficient, which is then followed by a consent form that is needed prior to treatment. Please use the link below to download the referral form and take it to your vet for them to fill in and sign. You are required to make sure that you have the form signed and ready in time for your first appointment.
What To Expect
Your physiotherapy sessions will include a thorough assessment of your animal's condition, taking history from you as the owner, assessing their static posture, movement in different gaits, range of motion of joints and a general feel for muscle tone with a hands on palpation. Once any areas that need addressing have been identified, treatment will begin. This will include a mixture of manual techniques such as massage, combined with complementing electotherapies. This may be followed on with some exercise prescription that I will work through with you so that you feel confident and comfortable with carrying out the exercises when I have left. I shall type up and email you a home exercise prescription programme for you to follow between treatments. Should it be required, further physiotherapy sessions can be discussed including end goals and an approximation of the duration of treatments to reach these goals. You must be available throughout the treatment and be able to handle and lead (or have someone who can) the animal in varying gaits for the gait assessment.

A discount may be available for appointments made back to back for two or more animals at the same yard or home. I am happy to discuss this with you at the time of booking. For cases requiring long-term, frequent physiotherapy, I am happy to discuss an individual pricing structure with you.
Prices are based on travel within a 15 mile radius of Burnham On Sea, Somerset. If travel outside this area is required then an additional charge will be applied, please get in touch for details.
Payment for treatment sessions is to be made in full at the time of each treatment, including those that will be claimed back from an insurance company. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or BACs transfer.
Many insurance companies cover veterinary physiotherapy treatments and if your pet is insured, you may be able to claim back the cost of treatments. It is your responsibility to liaise with your insurance company to determine if this is the case. Payment will still be due at each appointment, I will provide a receipt should you be needing to claim back the cost from your insurance company.
If you would like to get in touch about booking an appointment or for more information about the services I provide, please feel free to call, text or send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
