In accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, it is a legal requirement for all veterinary physiotherapists to obtain veterinary consent prior to treatment of any animal. This does not necessarily mean that your pet needs to see the vet prior to a physiotherapy appointment. Please be ready to provide your veterinary surgeon's contact details upon making an appointment and we will contact them directly on your behalf.
