All consultations will be £40.
Discounts may be available for multiple sessions paid for in advance or owners with several dogs.
A consultation lasts approximately one to one and a half hours. A static and dynamic assessment takes place to look for stiffness and tension in muscles. Massage and appropriate stretch techniques are then applied.
Exercises and tips are given to the owner to help improve flexibility.
All consultations will require a veterinary permission form as part of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966.
The treatment of animals in the UK is controlled by the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966.
This Acts main aim is to prevent lay persons from practicing veterinary surgery which is defined as:
a) The diagnosis of diseases in, and injuries to, animals including tests performed on animals for diagnostic purposes;
b) The giving of advice based upon such a diagnosis;
c) The medical or surgical treatment of animals;
d) The performance of surgical operations upon animals.
Massage is covered under the Exemption Order 1962 as a manipulative therapy. I abide by a, b, c, & d and always work with veterinary approval, only address minor ailments or behavioral problems, DO NOT diagnose and treat.
Please download the Veterinary Permission Form and ask your Vet to sign and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
