A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

 

My passion for animals began when I was very young and I have always wanted to work with and 'fix' them. I began horse riding as soon as I could walk and through the years I have rescued many animals. My very first job was as a Saturday groom at a livery yard and as soon as I was old enough I was lucky enough to get an afterschool/Saturday job at a Veterinary Practice.

After my A Levels I proceeded to gain a BSc(Hons) in Animal Science. This degree provided me with an excellent knowledge of nutrition, behaviour and anatomy  but also provided a stepping stone to the exciting opportunity to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy. While studying my PGDip I returned work in a Veterinary practice as an Animal Nursing Assistant. This role provided me valuable time in practice and helped to create a deeper understanding of many medical and surgical procedures of small animals.

NAVP

I am proud to say I am a member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP). The NAVP is widely recognised for high standards of veterinary physiotherapy in both equine and companion animal care.

To become a member of the NAVP you have to be qualified up to level 7 ensuring a wide scientific knowledge as well as a clinical understanding. It is also a requirement that all members have appropriate insurance and complete Continued Professional Development (CPD) every year so members are kept up to date with the latest advancements in the field.

All members follow a code of conduct and current legislation, this means treatment must be carried out under the supervision of a Veterinary Surgeon. This ensures your companion receives the highest standard of care.
