Physio 4 Animals is a service provided by Melanie Haines Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapist working in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area. As a Chartered Physiotherapist she is regulated by the Chartered society of Physiotherapist (CSP), The health Professional Council (HPC) and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Physiotherapy (ACPAT).
"I work with both large and small animals running clinics in several vets practices as well as do home visits to animals at their owners homes or where horses are stabled. My small animal work is based mainly at Paws4 hydrotherapy, Toton and Dovecote veterinary hospital, Castle donington. I have access to the use of both an Underwater treadmill and a pool to carry out Hydrotherapy if this is judged to be suitable for your animal. I work along side the animal's veterinary care to help rehabilitate animals with a variety of Neurological, Orthopaedic and Degenerative conditions, as well as treating horses and dogs with competition or performance problems."
Each animal is assessed as an individual and all treatment plans are tailored to their needs dependent on their problem and personality. You can find more information about whether physiotherapy may help your animal on this website, or feel free to phone Melanie for an informal chat about your animal.
Costs vary dependent on the type of animal, location that it is seen and the treatment plan. If your animal is insured then most insurance companies will cover the cost of physiotherapy dependent on your policy.
Please phone to discuss your animal and get more information about the cost.
