Surrey Veterinary Physiotherapy

Veterinary Physiotherapy is one of the fastest growing veterinary sectors, and a very popular career choice. There are several routes into Veterinary Physiotherapy, some of which are long, and intense, and demand complete dedication from anyone embarking on this path - training as a veterinary physiotherapist can take over six years of hard graft;

 

The route you choose to take depends very much on your interests. Those who are interested in treating humans must qualify in human physiotherapy before taking post graduate qualifications in Veterinary Physiotherapy. For me, and many others, whose interests lie solely in the veterinary field it is possible to specialise in Animal Physiotherapy from the outset.  I studied animal science at an undergraduate level which afforded  me an excellent understanding of veterinary anatomy, physiology, nutrition, and husbandry amongst other subjects, which can have a confounding effect on the patient. Learning the science and application of physiotherapy subsequently at a Masters level provides a huge degree of rigour and critical thinking. I took an MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy at Harper Adams University (HAU).

 

Applications for places on the HAU MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy course for those who have an animal science background are hotly contended, with places oversubscribed by six times the number of applicants to places. Those accepted are likely to hold post graduate qualifications in allied fields, and to have significant animal experience. Many are vets themselves. I entered this route with a Bsc(Hons), a Post Graduate Diploma and my BHSAI.

 

Steps are afoot to develop a register of Veterinary Physiotherapists, containing details of those who have met levels of knowledge and practical ability required to treat animals in a safe and effective way. In the meantime don’t be afraid to ask your therapist what their background and qualifications are before using their services.

Sadly I am unable to take work-experience students due to the constraints of my insurance policy.
