The Veterinary Surgeons Exemption Order (2015) details that veterinary physiotherapy may only be carried out by a qualified practitioner once a referral form has been filled out by the Veterinary Surgeon responsible for the treatment of your animal.
This amendment was made to the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, which details that animals should be treated only by those persons who are qualified to do so.
Although Veterinary Physiotherapy is considered a non-invasive form of treatment, it is important for a Veterinary Surgeon to agree to this form of treatment in case there are specific conditions or medications that determine Physiotherapy unsuitable.
Before I am able to treat your animal, I do require the Veterinary Referral form to be completed by your referring Veterinary Surgeon, along with the attachment of your animals clinical history and relevant information. The download button below will allow you access to the referral form which should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively please contact me either by phone or email and I can contact your Veterinary Surgeon on your behalf.
