We are able to offer Physiotherapy sessions with Kat Clarke who works with both dogs & horses in the Bristol area.

Kat has completed a Masters Degree in Veterinary Physiotherapy in 2016, passing with Distinction following her project in Canine rehabilitation techniques.
Physiotherapy for dogs can be useful for a variety of conditions; musculoskeletal injury/strains, obesity, osteoarthritis, Orthopaedic conditions – before or after surgery, Neurological conditions – before or after surgery and for sporting performance issues.
Kat can help with pain management through lifestyle advice and electrotherapy use, she can help restore or maintain range of movement, strength, walking pattern and function.
Techniques she has used include, electrotherapy, soft tissue release/massage, bony mobilisation/manipulation and exercise prescription to aid movement, strength, balance and endurance. Kat also refers onto hydrotherapy centres if she feels this will be the most effective management for the dog.
Kat will always seek Veterinary consent prior to assessment and treatment of an animal, this is in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeon Act. She currently sees clients in their own home making it less stressful for the dog.
