Animals get aches and pains just like humans do. Using the same Osteopathic approach that helps many people in discomfort, Christina applies these skills to helping animals recover from injury and maintain their overall mobility. Animal Osteopathy may be able to help your animal if they suffer from conditions such as:

  • Arthritis

  • General aches and pains

  • Sports injuries

Vet consent

In November 2020, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons issued the following guidance to all vets across the country:

'Musculoskeletal maintenance care for a healthy animal, for instance massage, does not require delegation by a veterinary surgeon . However, the animal must still be registered with a veterinary surgeon. Maintenance should cease and the owner of the animal should be asked to take their animal to a veterinary surgeon for clinical examination at the first sign that there may be any underlying injury, disease or pathology.'

 

As a consequence of this statement, permission to treat animals will only be sought where there is a known injury or disease that is related to the reason Christina has been asked to treat your animal. If permission is required, Christina will contact your vet in order to gain consent to treat your animal.

If you would like to book an appointment for your animal, please send us a message to arrange a mobile appointment with Christina. Appointments are usually offered on a Thursday and some Fridays. If you are unsure whether Animal Osteopathy would be suitable for your animal, we would be happy to have a chat to discuss your animal's needs.
