Veterinary Referral & Reports

By law physiotherapists must obtain veterinary consent prior to assessing and treating an animal. Tracy is happy to contact your veterinarian to obtain consent and details of any relevant medical history.

A report summarising the main physiotherapy findings and recommendations is completed after the initial assessment. A copy of which is sent to the referring veterinarian and client.

Only by working as part of the multi-disciplinary team can physiotherapeutic intervention prove successful.
