Does your dog have Arthritis?

If yes then you could help me with my Master’s Research Project looking into the current management options available for canine arthritis. If you can spare 10 minutes of your time to complete the survey linked below your help will be much appreciated.

Canine Osteoarthritis Survey

Welcome to Vitality Vet Physio

We believe that all animals should be allowed feel young, fit and healthy throughout their life. This is why we specialise in providing physiotherapy to the smaller (and sometimes not so small) fluffy and furry members of your family. From giving puppies the best start in life by advising on correct exercise to helping to support older pets through the golden years of their life. Rehabilitating pets after surgery or injury to keeping show, working and sporting dogs in top condition we are here for you. We believe that every stage of your pets life is important and no matter what they have been through we can help to provide you with information and support to meet your pets individual needs. No pet is the same which is why we work alongside your Veterinary Surgeon to ensure that every treatment is tailored to your pets needs. We know they are more than just pets. They are family!

– Coronavirus Update 4th January 2021 –

Following the governments most recent guidelines I would like to reassure you that Vitality Vet Physio is remaining open however there will be changes in place. Animal welfare continues to be our main priority and therefore we will continue to offer treatments to those animals who’s welfare will suffer without veterinary physiotherapy intervention. I am only visiting those pets whose welfare is at risk and asking any owners whose animals are in a stable condition or are having routine appointments to pause their sessions until February.

Appointments will continue to take place within your home with the necessary COVID precautions in place and each case will be risk assessed prior to your visit depending on how vulnerable your household members are (you can download a general risk assessment below).

If yourself or a household member have confirmed COVID-19, awaiting a test or test results, have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been told to self-isolating we will be unable to visit you until it is safe to do so.

If you would like to discuss how we can help your pet through this time then please contact me either by phone: 07972 438683 or email: hayley@vitalityvp.com.

Thank you for your continued support and patients through this time. Keep Safe

– About Me –

Hi I’m Hayley, Vet Physio and Director of Vitality Vet Physio.

Welcome to my website you have probably reached my website because a precious member of your family is in need of help. Firstly let me wish them a speedy recovery they already have the best support around them which is you! I am here to not only support your pet though this time but also to help support you.

I know the anxiety which you are going through. Not only have I experienced the ups and downs of pet ownership through 10 years of working as a vet nurse and 3 years as a vet physio but I have also been through these experiences with my own fur babies. I am here to help you on your journey together.

I found vet physio through my love of both animals and medicine. Physiotherapy is a different type of medicine but I believe that movement is medicine and that by correcting poor posture and movement physio can help to heal the body and prevent future injuries occurring. Which is why every pet young, old, fit or injured could benefit from physiotherapy.

My other passion is passing my knowledge on which is why if I am not treating animals you will find me lecturing at Moreton Morrell to vet physio students. This is also why I started my blog to share with everyone my life as a vet physio and experiences of the joy pet ownership.
