About

My interest in veterinary physiotherapy was first sparked when my own horse was diagnosed with Sacroiliac dysfunction. It was at this point that I discovered the profession and I was determined to have a career in the industry. I have since graduated from Writtle university college with a masters degree in veterinary physiotherapy (MVetPhys). I am also  a certified and insured Equinology equine Bodyworker (EEBW) and a member of two professional bodies: NAVP and RAMP.

As part of my veterinary physiotherapy practice, I aim to remove tension and pain by utilising various electrotherapy and manual therapy techniques. Animals can only perform to the level that their body allows. When we are able to alleviate pain and/or tension we provide the best opportunity for building correct strength; consequently we allow our animals to work to the best of their ability. We, as owners, need to be sensitive to our horses/dogs needs and allow them to speak up when they are in discomfort. By treating animals empathetically we are able to build a greater level of trust with them. I believe this is so important when building a relationship that is enjoyable for both parties, especially when aiming for a competitive partnership. 

Following university, I gained my Level 3 canine hydrotherapy qualification and have practiced hydrotherapy alongside physiotherapy for a number of years. I have previously worked at both Herts Horses hydrotherapy and Healing Hound clinic which both involve use of the underwater treadmill to complement rehabilitation in our large and small animals. I would not hesitate to recommend the introduction of the underwater treadmill if I felt it was appropriate for the patient in question.

 

I now run a solely mobile practice but I am still a familiar face around Healing hounds as I still take my own dog for his regular swimming sessions to manage his osteoarthritis!

In order to be accredited by NAVP, professionals must have a level 6 (BSc) or level 7 (MSc/PgD) qualification in veterinary physiotherapy. Furthermore, to be accredited by RAMP, professionals must have a level 6 (BSc) qualification alongside 1000 hours of clinically relevant, hands on experience. Both associations require all professionals to attend regular CPD to ensure that practitioners are kept up to date with ever changing practices within the industry. Therefore, you can rest assured that any professional you chose from the RAMP or NAVP registers is adequately qualified and experienced. 

I encourage all owners and referring vets to look at both the NAVP and RAMP websites:

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Diane Moreton, Hertfordshire

Cloe has been really good with our dog, helping keep her comfortable and mobile after being diagnosed with a cruciate ligament injury and arthritis. Cookie has been a lot happier since starting sessions with Cloe and even gets excited when she sees her now! Would highly recommend Cloe

Cloe is amazing. She is very passionate about her work. Been treating my Mare before and after kissing spine surgery. She is very gentle and patient. My Mare has always been difficult to work on but actually stands quietly for Cloe. Having had an injury myself at the time Cloe kindly helped me out by doing the initial rehab for my Mare after her surgery by walking her in hand for me and has taught me how to get her to work long and low without the use of aids that can be restricting. I really couldn't have managed without Cloe and will be forever grateful.

Kate White, Herfordshire

Cloe was absolutely brilliant with our dog after he sustained an injury of his hind leg. He can be a little nervous around new people but Cloe put him at ease straight away and he genuinely loved her company. Her passion for animals and her jobs shines through and we would highly recommend’
