Veterinary consent

All veterinary physiotherapists work with veterinary consent; this is vital because we must work within the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, as only a vet can diagnose and treat an animal in the UK. This involves getting consent from your registered vet, which gives me permission to assess and treat the animal. Thankfully, this is an simple process.

How I work

Step one: Download the veterinary consent form (word doc or PDF - links below), and fill in the owner and animal details, and details of your vets. 

 

Step two: return the form to us via email (info@shackletonvetphysio.com), and detail any preferences for your session/visit, we will then forward the form to your vet and gain consent from the registered surgery.

 

Step three: we will contact you and confirm a time and date for your first session, first

sessions tend to last up to 1hr 30minutes, as this will include a full initial assessment

and treatment. 

After your first session you will receive a full report detailing clinical findings, treatment                                                 

administered and exercise prescription. This form will also be sent to your veterinary

surgery to allow them to update the animals veterinary records.
