OWNER AND VET CONSENT
As stipulated by the Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1966, before any veterinary paraprofessional (including Chartered Physiotherapists) can treat a horse, the horse must be registered with a vet. As of 2020, for "routine check up" appointments, consent/referral from your vet is no longer required. However, for all injury related treatments or rehabilitation, a written or verbal history and consent will be required from your vet prior to treating to enable team working and the best result for the patient.
Upon attending your horse, you will be given a registration form to complete that you will need to sign to declare that you give consent to the treatment, and that you agree to the financial terms and conditions.
