OWNER AND VET CONSENT
As stipulated by the Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1966, before any veterinary paraprofessional (including Chartered Physiotherapists) can treat a horse, consent must be given by both the owner and the animal's current vet. For "routine check up" appointments, verbal consent is usually acceptable. For all injury related treatments or rehabilitation, a written history and consent will be required from your vet prior to treating.
Upon attending your horse, you will be given a registration form to complete that you will need to sign to declare that you and your vet give consent to the treatment, and that you agree to the financial terms and conditions.
