About Moor2Sea Physio
Moor2Sea Physiotherapy specialises in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of all animals, from horses, dogs and cats to other small and large animals, as well as treatment of people. It provides an individual treatment plan for each patient and home management and advice for the owner, helping both cope with the effects of injury, pain or a reduced quality of life.
Prior to an initial assessment of your animal, referral from your vet is required and then we continue to work closely with your vet throughout the treatment process. Whether the patient is a top equine athlete or your favourite pet sheep, they will all be given the best care, attention and treatment necessary to enable them to return to a healthy, happy life. If it is you who requires treatment, no prior referral from a doctor is required, and you will be given the best possible care and attention.
Why choose an ACPAT-registered Veterinary Physiotherapist?
ACPAT-registered Veterinary Physiotherapists are a specialist group of professionals who first become qualified and experienced in the human field of physiotherapy before undertaking further training and transferring their skills to animals. This extended training enables them to offer the highest levels of expertise to animal patients.
If you want to be sure that your animal receives the best treatment, look for the ACPAT (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy) logo and ensure the physio is listed on the ACPAT register.
Vet Physios always require referral from the animal’s vet, which is a legal requirement under the Veterinary Surgeon’s Act, 1966.
The Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) is a newly-formed national register which demonstrates that a physiotherapist is trained to a high standard and is committed to providing the best possible care to their patients. Being registered with RAMP gives members of the public, vets and other professionals the peace of mind they need to refer safely their animals with confidence.
