CANINE MYOTHERAPY VETERINARY CONSENT
The Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962 was introduced to take legitimate canine complementary therapies into account - allowing for the treatment of an animal by physiotherapy, but only under the direction, supervision and on the recommendation of the treating veterinarian who has diagnosed the condition.
'Physiotherapy' in this case is defined as including all kinds of manipulative therapy, including myotherapy – therefore providing your dog has first been seen by a veterinary surgeon who is happy to refer, treatment from Moorland Canine is in compliance with the Act. Any therapist who sees an animal without having been recommended by a veterinarian - in a direct and explicit referral, is operating outside of the law.
I am happy to discuss the suitability of Galen Myotherapy© treatment for your dog in advance of you seeking consent, along with the procedure for requesting consent in person if you choose to proceed. If you would prefer me to organise consent for you or answer any questions about the process, I'm happy to help - contact me here.
