Osteopathy can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal and mechanical problems in animals, as well as some behaviorual issues. Animals that can be treated include domestic pets, livestock, horses and ponies, birds, wildlife and exotic species. Rachael uses Cranial Osteopathy and gentle soft tissue releasing techniques, which the animals usually find relaxing and thereby avoiding the need for sedation.
Treatment usually takes place at the animalís own home, field or stables on a call out basis, or within a veterinary practice. Rachael covers the London and the South East (including Kent and East Sussex)
A veterinary consent form will need to be completed (please contact for a form to be posted/emailed) before treatment can take place. Any investigative procedures that are required will need to be completed by your vet prior to treatment. All referring vets will be kept informed of treatment and progression.
Many pet/animal insurance schemes cover osteopathic treatment. However I recommend that you check with your own insurers prior to starting any treatment.
