Welcome to Grace Hobbs Vet Physio
I am a fully qualified Veterinary Physiotherapist and member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists, holding a First Class Honours degree in Veterinary Physiotherapy.
Working in and around Gloucestershire, I cater for your horses, dogs (and anything in between!).
My services include full static, dynamic and palpation assessment to advise and create a treatment specifically designed for your horse or dog’s musculoskeletal system, incorporating manual techniques, electrotherapies and remedial exercise prescription to help reduce pain and discomfort and improve function, reduced performance and their overall quality of life.
What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is now extensively renowned within the veterinary industry.
It is a significant part in the rehabilitation process of an animal and has a great importance in improving an animal’s performance, supporting their recovery, returning mobility, function and overall quality of life.
Veterinary physiotherapy focuses on the wellbeing of the musculoskeletal system to help with pain management and prevention of future injuries.
Why can you trust a qualified Vet Physio?
In order to be an accredited Vet Physio, you must be a member of a governing body (such as the NAVP) which checks your competency, and excellence in your speciality, is regularly up to date.
Vet physios use an evidence based approach, adapting what has been tried and tested scientifically to create a treatment for your animal.
Every animal is treated with empathy for individuality: with a unique character, background and case which leads to the design of their own tailored treatment.
What our clients have to say...
"I contacted Grace upon reccomendation from a friend... I'm so glad I did. Harry (horse!) sustained an injury to his back a few months ago which had left him with tenderness and muscle guarding. Grace listened carefully to my concerns and conducted a thorough examination before advising on a course of treatment (incl. Laser therapy). Since Grace worked her magic, Harry is visibly more comfortable and in much better spirits. Thank you Grace for doing such a great job!"
