Frequently Asked Questions

As the very nature of my work is fairly unique, here's a selection of questions I frequently get asked.

  • 1- What conditions can osteopathy help with?

    +

    Osteopathy can help the same conditions that affect people. Mostly these are minor orthopaedic problems, but can also involve birthing traumas, and some behavioural patterns.

  • 2- How many treatments are usually needed?

    +

    How long is a piece of string? Each patient has different requirements. However, as a general rule most dogs usually show a marked improvement after 3 consultations. Horses often require a more prolonged course of treatment, as many of our cases are of a chronic, longstanding nature.

  • 3- Is treatment covered under Insurance?

    +

    Most pet/animal insurance schemes cover osteopathic treatment (when carried out at a veterinary practice). However we strongly advise that you check with your own company first prior to starting any treatment with us.

  • 4- Will I see any animals at your clinic(s)?

  • 5- Have you ever treated a bear?

    I have examined several but none needed treatment, however watch this space.
