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. Veterinary Consent

‘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 consent to treatment Clarity Treatments is compliant with the Act.

Any therapist who sees an animal without having been recommended by a veterinarian is operating outside of the law.
