About Lesley

  • I am a fully qualified and insured veterinary physiotherapist based in Shropshire, with Postgraduate (Level 7) qualification in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Harper Adams University, and a member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP) and Register of Animal Muscular Skeletal Practitioners (RAMP) whose requirement for continuing professional development ensures skills and knowledge are kept up to date with the latest research in this developing field. I hold an Honours degree in Equine Science from the Royal Agricultural University and a First Class Honours Degree in Animal Management, Behaviour and Welfare from the University of Chester providing a wide and varied knowledge of animal management and care, from pets, competition animals, farm animals and exotics, backed up with over twenty years professional experience working with animals in a variety of fields. I am also a British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach with many years’ experience managing, training and competing horses with a particular interest in dressage. I have a keen interest in both equine and canine sports performance and welfare and am a qualified Human Sports Massage therapist. My leisure time is mostly spent with constant companion and physio assistant, black labrador Meg.  Read more
