VETERINARY REFERRAL LAWS

Upon booking client and Veterinary Surgeon consent forms will be sent to yourself and your Vet Practice, these must be completed before your animal's session and emailed back to info@calibratevp.co.uk

The Veterinary Surgeons (Exemptions) Order 2015 states that remedial Veterinary Physiotherapy may only be conducted under referral from a Veterinary Surgeon. It is therefore vital that if your animal is receiving physiotherapy post-injury or for an existing condition, the Veterinary Physiotherapist must first gain consent.

While this consent is not necessary for maintenance or conditioning cases, your animal must still be registered with a Veterinary Practice. In line with governing body guidance, your Veterinary Surgeon will still be notified prior to initial maintenance treatments. If injury or pathology is discovered during an assessment, treatment will be stopped and your animal will be referred back to their Veterinary Practice.
