Welcome to VIP Vet Physio

Sally Medcalf, Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapist, provides excellence in animal physiotherapy for dogs, cats and horses through a holistic and caring approach. Whether treating canine or equine athletes, or a much loved companion, all are treated with care, respect and compliance.

Veterinary Physiotherapy has been recognised for the past 25 years, and is an invaluable adjunct to veterinary medicine in the treatment of large and small animals. The overall aims of physiotherapy are to maintain mobility, function, independence, and enhance performance.
