Since opening in March 1999, Severn Veterinary Centre has been accepting referrals for orthopaedic and spinal problems. To further complement this service, we opened our purpose built surgery at Berkeley House, with a rehabilitation centre that is unique and can offer your pet all sorts of physiotherapy and alternative therapy treatments, complete with a hydrotherapy pool and underwater treadmill.

Natasha Cooper RVN runs our rehabilitation facilities, she is a Registered Veterinary Nurse who has had an interest in this area for many years and holds a diploma in Animal Physiotherapy, and membership with the International Association of Animal Therapists. Several of our nurses are trained in canine hydrotherapy and pool water management. Our qualified staff and veterinary knowledge enables us to offer a complete rehabilitation service.

Could your pet benefit from hydrotherapy?

  • Is your dog having trouble going up the stairs nowadays?
  • Is your cat no longer able to jump up where he or she used to?
  • Does your pet occasionally groan when getting up or sitting down?
  • Does he or she take a long time to get into a comfy position to sleep?
  • Does it seem that bending down to eat is becoming more difficult for him or her?
  • Has your pet had an accident or an orthopaedic operation?
  • Does your pet suffer from chronic pain, for example from arthritis?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes or maybe, you should consider physiotherapy or acupuncture to help improve your pet’s condition.
