PhysioMy.Dog - Holistic Animal/Veterinary Physiotherapy & Other Hands on Therapies for your Dog


  • I'm happy to treat your in your home and will travel 12 mile radius of Frome/Woking.  Anything further will incur a small mileage charge.  

  • Or if you live near Frome and prefer to bring your dog to me (ie you have a busy home) I'm more than happy to treat your dog in my peaceful garden therapy room.

  • If you're not local to me or you prefer to have an online consultation first, please click here for further information.

Vet Referral

  • I always seek Vet permission before I treat your pet.  It is against the law if I don't.  

  • I will request relevant information regarding your dog's health.

Pet Insurance

  • Please check your insurance policy.  You may be able to claim the treatment costs via your policy.

    • Please note it is the owner's responsibility to pay for the treatment.  I can provide an invoice/receipt so you can claim back directly from your insurance company.​

First Session – Usually 60-90 Minutes

Health History/Areas of Concern

  • During our first session, I will ask questions regarding exercise, diet, sleeping habits etc to get an overall picture and history of your dog.

  • I will also use any relevant information provided by your vet.



  • I will observe how your dog moves (gait analysis) – usually videoing so we have a benchmark – by watching your dog walk towards me, away from me.  I will also see how your dog sits and stands (static gait analysis).

  • This can help to identify possible areas of stiffness, pain, compensation movements/mobility.


Palpation & Assessment

  • I like to have a feel of your dog’s body from nose to tail to get them used to and start to trust me.  It's also a great way for me to feel for things like – hot/cold areas, trigger points, any particular areas where the dog is sore/sensitive or possible areas of pain and spasms etc. 


Full Body Treatment

  • Each treatment tends to depend on how the dog reacts to it, as all dogs are different. 

  • I will customise each session and apply the most appropriate techniques depending on your dog’s needs.

Treatment Plan & Reporting

  • After each session, I will follow up by email my findings and put together a plan which will detail things like exercise management, exercises, stretches or techniques you can perform yourself at home. 

  • I can also send a report to your vet and any other therapists your working with so they are up to date with my findings.

What to Expect After Therapy Session

  • Therapy sessions release toxins, encourages blood and lymph circulation and stimulates the nervous system.  

  • After the treatment, keep your dog quiet, only allow light exercise, free access to water and going to the toilet. 

  • You may find your dog has some stiffness - this will ease over the next day or so and they may just sleep for the rest of the day.  

  • It can also make your dog feel instantly great and they will be immediately more active!

Follow Up Sessions – 45-60 Minutes

  • As a rough guide, it often works well is to start off with 3 sessions, fairly close together and then maintenance sessions as needed.

  • I’m happy to work with you to discuss the best programme of treatments, allowing for your budget and animal’s needs.  

  • I like to think of each session like peeling off layers of an onion, so during each session we’re peeling off more and getting deeper each time.

Other Information 

  • Please ensure you don't feed your dog an hour before/after the treatment session.  

  • When treating in your home, I find that pets respond better wherever they are most comfortable and where it is quiet.  

    • So if you have other pets (and/or busy people) in your home, please ensure they are in a separate area.

  • Some pets relax straight into their first treatment session, but for some it can take a while.  Rest assured I will be guided by your pet.

How Dogs with Osteoarthritis benefit from Physiotherapy Research

"Harriet has really helped our old boy Max a 14 year old Golden Retriever who has suffered with bad arthritis since undergoing earlier operations for both Cruciate Ligaments in his earlier years. Max seems more engaged since the treatments started and is finding it a lot easier to get off the floor and has also been doing the odd little jog now and then on his walks.

His treatment is fortnightly and he has hydro therapy in the intervening week. I have no hesitation in recommending Harriet she is a nice person to know and is very professional with her follow up questions after treatments.


Max obviously loves her as the benefits are immediate both during and after her visits and I think combined with the hydro has given him a new lease of life." John Purnell, Owner
