AVP is run and operated by a fully-insured, qualified veterinary physiotherapist, Kat, who is also a proud and accredited member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP) and a certified canine first-aider.
AVP offers compassionate physiotherapy services to animals great and small. We utilise a range of therapies to ensure your companions receive the best care. Here at AVP, we understand how important our animals are to us. We are dedicated to providing comfort to our patients, whether they are recovering from injury or are in need of that extra bit of support.
A Personal Approach
At AVP, we are committed to providing quality care to all our patients and clients. We are dedicated to getting to know our patients to perform individual and tailored treatments for all.
Our Veterinary Physiotherapist
Hi! I'm Kat. Having always had a passion for animals, my desire to learn more led me towards an education in animal care. After watching and assisting the family dog through their recovery after orthopaedic surgery, my interest refined towards animal rehabilitation.
Dogs are still a part of my family life, with my own Cockapoo, Loki, being the heart and centre. Horses entered my world when I started to learn to ride later in life and, thanks to a certain mare, it is a passion I enjoy to this day.
I am proud to have graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Warwickshire College/Coventry University and to be a member of the NAVP.
AVP has been established in honour of Kat's beloved rabbit, Apollo. Apollo may have been small in stature (as a dwarf lop), but he had a big presence in Kat's life. He stood for many virtues which, here at AVP, we wish to adopt into practice.
Apollo lived up to his namesake. He healed and mended hearts, brought light to darker days. Most of all Apollo was compassionate and always attentive to his human family.
We are proud to carry on his values and memory.
At AVP we uphold a holistic approach to all our patients, enabling us to deliver treatment with a personal touch. Our first treatment session will begin with getting to know your animal. These sessions may take more consultation time. We will take all relevant medical history and perform a full gait, range of motion and soft tissue assessment before performing a tailored treatment plan.
Following the initial consultation, follow-up treatments will reassess, review our progress and adjust our treatments where necessary to provide continued support for your beloved animal companion.
Compassionate care for your companions!

Please note that under UK legislation, AVP requires veterinary consent/referral before treating your beloved pets and companions. A veterinary consent form can be found on our website to be provided to your animal's veterinary surgeon. Alternatively, you may send us your veterinary surgeon's details and we will obtain veterinary consent on your behalf.
