In order to treat or swim a patient our referral form will need to be filled out and signed by your veterinary surgeon, you can find and download a copy here
The referral form helps me as a hydrotherapist to devise a treatment plan designed specifically for your dog. It is also helpful in understanding any other medical conditions that are present and whether they would affect hydrotherapy treatment and whether the way treatment is given will need to be adapted accordingly.
Why do I need a referral form just for a swim?
By law a hydrytherapist cannot treat or swim a patient without the prior signed consent of your veterinary surgeon
How often will I need to get a referral?
An up to date referral form will need to be filled out and signed by referring surgeon every 12 months
