Pet Wellness

Offering a range of pet wellness services

Our philosophy is to discover the underlying cause of pain and treat this via a tailored mix of our different therapies and services.


Vale Vets is passionate about pet wellbeing and support pets not only when sick, but also at all stages of their life, as well as supporting them through different times of the year. Our therapies can support pets' mobility, mental wellbeing and overall health. Our nurses and wellbeing team offer an array of services including holistic therapies such as Bowen Therapy and Reiki.

Our nurse clinics give pet owners a network of veterinary nurses who can advise, care and treat a variety of conditions, as well as offer a wealth of knowledge, tips and tricks for managing your pets in the home.

What is Veterinary Rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is the management of pain to restore movement via a broad range of skills and therapies. We do use painkillers, but as part of a broader clinical approach which aims to identify and treat the underlying cause of pain. Our team is led by our specialist vets and advanced practitioners who are supported by physiotherapists, chiropractor and Bowen therapist who work together as a team to ensure that your animal receives the most appropriate treatment.

Is my animal in pain?

Animals are very good at hiding pain, particularly working dogs or sports dogs who really enjoy what they do. Because they can’t tell you they are in pain, you need to recognise the clues which might include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Changes in behaviour
  • Reluctance to jump up the way they would normally into a car, onto their bed etc
  • Stiffness or awkwardness in their gait
  • Change in stance when urinating or defaecating
  • Reluctance to settle after exercise or at night

Which therapy is best for my pet?

Usually, a short consultation over the phone will first determine who you are best to see. Or it may be that we have already discussed this with your vet who is referring you to a specific therapist. At your consultation, thorough questions will be asked about your pet’s symptoms, lifestyle and general health. A physical examination (fitness assessment) will look at the whole body not just the isolated area to determine a diagnosis and to form a treatment plan that will return your pet back to a certain level of function or help manage their pain. Our approach at Vale Referrals Rehabilitation is that we will cross refer to our different therapists, to make sure you always get the most appropriate treatment.

Before your appointment

We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and professional service to all our clients and patients.

Please keep your dog on a lead in the carpark and in the centre.

Please ensure your vet has completed the referral form before your appointment.

We may take video footage for analysis during treatments, photographs may also be taken. We may use these for educational talks or on our website so please let us know if you are not happy for pictures and videos to be used in this way.

We reserve the right to refuse treatment to an animal if necessary.

Please provide 24 hours notice of cancellation of an appointment. A missed appointment fee may be charged if less than 24 hours notice given.

Payment for services is due at the time of treatment unless a direct insurance claim has been agreed in advance. To submit a direct claim please refer to our terms and conditions.
