Sally Medcalf, VIP Vet Physio founder

As a Chartered Physiotherapist I am a muscle, movement and exercise specialist. I have a life-long passion for the well being of all animals, and all my treatments are kind, caring and delivered with the animal’s full compliance. My overall aim is to keep your animal, great or small, free from injury, and fit for a long and happy life with you.

I have a special interest in the treatment of working and competition dogs and have written a series of articles relating to how physiotherapy can help with problems arising in the various disciplines. I am a grade 6 dog agility handler and an Agility Club Approved Instructor (ACAI). I regularly train and compete with my five dogs and I qualified and competed at Crufts in 2008 and 2009 with Millie Mops my small terrier. I have also trained with horses to BHSAI level, and have competed at riding club national championship level. I always work closely with the referring Veterinary Surgeon and I am committed to a multi-disciplinary approach liaising with other professionals as necessary.

Millie MopsI believe in the philosophy of prevention is better than a cure, and strongly recommend the injury prevention and performance enhancement programs that I offer for both puppies, and canine and equine athletes.
