What do our clients say?

Having had Sophie work her magic on two of my Border Collies for 18 Months giving them pain-free mobility, l would highly recommend RVN Pet Physio for any dogs needing a little help with physio after surgery/injury and general maintenance, reducing the need for extra medication.
Jac & Tommi - Border Collies
I can’t recommend Sophie enough. She is an excellent physio and treated my dog Hugo after cruciate ligament surgery to get him on the right road to recovery. She is extremely professional and tailored everything specifically for his recovery. And the beauty is she comes to your home!

Sophie is an excellent Pet Therapist and has successfully given laser/physio to my older dog who has arthritis and is intolerant to a lot of painkillers. I have found Sophie highly professional, with great technical expertise; she cares about the animals and builds an appropriate rapport to care for them.

Sophie has been amazing in helping Jet, our 11 year old Labrador, manage her arthritis with laser & physio treatments that really has helped ensure that she can have a much better quality of life in her senior years. Sophie always gives valuable advice to help in between treatments and we would highly recommend her”
