CHANGES TO OUR POLICY

Terms and Conditions

1. In the case of pre-existing conditions, veterinary physiotherapists are required to treat under veterinary referral in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966. Therefore, all clients MUST have a referral from their veterinarian before physiotherapy treatment. If your animal has not directly been referred to me by your veterinarian I will need to contact your veterinarian to acquire a referral prior to your appointment. The exception for this is when performing maintenance checks and treatments on a healthy animal. 

2. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours prior to the appointment to avoid charges. The client will be liable to pay half the price of the physiotherapy treatment fee if a cancellation is made under 24 hours prior to your appointment, or if the appointment is a "no show". However, if your animal has an illness or contagious disease you MUST reschedule your appointment. You will not incur a charge in this situation. Charges will also not be incurred for cancellation due to reasonable circumstances.

3. PRIVACY POLICY - All of the client's details are strictly bound by client confidentiality law within the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and the NAVP code of conduct. JP Veterinary Physiotherapy also complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

4. The right is reserved to refuse physiotherapy treatment if the animal requires veterinary treatment prior to physiotherapy, or if the animal is considered a danger to the physiotherapist.

5. Cash, BACS or cheques are the only payment methods accepted. Please note that payment in full is required at the time of consultation.

6. If you are claiming for physiotherapy treatment from your insurance company, you must have referral from your veterinarian and approval from your insurance company prior to physiotherapy treatment. You will have to pay for appointments up front.

7. Massage treatments are contraindicated by the following; diarrhoea, pregnancy, skin infections including fungal infections, open wounds, cancerous tumours, infectious diseases, fever or acute stages of injury (first 72 hours). If your animal is experiencing any of these then massage therapy cannot be provided. The same cancellation policy as above applies.

By confirming your physiotherapy appointment you are agreeing to the terms and conditions stated above.
