What we offer

Whether you are a veterinary colleague or a pet carer we are here to help you bring the benefits of physiotherapy to dogs and cats with all the flexibility that a mobile service provides, in your practice or at your home.

You may want to offer physiotherapy at your practice but to date have not found this to be possible. You may want your pet to have physiotherapy but struggle to get them to the vets. The Ralph Mobile Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Service is here to help you to provide the best care possible to your patients or your pets.

The service launched in October 2016 and is led by Kim Sheader, a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Veterinary Physiotherapy with many years of experience, all of it based in the south east of England. To find out more about Kim please read her brief bio and a longer blog post. In May 2017, Kim was joined by Kaye Hillsdon, also a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Veterinary Physiotherapy; read Kaye’s brief bio and a longer blog post.

A well-thought out physiotherapy plan can do so much for a wide variety of dogs and cats, as can Laser therapy. Please get in touch and let’s see whether we can help you to improve the quality of life of your patients or your pets. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you soon.

The areas we cover:

The Ralph MPRS covers central London, Greater London, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Surrey, (south) Oxfordshire, (east) Wiltshire, (north) Hampshire and (west) Hertfordshire.

Laser therapy-only appointments:

We may decide to use Laser therapy as part of an overall physiotherapy treatment plan. In such cases there is no extra cost for this; it is included in the prices quoted above.

Some patients (for example with wounds or skin disorders) are referred to us exclusively for Laser therapy. Laser therapy-only appointments are typically 30 minutes long and are priced as follows:

  • Less than 45 minute drive time: £45 + VAT per appointment

Pet insurance:

Please note that physiotherapy is covered by many pet insurance policies; if you are a pet carer with an insured pet, we would recommend that you check this with your insurance provider.
