Gill Griffiths B.Sc.(Hons) MRAC NAVP
Gill has had an affinity for animals and in particular horses since a very young age. Her love for animals has grown over the years and following many years of lessons and hard work helping at yards her efforts were rewarded with her first pony, Opal, at the age of 13. This blossomed into a successful show jumping hobby and later dressage as well with her current horse Chelsea.
Gill has also had dogs all her life and been brought up around gun dogs, breeding some in previous years, and having a strong interest in the use of working dogs in all disciplines.
She has worked on many yards and has seen a variety of aspects of the industry from showing and dressage to eventing and national hunt. Alongside this work Gill has gained her BHS stages up to stage 3 and aspires to gain BHS AI in years to come.
Inspiration to follow a career in physiotherapy came from her mother, who is a chartered physiotherapist. Combining this aspiration with her love of animals was an obvious choice particularly as she was been keen to learn how to treat her own horse following an injury.
Therefore, after gaining a 2;1 in International Equine and Agricultural Business Management at the Royal Agricultural College, Gill decided to study at Harper Adams University and qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist with the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP), an organisation well respected by Vets and other professionals alike.
All treatments are done after veterinary consent to treat.
This procedure is part of The Veterinary Surgery (Exemption) Order 1962, which states "all physiotherapy treatment undertaken must be under veterinary referral".
DO NOT let anyone treat your animals without veterinary consent.
