Francoise Deavin

Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Hydrotherapy for small animals. Registered Veterinary Nurse

I helped rehabilitate a stray lurcher puppy with a complicated fracture/Dislocation of the foreleg following on from a Road accident.

To avoid amputation I decided to start intensive Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy. After 6 months the dog made a full recovery. This case inspired me to pursue a career in animal rehabilitation.

Level 3 abc awards in Hydrotherapy for Small animals

Hi my name is Sam and these are my boys! I have a background of Accounts and used to work in the City.  I joined Pet Health & Therapy helping with the Accounts and assisting Francoise with the hydrotherapy sessions. Falling in love with the job satisfaction it gave her I decided to train as a Level 3 Hydrotherapist and work alongside Francoise. I thoroughly love my job and the satisfaction I get seeing dogs recover and gain strength after injuries/diagnonsis. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier!

Hello, my name is Amy. I have a lovely Jack Russel named Lizzie and I have always wanted to work with animals!
After completing my animal management diploma at college, I started working at a kennels. Here I learnt a lot of hands on experience and increased my love for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Determined to continue my career with dogs I came across Hydrotherapy. My boyfriends family dog needed rehab after a complicated knee operation and we were all so amazed at her recovery. It helped her so much and I couldn’t wait to get on a course and learn the skills to help other dogs recover from surgery too.
Now I love being a part of this wonderful team and helping dogs everyday.

I studied for my Level 3 small animal hydrotherapy certificate alongside training practically at a local centre. I joined the team at Pet Health and Therapy in 2018. I have 3  rescue sight hounds as well as fostering for a greyhound rescue charity.
