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!

Hi, I’m Miranda! I graduated in July 2021 with my masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy. Despite growing my interest largely in equine physiotherapy I fell in love with the canine side in my final year at university. I decided to explore this further and am undertaking my Level 3 Hydrotherapy qualification to compliment and grow my skills as a physiotherapist. Seeing and helping dogs through their recovery truly is the best job satisfaction!
