Carmel is a certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner and has been an active member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists in the UK since 1996. Working in specialist veterinary orthopaedic practice from 1997 to 2002 has given her a great understanding of surgeries performed which would benefit from post-op rehabilitation. She also gained insight into the problems faced by surgeons and pet owners during animal recovery.

Carmel consistently reads up on the latest research and techniques to ensure she is providing the best possible treatments for injured or disabled pets. She thrives when her patients do, and loves seeing pets get back to comfortable mobility, so they can just enjoy being pets.
