Yes! As our rehabilitation therapist, Dr Jane McNae, is also a veterinary surgeon, she is happy to take on new patients and assess their needs if they are not under current veterinary care. Sometimes, if further tests or treatment are needed, we will refer you back to your regular veterinary surgeon (or will happily recommend a clinic if you do not have a regular vet) for assessment.
It is important to make sure we have the correct diagnosis before treating your pet. This is why most referrals are from veterinary surgeons who have already performed all the necessary diagnostic tests, X-rays and imaging and any required medical or surgical treatment has been started. We liaise directly with your vet to obtain this information to ensure any specific requirements are met and we can advise your vet of progress and inform them when treatment is completed.
Regardless of whether your veterinary surgeon refers your pet to us or you seek Paws in Motion rehabilitation treatment for your pet yourself, we will communicate all information with your regular veterinary surgeon so that everyone has up to date information on your pet’s care.
