Fraser Veterinary Physiotherapy
Fraser Veterinary Physiotherapy is owned and run by Megan Arnold, who graduated from Harper Adams University in Shropshire with a BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Physiotherapy. Fraser Veterinary Physiotherapy is a flexible, mobile service and fully insured as well as being registered with appropriate governing bodies (IRVAP, AHPR).
Megan first began working within the animal rehabilitation field when she completed her first work experience with a canine hydrotherapist at the age of 13. She enjoyed so many aspects of the job that, following extensive work experience and a Level 3 Diploma in Animal Management, she decided to train as a Veterinary Physiotherapist. This led to her discovering the Veterinary Physiotherapy course at Harper Adams, which set itself apart by including a placement year within the Veterinary Physiotherapy industry.
Whilst on her placement year, Megan worked at Carnfield Hall Canine Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy in Derbyshire, which works closely with East Midlands Referrals Veterinary Hospital. This provided her with invaluable experience in dealing with a large range of cases and helped her to develop her skills as a Veterinary Physiotherapist.
Megan currently lives in Ruddington with her partner and their cocker spaniel called Cooper and rescue cat called Pickle.
Cooper is our working Cocker Spaniel and unofficial company mascot - you may recognise him from our company logo.
He is just over a year old and we have recently started his basic level agility training, in the hope of competing once he's a bit older.
Cooper is obsessed with water and loves nothing more than a long walk that includes going for a swim.
Pickle was originally a stray cat who was found abandoned and came to us as a foster via Robin Hood Cat Rescue.
However, he quickly developed such a strong bond with Cooper that he became our first 'foster fail'.
Although he began life on the streets, he has very quickly transitioned into a sofa loving cat and spends most of his time cuddling up to everyone.
One question that we sometimes get asked is 'Why did you choose the name Fraser Veterinary Physiotherapy?'. As Megan's surname is Arnold, we thought that ‘Arnold Vet Physio’ may get confusing due to the proximity of Ruddington to the Arnold area of Nottingham. Fraser was Megan’s Grandma’s maiden name and so the name is a nod to her and all the support she has given Megan over the years.
A Veterinary Referral Form is required prior to any appointment or treatment taking place. We can send this to your vet directly or you can download a copy and return the completed version to us (at least 24 hours before your appointment).
