ABOUT

Fraser Vet Physio

Fraser Vet Physio is owned and run by Megan Arnold, who graduated from Harper Adams University in Shropshire with a BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Physiotherapy in 2020. Fraser Vet Physio is based in Ruddington, Nottingham at our state of the art Hydrotherapy Centre (opened 2024) and is 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, Cooper and rescue cats, Pickle and Frankie.

Cooper

Cooper is our working Cocker Spaniel and unofficial company mascot - you may recognise him from our company logo! 

 

We got Cooper in June 2019 and he enjoys agility training, long hikes in the Peak District and lots of swimming. 

His favourite types of walks are those involving water, woods, or preferably both.

Pickle

Pickle was originally a stray cat who was found abandoned and came to us as a foster via Robin Hood Cat Rescue in June 2020

 

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.

Frankie

Frankie is our Bengal cross who we adopted from RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre in August 2021.

She is very much a 'Mummy's girl' and loves to follow Megan around the house and sit on her lap - especially when she's trying to work on her laptop! When she isn't 'helping' with the office work, her favourite place to sit is in front of the fire or on a snuggly blanket.

Why Fraser?

One question that we sometimes get asked is 'Why did you choose the name Fraser Vet Physio?'. 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 to 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).
