About Jennifer

A fully qualified, insured and registered Veterinary Physiotherapist, Jennifer holds a Level 7 (Masters level) Post Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Nottingham University School of Veterinary Medicine and Science. She also holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Oxford and BSc (Hons) Zoology degree from Cardiff University.

As a member of the Institute of Registered Veterinary and Animal Physiotherapists (IRVAP) and the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP), and registered with the Animal Health Professions' Register (AHPR), Jennifer bases her service offer on the shared belief that every animal deserves the best available treatment based on sound scientific evidence.

A lifelong animal enthusiast with a background of volunteering in animal rescue and welfare and working across three continents, Brize Veterinary Physiotherapy was born to bring to life Jennifer's desire to provide animals with an enhanced quality of life and positively influence animal welfare.

Jennifer will work closely with your veterinarian and other members of the multidisciplinary team which may include specialist vets, hydrotherapists, nutritionists, behaviourists or other complimentary therapists to ensure your animal is offered the best care.

Jennifer has owned and cared for a number of horses who taught her about patience and working with rather than on an animal, and enjoys applying her problem solving skills to rehabilitation, maintenance and performance cases equally.

Jennifer is passionate about maintaining function in our older companion and retired animals who may have multiple and complex problems requiring multi-modal management and long term support.

Having her own ex-street dogs Peanut and Pebbles from Kathmandu, Jennifer also particularly enjoys working with rescues and can alter working practices so that even the most nervous can benefit from Veterinary Physiotherapy input.
