Here at Cotswold Animal Therapy, we're aiming to build a complete canine universe!
The Dog's Body! Our Universe started with establishing a successful Canine musculoskeletal and veterinary physiotherapy service in 2017, making use of the very latest in Class 4 Laser technology. This is a wonderful tool for combining with massage and soft tissue techniques to help with pain management, inflammation, muscle injury, wounds, soft tissue pain and joint conditions such as arthritis.
Cotswold Animal Therapy can also help with rehab planning/post op help for dogs that have undergone or are about to undergo surgery, and specialises in preventative work in puppies along with caring for those older dogs that fall into our Golden-Oldie category.
All MSK appointments carried out after a Vet form has been received from your Vet - downloadable at the top of this website
The Dog's Brain! Alongside the musculoskeletal side of things, Cotswold Animal Therapy offers Games Classes, where we can help teach you low impact physical and brain exercises, as well as skills like crate games/training (very useful for those that know their dog might need surgery/crate rest) and loose-lead exercises, or proprioceptive work.
These exercises and games might be used in rehab and to hep us get your dog moving again, or they might be used to help you adapt your older dogs exercise to a slower, lower impact, more mentally engaging lifestyle if they can no longer go on those long walks. It's also useful for puppies, who often need limited, careful exercise in the first years of life.
COMING SOON! Look out for our mantrailing training classes, coming in the Autumn!
Training Humans!

Rachael graduated as a Registered Veterinary Nurse from Hartpury University in 2008 and subsequently topped up her RVN qualification to a BSc, along with completing her A1 assessor and IQA Internal Verifier qualifications allowing her to train student Veterinary Nurses.
After completing the ESVPS NCert-Anaesthesia programme, which involved studying pain and pain medications, Rachael recognised the importance of pain control & rehabbing patients properly after surgery. This led to her becoming an animal musculoskeletal therapist in 2016, after completing the required study.
Since then, Rachael has enjoyed adding to her qualifications, particularly enjoying exploring the relationship between pain/injury/MSK conditions and canine behaviour, whilst completing a L4 Behaviour and Training Diploma.
Previously, she has also done extensive studying in the human field, qualifying as a registered Sports Massage Therapist, working with sports people at her local Chiropractic Clinic.
Since leaving Vet Nursing and becoming self-employed, Rachael has aimed to build Cotswold Animal Therapy into a Canine Universe - a project which is ongoing!
