McTimoney therapy recognised by British Equine Veterinary Association

Posted 6th July, 2012
It is important for horse owners (and owners of other animals too!) to know they are choosing a practitioner with the best qualifications, credentials and experience to treat their animal. With a wealth of different types of therapy around, it can become rather overwhelming for an owner - and also for Vets.

From the British Equine Veterinary Association website: "The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) works with a number of musculo-skeletal allied professional groups and publishes lists of suitably qualified post-graduate members of these groups who meet certain criteria. BEVA considers that, by meeting these criteria, the individuals have the necessary knowledge and experience to safely treat horses following a veterinary referral."

BEVA also states "it is recognised that some horses with musculo-skeletal pathology may benefit by receiving treatment from non-veterinary therapists as defined by the Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962 (e.g. physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors)." - for more legal info, please see the "legal notice" at the top right of the page.

The McTimoney Animal Association is now one of the allied professional groups that is recognised by BEVA. I am a full member of the McTimoney Animal Association, and am also an active member of the committee.
