Celebrating 12 months of endorsing the profession of veterinary physiotherapy through promoting the scientific approach to animal welfare.
The Association for the Scientific Study of Veterinary and Animal Physiotherapy (ASSVAP) is celebrating its first birthday.
ASSVAP was set up 12 months ago to endorse the profession of veterinary physiotherapy through promoting the scientific approach to animal welfare. During this time, the association’s membership had grown and now comprises vets, vet nurses and veterinary physiotherapists, along with students from those professions.
The interface that ASSVAP provides allows professionals to exchange information to demonstrate veterinary physiotherapy as an evidence-based profession.
ASSVAP secretary Elizabeth Elliott said: “This has been a very exciting 12 months. Not only have we provided a number of exceptionally popular CPD opportunities to promote veterinary physiotherapy, but we will shortly be announcing a major collaboration with a UK University to provide a BSc in veterinary physiotherapy, leading to membership of ASSVAP.
“We are now the second largest veterinary physiotherapy association in the country, and have recently expanded into the USA and mainland Europe, so the next 12 months are likely to be even more exciting.”
The ASSVAP website contains contains information for those interested in veterinary physiotherapy, including an online store for books, DVDs and physiotherapy supplies and a database of science for members to access.
The site also contains a video profile of Dr Gail Williams, ASSVAP’s senior consulting veterinary physiotherapist. Applications for membership can be made by completing the online form from the website.
