Silvia Janska Tells Donna What She Loves About Physio

In October 2021, Donna spoke to Silvia, a vet originating from Slovakia. If you would like to watch the entire interview, you can do so here.

During their brilliantly interesting chat, Donna asked Silvia what she loves about physio and Silvia gave a fabulous answer:

You can use it as a preventative thing as well as a treatment and it’s a great complimentary thing… complimentary to your surgery, medications, all of the stuff that vets do. You’d be missing out on half the treatment if you didn’t have physios or all the other part of the team that help the animal to recover… if it’s say a post-surgery physio. It’s just somebody that I can work with. I’m by no means somebody who’s like “oh I know it all”: I need a team, I’m such a team person.
