What Rita Loves About Physio (or rehab!)

So yeah, I mean, I think it’s a great way for owners to get involved in the treatment of their pet as well. And I think owners want to be involved. I think that’s what’s really special about physio, because most of the time, they can be there with with their pet as well and they want to be there and to share to share that and see what’s going on. And certainly, there’s huge advances being made like in every avenue of Veterinary Medicine, and with that we’re following the same route as human medicine now, which I think is absolutely brilliant. So the same opportunities and treatments are available now for our animals, which is what should be what it should be like. And I think owners are really thankful for that. And, now with insurance, a lot of people having their insurance on board, they’ve got access to it, which is fantastic.
