International Association of Animal Therapists -

Registered Therapist Services

Connecting your animals and pets with the most appropriate therapy

The Association is an international group of animal therapists who work under veterinary referral.

Animal therapy is as important to the physical wellbeing in animals as it is in humans and this is becoming increasingly appreciated in animal owners and veterinarians. Animal therapists as a consequence are becoming more and more in demand due to the increasing awareness of animal healthcare.

Our registered therapists cover many services from physiotherapy, manipulation and osteopathy to hydrotherapy, massage and maintenance. Their services help animals of all shapes and sizes to recover from injury and illness, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury.
