Is your animal performing to their best?

Just like their owners’ animals can suffer from aches and pains, however animals often cope with pain quite discretely, meaning aches and pains can go unnoticed. 


Left untreated muscle stiffness and back pain can build up causing the animal to change its natural way of moving, impacting on the animal’s performance. This is normally when the problem is noticed, presenting as unevenness or even lameness within the gait. 


McTimoney Treatment has proven to be highly beneficial in helping the animal regain musculoskeletal health and performance.

The treatment of animals is currently regulated under the Veterinary Act. The McTimoney Animal Association (MAA) is the professional association for McTimoney Animal Practitioners.  


All members of the McTimoney Animal Association (MAA) have completed a Post Graduate Diploma or MSc in Animal Manipulation at the McTimoney Chiropractic College. This is currently the only validated course in Europe in teaching techniques for adjusting animals. All members work closely with vets to ensure a safe, appropriate and effective treatment takes place.


The McTimoney Animal Association is responsible for setting professional standards for its members and for maintaining a professional code of ethics. All members are required to carry full indemnity insurance and must  maintain their level of expertise by undertaking continuing professional development after they have qualified.


Under current legislation, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates the chiropractic treatment of humans. Only practitioners that are registered with the GCC can legally call themselves Chiropractors and treat members of the public. Animal practitioners are not able to join the GCC as it is only concerned with human treatment. The use of the word McTimoney to describe the animal treatment DOES NOT imply that Animal practitioners are chiropractors.

A consent form must be completed by your Vet and returned to Lucy before any treatment can be given.
