(Here is an article about Brooke in the 2011 APA In Motion magazine)
Brooke always strives to provide the best quality of care for all animals, with a great deal of respect for their behaviour and condition, and aims to maximise their quality of life. She prefers to work closely with the owners of the animals to provide daily care and ongoing management, with plenty of advice and support.
In QLD, Animal Physiotherapists work closely with the Veterinary profession (requiring referral), which fosters a uniquely holistic team approach to your animal’s rehabilitation. Each year Brooke presents to Veterinarians, Veterinary Nurses and Physiotherapists at conferences and courses throughout Australia.
While she has enjoyed many years in human private practice, she is now proud to transfer her skills to treating her 4 legged friends full time.
