About us

Petffisio vet physiotherapy clinic is headed by Rosemary Jones PGDip Vet Phys Level 7 MIRVAP. Petffisio provides canine, cat and equine physiotherapy rehabilitation services throughout West Wales.

Rosemary is a fully insured, registered member of the National Association of The Institute of Registered Veterinary & Animal Physiotherapists. Under the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966), Rosemary can only treat an animal with delegation (referral) from their Veterinary Surgeon, which must be obtained prior to treatment. Our vet referral form is available to download at the top of this website.

A vet referral is not needed for animals having physiotherapy or hydrotherapy as part of fitness or maintaining condition which have no presenting injuries subject to the Exemption Act. Please read T&Cs.

While growing up in Llanon Ceredigion West Wales, Rosy competed in dog agility, flyball and dog showing with the Young Kennel Club.

Rosys’ interest in horses blossomed as she worked at local Welsh cob stud farms after school and looked after her own ponies.

Taking part in pony club activities, including show jumping and cross country, is where Rosys’ interest in animals became a life-passion.

In 2019 Rosemary qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist, having gained her post-graduate diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy from the University of Nottingham at Level 7, and is currently completing her Master of Science in Veterinary Physiotherapy from the University of Nottingham – School of Veterinary Medicine & Science.

Prior to her degree, Rosemary spent almost 9 years in The Royal Army Veterinary Corps, where she gained many sporting achievements alongside completing operational deployments.

As a class 1 dog trainer she specialised in working with protection and search dogs and was deployed as an arms explosive search handler. She also holds NASDU qualifications in handling GP, Explosive Search and Drug Detection Dogs.

Rosy was thrown from a horse and sustained a life changing spinal injury, so was Medically Discharged in 2018, leading her to follow a life-passion to study veterinary physiotherapy. She can relate to her patients, having gone through the rehabilitation process herself.

Outside of work, Rosy trains and competes in dog agility and Canicross. She also participates in mountain biking when time allows and enjoys hiking. She recently completed a ‘100k Ultra’ event cross the Lake District and finished 16th out of 450 to raise money for the charity ‘Good for Dogs’.

HOMESTED LIFE

Rosy has a two-year-old Working Collie, who trains in agility and Canicross. He also enjoys swimming and water sports such as paddle boarding and canoeing.

Farm animals include Pedigree Welsh Pigs that have been shown on occasion, pygmy goats, Dorset lambs and ducks reared for their eggs. Her Collie, Marvel, adores accompanying her to complete all the farm chores.

    Excellent knowledge and treatment of my horses. I have used Rosy to both improve performance and to assist in injury recovery. In both circumstances the treatment given played a vital role in the outcome. Her knowledge is excellent, explaining as she went and left us with exercises to assist further. Thoroughly recommend.

    Fantastic service from Rosy, she has been working with our Border Collie for some months who had a soft tissue shoulder injury. Our dog has now fully recovered. As she is a Flyball Dog she will be fit to resume her athletic life when Covid restrictions lift. We will be continuing to use Rosy's services monthly to ensure that our pet stays well. We would have not hesitation in recommending Rosy to anyone

    Rosy did a full assessment on our young active dobermann P, and specifically with regards to her movement for mantrailing and canicross. Rosy checked how she moved in general and also in each of her harnesses.. P is over enthusiastic at the best of times, in fact she is a total nutter... but Rosy has a fab calm approach which really helps to settle her and get her to focus. She also wasn't put off by 36kg of muddy dobe saying hi at eye level! Rosy keeps it simple...explains the cause and how it affects movement...goes over each exercise clearly in the session. We also really like the back up email summary which we print off and use as our daily checklist. Brill for those of us with a memory like a sieve. P has shown a big improvement after the first session, and the different treatments Rosy used. We are really enjoying fitting the exercises in to our routines at home...they seem to tire her brain out too, which is an added bonus. Very happy to have found Rosy...and have already recommended to a friend!

    Pip once again, overstretched on an old injury and I noticed he was lame on Tuesday. On Thursday Rosy saw him and treated him and within 24 hours his gait was back to normal.. Exercise regime given by email and instructions on how to proceed for the next 2 weeks. Excellent service, prompt, reliable and an expert when it comes to handling all animals. Highly recommended without hesitation.
