VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY – UPDATE

The SAVC wishes to bring all veterinary physiotherapists on board within the next two years. The SAVC Veterinary Physiotherapy Sub-Committee received “self-mapping” against the Day 1 skills from each applicant and they have started with individual evaluation of applicants. The examination, where applicable, can only be determined once all the self-mapping has been evaluated and will probably only take place in 2020. The SAVC will be communicating directly with each applicant.
