Megan grew up in the countryside of Ireland surrounded by all sorts of animals. She competed in horseback riding across the country, primarily in showjumping. At 18 Megan relocated to the
Netherlands to continue her studies. After visiting Dubai several times, she fell in love with the
culture and the energy of the city so she moved to Dubai with her Terrier, Scotch, where she now provides veterinary physiotherapy services to small animals and equine clients at any level.
In animals, as with humans, physiotherapy can be a great alternative to surgery or used post-
operatively to maximize healing and prevent secondary injuries. Physical rehabilitation has had
huge success in reducing pain and improving mobility in many different conditions such as back
pain, sprains and strains, orthopedic and neurological conditions and even performance problems. Physiotherapy can be a great preventative measure in ensuring your pet’s comfort and general health and wellbeing.
