A New Safe Choice for Animals
Thursday 12th January 2017
An important new register has been created. The Register for Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) lists professionals using Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Physiotherapy techniques for animals. This national organisation's standards are similar to those set worldwide.
All practitioners listed have reached the Gold Standard of practice set by RAMP. They are properly qualified and insured.
The list is available on the website www.rampregister.org. It is organised by geographical area to make practitioners easy-to-find for vets, trainers and animal owners.
The musculoskeletal sector is a relatively young industry which contains multiple competing types of practice that has caused confusions for animal owners. This was potentially putting animals at risk.
Musculoskeletal treatment should only be carried out by people who are appropriately competent. This will avoid causing undue pain, distress or suffering to the animal.
Vets and animal owners can now make an informed choice and find an appropriately competent professional to provide the services they require.
RAMP will also provide a new, robust complaints procedure.
