“Alia has been a kind, caring and professional vet physio to our elderly dog Sky, helping her retain her mobility and a good quality of life. Sky adored Alia so it was a successful and joyful partnership for around three years until the end of Sky’s life after 18 happy years”. Liz, Sky’s owner.


“I turned to Alia at Cotswold Vet Physio when my mini dachshund had to have a back op having been paralysed by a slipped disc. With such a dramatic injury we didn’t know what to expect but the results Alia achieved are nothing short of miraculous!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Her thorough professionalism and genuine concern, going above and beyond any expectations to deliver truly fantastic results were exceptional.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

From week one when my beloved daxy could barely stand, let alone walk, to week ten when she was happily strolling along in the water treadmill, Alia motivated and coached every step.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She provided achievable, tailored goals and exercises to back up her excellent sessions and was a huge support to me as well as my dax. I wouldn’t (and don’t!) hesitate to recommend Alia for any kind of physio work from dachshund to dressage horse.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An enormous part of my now having my daxy back able to run around and create mischief with the others is due to Alia’s forward thinking and caring, knowledgeable approach so I can’t recommend her highly enough – thank you!”. Kathryn, Nancy’s owner. ⠀

“Alia regularly checks and treats our horses to ensure that they are in great condition and performing at their optimum level. Alia is great with the horses and we highly recommend her”.

“We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Alia and Cotswold vet Physio, Alia has been looking after Prince since September 2018 and she continues to take great care of him on his regular visits, His recovery has definitely been helped by having sessions in the water treadmill, followed by his massage & laser treatment.

Prince was a bit nervous having come from the shelter, but Alia didn’t rush him and he soon realised she was one of the good ones and was more than happy to keep going back.

We have an hours drive to take Prince to see Alia but its more than worth it, to know he’s getting the best treatment he could with someone he’s relaxed and happy to be with.

Prince as gone from being on painkillers and having short 10 minute walks to having at least two hour daily walks pain free with no need for medication”.

Scott, Prince’s owner.

“Excellent service, my dogs feel safe and comfortable in every session. I would definitely recommend Alia to all dog owners who require physio/hydro after surgery or suffering with arthritic symptoms. I see a noticeable difference after each session”. Lyn, owner of Archie and Emma. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Kali’s cruciate ligament required an extensive repair operation and she had severe bruising over most of her hind quarter, all for the pleasure of chasing a rabbit! Some six weeks after the operation, when Kali was continuing to avoid bearing weight on the leg, we were referred by our vet to Cotswold Vet Physio.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Alia is a very proficient Veterinary Physiotherapist who was able to apply a broad scope of treatment including massage, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, red phototherapy, as well as the underwater treadmill sessions. We were even given homework in the form of sets of daily exercises for Kali!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It has been a long road, but after several months of perseverance, Alia’s treatment has restored Kali’s mobility to at least 90% and her gait appears almost normal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We have been very impressed with Alia’s knowledge of her subject and her empathy with our dog. This, together with her attention to detail, has meant that she has picked up quickly on any subtle changes in Kali’s symptoms and been able to address them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Alia has also been able to advise us on the amount and intensity of daily exercise which is most beneficial for Kali, so that we neither over- nor under-exercise her, thereby maintaining her physical health at an optimum level.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We would definitely recommend anyone to take their dog to Alia if it suffers from mobility problems. She provides a highly professional, competent and friendly service – and she genuinely cares about your animal. ” Duncan- Kali’s owner.

 ”Poppy has been receiving treatment since her cast came off her fractured hind leg. 

She has done so well with the care she’s received at Cotswold Vet Physio. She has been using the water treadmill since her first session and is going from strength to strength (literally) since. 

Alia is very patient, caring and encouraging to Poppy, who is a live wire. Poppy’s sessions in the water treadmill have increased in length of time and her leg is doing so well. She has benefited so much already and will continue to do, I’ve no doubt at all. I’m so very grateful for all the help she has had and will continue to have”. David, Poppy’s owner

“I can highly recommend Alia for Physio treatment for your dog – not only has she a great understanding of the physiology of a dog and appropriate treatment needs but she is an obvious dog/animal lover from the way she handles them. My little Yorkie Benny has benefited greatly from visits after his cruciate ligament tear and also with his arthritis, in particular (but not only) due to her fabulous water treadmill. She has carefully and steadily built up the amount he exercises on it and given us an exercise regime to do at home for continuing to build his muscles in between sessions, building on it only after careful questioning on how he’s doing and assessing his progress. Thank you Alia for all your fantastic help with Benny!” Valerie, Benny’s owner.

“Alia came highly recommended by our Vet to help with our chocolate labradors hip dysplasia and we can now see why after starting our sessions a few months ago. We have seen so much of an improvement in Boris and all the help, advice and support has been invaluable for us to get Boris back to enjoying his walks again. The facilities at Cotswold Physio are excellent and Boris loves getting in the treadmill!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Alia is caring and shows dedication to making Boris get back to his bouncy self. We would highly recommend Cotswold Physio and really appreciate everything Alia has done to make Boris feel better”. Katie, Boris’s owner.
