Land and Water based Canine Physiotherapy in Cheltenham
“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!”

“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” ⠀⠀⠀⠀

”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
“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
“Chudleigh was in a very sorry state when he met Alia following surgery for a ruptured disc but over the months with her care and expertise he is well on the road to recovery. Alia has a great way with dogs- she has managed to earn the love of this most particularly nervous/ grumpy terrier who is always keen for our visits and leaves each seasons pain free and happy”
Bryony, Chudleigh’s owner
Alia clearly ADORES animals and is kind and sensitive to their needs. Chansey totally trust her and her movement is improving with each visit.
Jackie, Chansey’s owner
Our dog Dino was always happy to visit Alia ( many, many times) and particularly liked her supply of treats!
John, Dino’s owner
“Alia is very professional, caring, knowledgeable and loves animals. Willow is a very nervous dog in new situations and Alia immediately put her at ease. Furthermore, her physio did the trick and Willow is now back to normal exercise. Thoroughly recommend. Thank you Alia”
Carol and Brian, Willow’s owners
“Alia is so knowledgeable and gentle. My dog is shy and Alia was brilliant with him. Within minutes he was snuggling into her arms and completely relaxed. Under her guidance, my dog is making progress. I am delighted to have found her and can’t recommend Alia highly enough”
Joy, Gerry’s owner
Gus our English springer spaniel received superb attention when recovering from two cruciate ligament operations and then arthritis during cancer treatment in his later years. He loved the treatment sessions and then sniffing out the treats at the end. Thank you for all the genuine care given to him over the years.
Melanie, Gus’ owner
A few months ago we inherited a sheltie, Jamie, who arrived with us with severe problems with his hips and in great pain. Over the last six months Alia has worked on him with fantastic results. Throughout our visits she has worked professionally with good rapport with Jamie (and us!) and she has always fully explained his treatment and the exercises we had to do with him. Incredibly as far as we are concerned we only have to say her name and he is at the door eager to go for treatment! All we can really say is a huge ‘thank you’ to Alia for giving us a young dog who is now virtually free from pain and who has a real joy for life.
