About Me

Transition Veterinary Physiotherapy is owned by, Emma-Jayne Bailey, a BSc Hons Veterinary Physiotherapy graduate from Harper Adams University.

I have been surrounded by animals for my whole life, as a young adult I competed in all disciplines of horse riding as an individual and team, through pony club and regional shows, as well as representing my College and University. I have also been lucky enough to have family dog whilst growing up which provide great joy and companionship. All of which led me to pursue a career in Veterinary Physiotherapy, during my time at University I become more involved with working dogs and competition animals which has been a keen interest of mine since qualifying.

As part of my degree completed a placement year within industry, working at a small animal veterinary practice and an equine rehabilitation yard gaining experience in the use of aqua treadmill. This year provided me with invaluable practical experience within the industry and I am incredibly grateful to my employers for that. This time sparked an interest in canine and equine hydrotherapy and post-operative veterinary physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy aims to provide a treatment that is non-invasive supporting musculoskeletal, neurological conditions as well as post and pre-operative conditions using an individually developed treatment plan. It also provides support for senior pets that have begun to struggle with their daily routine, this passion for supporting senior and arthritis pets has led me to become a Canine Arthritis Management team member, their link can be found below. Physiotherapy can provide support for every individual whether it is performance enhancement or maintenance care, we aim to provide each animal with a high-quality life.
