Kerrie Oakley - Veterinary Physiotherapist & Hydrotherapist
Kerrie began working within the veterinary industry in 2001, originally as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. During this time Kerrie worked in various practices specialising in small animal, livestock and orthopaedic referral.
In 2008 Kerrie made the transition into teaching and lectured and trained Veterinary Nursing students as well as taught specialist subjects to the Animal Science division at a local Agricultural College. While teaching Kerrie obtained a teaching qualification from Portsmouth University.
In 2012 Kerrie decided to go back into education and studied veterinary physiotherapy qualifying in 2014. Kerrie has been treating a range of animals from dogs, horses to livestock since and decided this clearly wasn’t enough, so recently went on to study further in Canine Hydrotherapy!
Kerrie has a keen interest in pain management and kinesiology (how things move!).
