Sophie Louise Dyke

Veterinary Physiotherapist

Sophie graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Equine Science in 2014 and went on to obtain a Postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Writtle College University in 2017 and was able to treat all species of animals. Following graduation, Sophie set up her mobile Veterinary Physiotherapy business, where she worked with mainly dogs and horses. Sophie became especially interested in canine osteoarthritis and was concerned by the large number of cases seen in her practice. She began questioning why so many cases were left untreated and simply put down to ‘old age’ and began her MSc dissertation investigating ‘potential barriers to diagnosis, treatment, management and rehabilitation of canine osteoarthritis’. The study involved research into the disease from both vets and owners’ experiences and identified some important barriers for each that contribute to lack of treatment.

Sophie is a member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP) and is fully insured to treat both in-patients and out-patients. She loves her job and has a particular interest in orthopaedic rehabilitation. Sophie undertakes continual professional development days to keep up to date with the most current research and practices. She enjoys spending time with and walking her dogs, Lola the Labrador, and Jimmy the Jack Russell puppy.
