Louisa Purkiss

Louisa has 10+ years of experience working with animals.​ Her passion for veterinary physiotherapy began when her rescue lurcher, Narla, suffered a chronic shoulder injury. The effect veterinary physiotherapy had on Narla was invaluable, and inspired Louisa to pursue a career in making animals' lives more comfortable. Louisa qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist in 2020 after completing academic research into the injury prevalence in racing greyhounds, with a specific focus on injury prevention. During her time at university, she also achieved an Equinology Equine Body Worker qualification (EEBW) and engaged in a work placement where she had the opportunity to contribute to the Retraining of Racehorses (ROR) initiative. Louisa has a particular passion for treating rescue animals and rehab cases, as she loves to witness the growth that animals are capable of making.
