Holly Chiles 
IMSc Veterinary Physiotherapy

I graduated from university in 2022 with a intergrated masters in veterinary physiotherapy. Since then I have held a number of positions in the canine rehabilitation industry alongside running my own veterinary physiotherapy business.

My main interest is in post operative rehabilitation and I love seeing the progress made from early post op care to seeing the new lease of life surgery and rehabilitation offers animals. 

Megan Ridler
Veterinary Physiotherapist Mvetphys

I qualified with a Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Writtle in 2021. I have grown up with animals and have busy life taking care of our horses and rescued German shorthaired pointers. Over the years I have competed to an international level, travelling all over Europe and as far as South Africa. Competing to a high level has meant I have experienced various problems with my horses, that required input from a physiotherapist.

In addition, over the years my dogs have also endured different injuries which have required both conservative and surgical rehabilitation, these various experiences have driven my keen interest in physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

I have over 3 years’ experience working in this industry, before barkers I also worked in a professional rehabilitation centre. Working at Barkers enables me to work in an environment that I love, whilst rehabilitating and managing our clients specific needs.

Marzia Cavagnero
L3 Canine Hydrotherapist

My name is Marzia and I originally come from Italy. I moved to the UK back in 1992 after finishing my studies and gaining a diploma in travel and tourism.

I have worked in various areas including the airline industry, tour operators, accounting and finance. I have also been a qualified fitness instructor since 2004.

My life now pretty much revolves around taking care of dogs, which has been a passion of mine from a very young age. I made the decision to re-train and focus on this in 2022.

I have studied and qualified as a Small Animal Hydrotherapist and hold a Level 3 Certificate (RQF) so that I can help to improve the quality of life for dogs who are suffering from muscular-skeletal issues or recovering from surgery.

I love my job and it makes me very happy to know that I am helping to make a positive difference to the lives of the animals I treat.
