Animal Health Professions Register

The Level 4 Diploma offered by Animal Therapy Solutions is accredited by The Animal Health Professions’ Register

What is the AHPR?

The Animal Health Professions’ Register is a voluntary register which has been developed by representative professional associations of the animal health industry at the request of DEFRA, in preparation for the restructuring of regulation of the veterinary industry – particularly of animal therapy practitioners.

The Animal Health Professions Register represents practitioners from the following subgroups:

• Animal Chiropractic and Manipulation
• Animal Hydrotherapy
• Animal / Veterinary Physiotherapy
• Animal Sports Therapy and Massage

What are the aims of the AHPR?

The aim of the AHPR is to raise standards in the industry and assist animal owners and veterinary surgeons in ensuring that the professionals they use to assist in the treatment and maintenance of their or client’s animals are suitably trained and accountable.

All registrants have achieved an industry recognised appropriate standard of training through externally accredited courses, comply with Continuing Professional Development and hold full, valid professional indemnity insurance as required by the wider industry.
