Zoe has been involved with animals from a young age. As a teenager she served on the Childrens Committee at London Zoo, one of only 16 to be asked to sit on the committee from over 5000 applications. During this time she got to work closely with a range of exotic animals, observing and understanding their behaviour in captivity.
Zoe went on to study Biology at university, during which time she participated in a study trip to Kenya to observe a number of species in their wild habitats.
Zoe later progressed from Biological Research into Veterinary Physiotherapy, completing a Masters, Diploma and Advanced Certificate in Animal Physiotherapy after attempting to find methods for improving her own horse's performance, and being blown away by the results achieved using a physiotherapist.
Zoe not only rides and competes her own horses at National level, but is also passionate about showing both dogs and cats at the highest National and International level. She understands the requirement for maintaining optimum performance in competition animals, as well as the need for comfort and well-being in happy hackers and pampered pets.
Being a scientist by training, Zoe understands the importance of physiotherapy in all animals, whether it be to improve performance, assist with recovery from surgery, or to maintain an optimum quality of life.
Zoe has her own stable yard near Stowmarket in Suffolk, and is able to take in veterinary referral and rehabilitation cases. She also has kennels and a cattery and is able to care for small animals recovering from surgery and in need of intensive physiotherapy.
Zoe regularly travels overseas to attend CPD, as well as treating some exotic animals (including elephants!) primarily in rescue centres and animal sanctuaries.
