Terms and Conditions

Welcome to our website. These terms and conditions (“Agreement”) set forth the general terms and conditions of your use of the alphaanimalphysio.com (“website” or “service”) and any related products and services (collectively “services”) provided by Alpha Animal Physiotherapy Ltd. This Agreement is a legally binding contract between you, the customer (“client”, “user”, “you” or “your”) and Alpha Animal Physiotherapy Ltd. (“us”, “we” or “our”), even though it is electronic and not physically signed by you. By accessing and using this website and our services, you acknowledge you have read, understood and agree to these terms and conditions in full. 

Veterinary Referrals and Owner Consent

Prior to a visit from us, you must identify whether your animal is receiving physiotherapy for maintenance purposes (i.e. is healthy to your knowledge, with no ongoing or underlying health conditions, and your animal has been seen by their registered veterinary practice within the last 12 months). If this is the case an “Owner Consent Form” must be completed in full prior to any visit taking place. 

If your animal does have a health condition, a recent injury or is not otherwise fit and healthy, a referral from your registered veterinary practice will be required prior to any visit taking place. This ensures that your Veterinary Surgeon has seen this animal and knows its current health status. The “Veterinary Referral Form” must be completed in full by your registered veterinary practice prior to any visit taking place. This is a requirement under The Veterinary Surgeons (Exemptions) Order 2015, should this not be completed and returned prior to an appointment, the appointment will be cancelled, and you will need to reschedule. 

Please see "Referral" page for more information and to access these forms.

Payment and Travel Expenses

All fees for services provided by us are payable upon the day of treatment unless otherwise approved by Rhiannon Kelsall (“Director”). Fees will be shown on a detailed invoice provided after a treatment session. Milage is charged at 45 pence per mile calculated from the business address. If more than one animal is being seen at the same address on the same day, this milage charge can be split between the animals' owners. 

Payment can be made via cash (with a receipt provided for your records) or BACS (see invoice for details). Any queries regarding your account should be raised within 14 days of the date of invoicing. We reserve the right to charge 2% interest per month on any account not paid within 21 days of the date of invoice. Any unpaid accounts may be pursued in any manner we deem appropriate; any cost incurred by us in recovering unpaid accounts will be passed to the respective client. 

Cancellation Policy

Whilst it is understandable that on occasions extenuating circumstances may arise forcing you to cancel your appointment, in other occasions a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required for any cancellations, if this is not met, we reserve the right to charge 50% of the appointment cost. 

Complaints
