Hi, I'm Eleanor the Owner of ER Vet Physio. We are based in Stourbridge in the west midlands and cover the west midlands and Worcestershire as a rough guide.
From a young age, animals have always fascinated me. Not just the way they look, but how they move and communicate. Hence why at age 12 I knew I wanted to be an animal physio.
At the age of 7 years old I began horse riding lessons. Roughly 7 years later after many hours volunteering at stable clubs, I began working at a riding school as a stable hand and teaching lead lessons. From this, my passion for wanting to understand why animals acted a certain way and why they may be "naughty" was in full bloom. This led me to want to help others understand what may be causing the "naughty" behavior.
Due to my work ethic, at age 16 I was given the opportunity to get more equine experience outside of a riding school. As well as hands-on experience with sheep, cattle, and chickens.
Not forgetting dogs, before commencing university I wanted to gain professional experience working with dogs. I had only handled friends’ and families’ pet dogs previously. Once a week I volunteered at a canine hydrotherapy pool, where I watched dogs being swam and dried them off post-swim.
