Butterwick Animal Rehab Clinic is Teesside’s longest running, and most highly qualified, canine rehabilitation centre (something we are a little proud of). We achieved this by providing a good honest service which gets great results and have treated over a thousand dogs since we started. The clinic invests heavily in both equipment and education for our therapists because we are passionate about making a difference. We are proud members of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association and our animal physio is an assoc. member of IRVAP. With Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy (pool, underwater treadmill), we can offer a complete rehabilitation package for your pet.

BARC's primary focus is to provide an individual, high quality service. We have created a practice that we believe in, even for our own family members/pets. Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your animal physiotherapist, has one goal in mind - to help your dog feel better. You'll always be greeted with a smile and leave with an even bigger one on your face.

Our committed, caring and friendly outpatient rehabilitation clinic is staffed with an Veterinary Physiotherapist and Canine Hydrotherapists . The Team consists of a Veterinary physiotherapist (Mark Harding) and two Canine Hydrotherapists (Helen Gosling and Chloe Fenwick) at our clinic. Additionally, we have a practice manager (Wendy) who deals with much of the administration behind the scenes.

We pride ourselves on being a family owned business focused on getting your dog back to their former glory.  Whether it's post surgery rehabilitation, maintaining your pet in old age or just to help lose a few pounds, we will work alongside you and your vet to ensure your dog gets the very best care and individual attention they deserve to restore them to peak performance.
