Nikki is currently the highest qualified hydrotherapist in Northumberland. She holds a Level 3 Advanced Diploma in hydrotherapy for small animals. Nikki worked for almost 10 years at Newcastle airport as check-in/aircraft despatcher/cabin crew but wanted a complete career change that included her love for dogs especially working gundogs as she saw the benefits water has on their body after a day out picking up on shoots. Nikki currently has three working cocker spaniels and is aiming for 10 so she has a full set, one in every colour.
Nikki studied at world renowned Hawksmoor Hydrotherapy Centre in Nuneaton and qualified to the highest level currently on the national framework, a level 3 Diploma in hydrotherapy for small animals with additional certificates in Treadmill therapy, advanced treadmill therapy techniques and rehab of the cruciate/patella disease and surgical procedures.
Nikki is very passionate about her profession and is keen to promote management of our elderly patients with a multimodual approach, where hydrotherapy plays a big part in. Nikki takes a keen interest in new current orthopaedic procedures and works closely with our orthopaedic team to discuss cases. Regular CPD and courses is attended to improve Nikki knowledge that she can pass on to owners to improve the life’s of our beloved pets.
