About Me

Stephanie Morgan, BSc (Hons), MSc Vet Phys, MNAVP

Having grown up in an animal mad family, surrounded by horses, cats, dogs and a host of small furred and feathered pets, I began working with animals aged 15, when I started work as a part-time veterinary receptionist alongside studying for my GCSEs. After completing my A-Levels, I went to the University of Wales, Aberystywyth, to study Equine Science, graduating with my BSc (Hons) in 2003. I spent a year in Equine practice as an Equine Veterinary Assistant and Yard Manager before returning to small animal practice as a Client Accounts Manager and progressing to the role of Practice Manager, which I have held in both First-Opinion and Referral practices.

While I enjoyed the challenges of practice management and the people with whom I worked, I longed to be working with animals again and in 2012 began studying for my post-graduate diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy with Harper-Adams University. I graduated in 2014 and began treating animals in the South-East of England while continuing to work full-time as a Veterinary Practice Manager. In July 2015 my fiancée and I relocated to Norfolk, where I began to offer private canine and equine appointments as well as working part-time for a world-renowned small animal referral centre just outside Newmarket, treating orthopaedic and neurology inpatients as well as outpatients, including the use of an underwater treadmill. During this time, I completed my Masters Research Project and achieved my MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy in September 2017. I now offer appointments for canine and feline patients in a fabulous small animal Veterinary Practice in Watton and see both canine and equine cases privately outside my "normal" working hours. I offer both evening and Saturday appointments to fit in with my clients' busy work schedules!

When I can find a spare moment, I am also busy caring for my own dogs and horses, and am a keen competitor in eventing, dressage and show jumping. At a moment, I am in the interesting in-between phase, having very sadly recently lost my lovely 22-year-old mare, Dancer, and bringing on my home-produced warmblood and my ex-racehorse to (hopefully) begin their eventing careers. I have therefore decided to start a blog which charts the highs and lows of retraining babies whilst trying to fit in building a business, holding down a job (or two), oh, and juggling this with a new (human) baby! Just go to the Flying Physio tab to find out about our latest shenanigans.
