Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 & Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 2015
Section 19(1) of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 makes it illegal for any person to treat an animal unless they are a veterinary surgeon or legally exempted.
The treatment provided by Helen Jacks-Hewett under Section 2 of the Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 2015 requires the prior consent of the animal's veterinary surgeon. Therefore Helen always verifies that veterinary permission has been sought before treatment.
Chiropractors Act 1994
One of the techniques that Helen uses is McTimoney animal chiropractic.
Helen is a graduate of McTimoney College of Chiropractic (University of Wales) and is fully qualified and insured to practice McTimoney animal chiropractic.
Helen Jacks-Hewett is not qualified to practice on humans and is therefore not a chiropractor and is not registered with the General Chiropractic Council. In compliance with Section 32 of the Chiropractors Act 1994, Helen Jacks-Hewett does not describe herself as a chiropractor.
