Is the term animal physiotherapist protected by law in Ireland? Can a non-veterinarian, trained in animal massage and physiotherapy techniques legally work in ireland? Thanks?

Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.

1. No, the term "animal physiotherapist" is not protected by law in Ireland. Nor is there such a qualification known to the law in Ireland. Accordingly, anyone can call themselves an "animal physiotherapist" and provide services of this nature in Ireland. There is no need to have a veterinarian qualification nor are non veterinarians prevented from holding themselves out as animal physiotherapists. So, a non veterinarian trained in animal massage and physiotherapy techniques can legally work in Ireland as an animal physiotherapist.
