Whether your pet is recovering from injury, managing a long-term condition such as arthritis or spinal disease, training for competition, needing to lose weight, looking to improve muscle condition, or simply wanting to have fun and build up their fitness, we can help.

With the assistance of our specialist rehabilitation team, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your pet’s quality of life has been improved.

The rehabilitation treatments that we offer work to enhance traditional surgical and medical care. Our services include: hydrotherapy, class four laser therapy, acupuncture, physiotherapy, dietary advice, and therapeutic exercise prescriptions.

Treatment is given by veterinary referral. Each patient is assessed by Veterinary Surgeon Rayana Kamal, who creates a tailored treatment plan designed to ensure the best results for your pet. The rehabilitation centre will move to Aldgate Veterinary Hospital in Bridlington, when it opens later this year, with parking available on site, and facilities for hospitalised and day patients in addition to full standard veterinary care. However, rehabilitation services offered by Rayana and the team will still be available in Driffield.

I am a Level 4 qualified Canine Hydrotherapist and I have been working in the hydrotherapy world for over two years now. I joined Aldgate in October 2022. Alongside my hydrotherapy training and qualifications, I completed qualifications in Animal Management and Welfare at Bishop Burton College which has allowed me to expand my knowledge and improve my care for all my patients. I am so excited to be a part of Aldgate’s new rehabilitation team and cannot wait to start treating patients in the amazing new hospital.

Prior to joining Aldgate Vets, I served 7 years in the military as an Administrative Specialist. Having always been passionate about animal rehabilitation and welfare, I have achieved a variety of qualifications including studies into Advanced Canine Behaviour and am now studying towards the Level 3 Small Animal Hydrotherapy Diploma. Outside of work I enjoy surfing with my partner and beach walks with my rescue dog, Cooper. I also volunteer at my local animal rescue and over the years I have gained lots of handling experience with a variety of animals. Having decided to make a career change to become a Hydrotherapist, I’m grateful to be part of the rehab team at Aldgate and am excited for what the future holds.

I hold a degree in Canine Behaviour Management from the university of Hull and i’m now working as a Hydrotherapy Assistant at Aldgate vets. Prior to joining the practice I worked as a dog trainer and I’m a full member of the APDT (association of pet dog trainers).

Currently I’m working towards becoming a qualified behaviourist with the APBC. I’m keen to understand more about the association between pain and behaviour and how the rehabilitation team can support overall wellbeing.
