About your appointments

Make an appointment

Hello, my name is Mr Sam. How may I help you?

The first appointment will probably last between 60 to 90 minutes as I will need to ask you some questions about your dog and take some initial assessments. Subsequent therapy sessions will probably last between 45 to 60 minutes depending on how your dog is improving. But all treatments will be arranged to suit you and your dog.

To make an appointment phone me, Dr Les Ellam, on 07544 844120
or email : achypaw@gmail.com (Click here for contact form)

Consultation and treatments can either take place in the AchyPaw treatment room in Saltdean or in the comfort of your own home.  The cost is £35 per session, although a small travel fee may have to be added for travel outside the local area but this would be arranged before the first session.

We do not make you to sign up for a specific course or number of sessions as each dog has different needs. You may find that you need only one treatment or that a series might be beneficial. Some dogs come monthly to keep up the good work.  Discounts might be available for block bookings or multiple dogs.

Most pet insurance companies cover complementary therapy including massage and myotherapy so it is advisable to check with them.  I am a member of the International Association of Animal Therapists which many insurance companies require.

I always work within the confines of the law and will never work on a dog without gaining prior veterinary consent. I abide by the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemption Order 1962. It is the responsibility of the your own veterinary surgeon to diagnose, but I will always work with them and keep them informed of the chosen course of treatment. Before I can work on your dog, you will need to ask your vet to sign a referral form for myotherapy which can be obtained from clicking this link. There is typically no charge for completion of this form from your vet.
