About Me.


Ryan Wharton BSc(Hons) VetPhys MNAVP MCHA    
Veterinary Physiotherapist and Canine Hydrotherapist


We believe that dogs sometimes don't get the after-care treatment they so wish following surgery or injury, to help with their recovery back to normal function to live a happy and healthy life. RawPhysio was launched in 2019 as a service to help rehabilitate these dogs, through the use of veterinary physiotherapy techniques and educating owners to ensure their dogs are well on their way to making a healthy recovery. 

We feel that a multi-modal approach to rehabilitation is key, because of this, we work very closely with Choice Hydrotherapy to ensure that dogs also benefit from water-based treatments too. We also communicate with veterinary teams working collaboratively to achieve the best results for your dog.

"I started my journey after completing an Animal Management Extended Diploma at Stafford College in 2014 which included a placement module within a veterinary practice which I loved, I believe this encouraged me to work within the veterinary industry. Since then, I have graduated from Moreton Morrell College in 2019 after studying a three-year Veterinary Physiotherapy degree to become a fully qualified Veterinary Physiotherapist. More recently in 2021, I have completed an ABC Level 3 Canine Hydrotherapy course with Hawksmoor Hydrotherapy to become a qualified Canine Hydrotherapist. I have always had a real love and passion for the health and welfare of all dogs. My desire for pursuing a veterinary career was also through the presence of my late childhood dog and friend, Jessie.



Outside of work, I have a passion for running, staying active, and going for adventurous walks with my partner and whippets, Mylo and Moss."
