Dr. Tanya Grantham qualified as a veterinarian in 1994. She is now the owner of Animal Health and Hydro, a facility dedicated to physical rehabilitation and pain management in dogs and cats. Aside from a burning desire to enhance the quality of life of her animal patients,
Dr. Tanya also loves to share her knowledge with veterinary professionals, pet owners and anyone that is interested in enhancing their life (and the lives of their companions) through information and skills. Her wildly improbable goal is to establish a foundation that supports all veterinary professionals on every level – be it physical, emotional, spiritual, personal or through business education, financial aid and learning skills that enhance our hands-on abilities.
Animal Health and Hydro has grown from a single person (and one facility) to a company that has a number of branches and also offers franchise opportunities for veterinary professionals. An internship program is being implemented and is aimed at new graduates in the veterinary and para-veterinary fields. Aside from the CIVT course – Canine Integrative Physical Rehabilitation – she has also created a number of online courses for pet owners. She has been involved in examining final year veterinary physiotherapy students for the preceding five years and recently took up a post as part-time lecturer at EquineLibrium College in South Africa.
She was one of eight international finalists for the IAVRPT (International Association of Veterinary Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy) Therapist of the year award 2020. Dr. Tanya loves to be with her animal companions (horses, dogs and cats). She is a keen trail runner and experiences great joy when she is running with her horse beside her.
