SAAPRA Conference 2018

Cape Town, Western Cape
Friday, 19 October 2018

Introduction to SAAPRA:

The South African Animal Physical Rehabilitation Association (SAAPRA) was established in 2015 as a
necessity in the promulgation procedure of the Veterinary Physiotherapy para-veterinary profession.
We have since been the mouthpiece between members of the Animal Rehabilitation profession and
the South African Veterinary Council, ensuring that all members of the community remained up to
date and informed of the progress of the promulgation of the Veterinary Physiotherapy para-
veterinary profession, and that the SAVC is kept aware of the concerns raised by members
throughout this process.

We are very happy to be able to say that in December of 2017, Veterinary Physiotherapy was
promulgated as a para-veterinary profession, and that we are now in the process of registering all
members of the Animal Rehabilitation community with the SAVC.

In October 2017 we hosted our first annual Conference in Cape Town, which was a massive success.
We had over 30 attendees, great lecturers and a very productive and fruitful time together as
professionals and friends. It is very important to us at this time to foster a spirit of unity and support
amongst Animal Rehabilitation Professionals, and this event is one of the ways we are working to
achieve that unity.
