*IMPORTANT NOTE*

Due to the nature of the Trust Technique, you do not need the consent of the client’s vet to practice the Trust Technique, however it is always recommended, (and is good practice) that, as a practitioner, you do liaise with the client’s vet (with the client’s permission).

 

Important points to adhere be aware of and adhere to:

 

  1. The Trust Technique is non diagnostic

As practitioners we are not offering veterinary advice.

Information that does come up in the state of Regard is for the client to follow and make decisions on.  You, as the practitioner, do not, under any circumstances, diagnose or make decisions on behalf of the animal’s carer.

  1. No treatment is ever offered

 

As practitioners we never physically manipulate the animal in any way. Our work does not require touch.
