Afternoon Session (2.5 hours with coffee break) 13:15 - 15:45hrs

Tony Nevin - Osteopath

Tony Nevin

Lecture: Osteopathy and the treatment of exotic animals - the last 28 years by Tony Nevin

This presentation will look at the challenges, protocols, and experiences of applying osteopathy to unorthodox patients over the last 28 years of Tony's exciting career. He will look at changes in working attitudes, health and safety matters, and advances in osteopathic medicine. He will also share with you the journey made by one incredible osteopath, and the realisation of how much we still have to learn as individuals and as a profession.

For anyone that thinks they have seen it all, and treated every condition. This presentation will highlight that we will never see it all, or treat it all.

Tony's Biography

Tony graduated from the ESO in 1988. After a brief spell working in the Far East he returned to the UK, joining a busy practice in Newbury, whilst setting up his clinics in Cheltenham and Stroud.

Within a year he had spent time observing and shadowing both Stuart McGregor, and Anthony Pusey when they treated animals. Soon after he attended Anthony’s Guernsey teaching weekends.

Tony’s passion lay in discovering whether osteopathy could help in conservation of endangered species. To this end he canvassed several wildlife hospitals, and zoo’s with breeding programs. Vale Wildlife Hospital gave Tony his first experience of working with wildlife, and his baptism by fire was in the shape of badgers, deer, raptors, and water fowl to name but a few. Twycross Zoo then took up his offer with the first exotic species he was asked to look at being South American Tapir, Chimpanzee, and Asian Elephant.

From fumbling in the dark with these amazing creatures, and with no precedent set for him to follow, Tony set about creating protocols for this type of work. The difference in handling, and working within a team around dangerous patients is a world away from that found within domestic veterinary clinics, and even veterinary medicine uses a lot more guess work when compared to equine and small animal practice.

Since 1989 Tony has continued to build a substantial body of clinical knowledge, as well as having papers published to back this up. He has been a regular on the lecture and conference speaker’s circuit, was a founder member of SOAP, and has been clinical director on the masters program in animal osteopathy, run in conjunction with the McTimoney College for the past 11 years.

Tony also runs regular workshops and CPD training days, as well as his bespoke wildlife workshops in the more exotic settings of Africa and Northern Thailand. Tony has strong links with many of the overseas osteopathic schools and regularly lectures for their students.

Tony has written sections for several animal therapy books, and is currently editing the first text book to cover the osteopathic treatment of mammals, birds, and reptiles, of which he is a co-author.

In the near future Tony has TV series coming up, which expands on cameo’s he has done for the likes of The One Show, and Animal Park, as well as hosting his own radio show for Corinium Radio covering conversational aspects of osteopathy for people and animals.
