GA PT State Board Meeting Minutes
Animal Rehabilitation (last updated 29 March 2017)
Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants should be advised that the Georgia Physical Therapy Act does not appear to grant individuals licensed under that statute the authority to perform animal rehabilitation in the state of Georgia. The Board encourages physical therapists to review the Veterinary Practice Act, specifically O.C.G.A. § 43-50-3(11) for additional guidance
In the ever-changing environment that is the physical therapy profession, it is the clinician’s responsibility to stay abreast of any state and federal legislative and regulatory issues and be prepared to promote the profession.
