Healing and rejuvenating your pet to their full potential

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain, increase muscle mass and improve gait patterns through the means of manual therapy (massage and stretching), electrotherapy and devising a suitable, remedial exercise programme for your pet.

Physiotherapeutic intervention is highly recommended for:

  • Muscular soreness
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Muscle wastage
  • Neurological conditions
  • Joint disorders (e.g. hip dysplasia)
  • Post-operatively
  • Geriatric patients
  • Management advice

Massage is one physiotherapeutic technique which is highly beneficial for maintaining correct muscular tone, mass and increasing blood circulation. Massage is best performed in a quiet safe environment where the animal can relax – tutorials can be given at the surgery or alternatively, home visits are available.
