Dog Physiotherapy

Your dog is part of the family, and when their quality of life or ability to move around becomes difficult, we have to try our best to get them back on their feet again. Your dog's mobility may be hindered by a range of different issues. Dog Physiotherapy is used to treat a range of diseases, injury and deformities and also to help improve recovery after surgery through the use of a range of methods such as massage, laser therapy, heat treatment and exercise.

The aim of Pet Physiotherapy is to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, reduce pain and restore mobility and function. Canine Physiotherapy can also be used for performance enhancement in athletic and working animals. If your pet has had surgery, an injury, or a disease, physiotherapy can be a key part of the rehabilitation process.

Just like humans dogs can suffer with a variety of conditions, illnesses or injuries at times within their lives which can affect their mobility, movement, muscle strength and function. These can include acute injuries such as fractures or soft tissue injuries which require a period of rehabilitation or conditions such as hip dysplasia or arthritis which may require longer term management.

Dogs can also suffer from neurological conditions and spinal injuries which can affect balance, coordination and in severe cases complete loss of mobility. In each case, when working in conjunction with your vet, physiotherapy can assist with maintaining or improving your dog’s level of function and quality of life.
