Veterinary physiotherapy can benefit all types of pets. Let's try and answer some common questions:
Will physiotherapy help my dog
What are the benefits of physiotherapy for dogs
What kind of physiotherapy exercises will be used
If my pet is insured, is it possible to claim for the cost of physiotherapy
I think my pet might benefit from physiotherapy – so what next
Our physiotherapists provide specialist treatments for dogs that help in reducing pain, increase the range of movement in limbs and joints and lessening the impact or effects of certain injuries, aiding in their recovery or improving their quality of life.
Physiotherapy treatment can improve the wellbeing of a wide variety of dog breeds suffering from all kinds of health issues – from neurological conditions to soft tissue damage.
Will Physiotherapy help my dog
Animal physiotherapy is a scientifically approved practice, which means that the techniques used by our Highly qualified therapist have been proven to work.
Your dog may benefit from physiotherapy if it:
Has recently undergone surgery on a damaged limb or joint
Suffers from conditions like arthritis, hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia among many others.
Is experiencing spinal problems
Struggles with rage related educed mobility
Experiences muscle spasms, muscle tightness or has muscle knots
Has damaged nerves or ligaments
What are the benefits of Physiotherapy for dogs.
Physiotherapy may help to reduce physical discomfort your dog may be feeling, but it may also help to prevent more serious health problems later in life. If your dog suffers for example from arthritis in one joint, the other joints may experience wear due to overcompensating.
Our physiotherapist can help to treat the initial problem, improving the dog’s long-term quality of life.
Physiotherapy can also assist your dogs recovery from surgery or injury and can slow down the progression of long-term conditions too.
