The Gold Standard in Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy for dogs

Physiotherapy for Dogs

Animals, like people, respond to Physiotherapy. The purpose of physiotherapy for animals is to restore and maintain mobility, function, independence and performance.

Unfortunately injuries and accidents can happen which will effect your animals mobility and general well being. They can also suffer from orthopaedic and neurological conditions which can present themselves at any stage of your pets life. These conditions can cause pain and discomfort which if left will effect your pets quality of life and cause compensatory issues. We want to see our pets happy and get them back to doing what they do best. A combination of evidence based therapeutic techniques can help them in their recovery and maintenance.

Physiotherapy checks are also advised for our competitive and working dogs. Regular checks can detect and treat early signs of muscle tension and asymmetry before they go on to cause injury. It is also a good idea to involve land based exercises to their training regime’s to help with muscle strength and tone. ​

Manual Therapies

These therapies include soft and deep tissue massage, trigger point release, passive stretching, gentle joint mobilisations and passive range of motion exercises. Used to treat compensatory issues and promote mobility by improving:

  • Flexibility
  • Muscle tone
  • Joint range of motion 

Home Exercises

Introduction of land based exercises and a revised walking regime and adaptions to the home environment can help increase muscle strength, improve proprioception and core stability, prevent injuries by removing slip/trip hazards and enhance your bond with your beloved pet. 

Electro Therapies

We predominantly use low level laser therapy. A combination of infrared and visible red light. The treatment protocols followed have been proven to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing. We also use pulsed electromagnetic therapy for fracture healing and to help relax my patients. Other electrotherapies include Ultrasound, TENS and EMS.
