Dogs and Cats

Physiotherapy for your pet can be part of their routine maintenance or in response to a specific condition or issue that they may be experiencing. Physiotherapy in canines and felines has become increasingly popular due to the numerous range of conditions that can be improved using a variety of physiotherapy techniques.

Your pet's assessment will be carried out at your home with the initial appointment lasting approximately 60 minutes. Assessment includes analysis of your dog or cats movement followed by a thorough evaluation of the joints and soft tissues. Indicated treatment will then be provided alongside a home exercise programme for you to continue with in order to optimise the treatment effects.
