Physiotherapy, and massage in particular, is a relaxing experience for your dog which can positively impact their mental, as well as physical, wellbeing.
Physiotherapy can be hugely beneficial for your dog following trauma, injury or surgery. A vet may refer you for physiotherapy to help rehabilitate your dog following orthopaedic surgery such as:
- Cruciate ligament surgery
- Spinal surgery
- Hip replacement or Femoral Head Removal
For degenerative conditions such as:
- Hip dysplasia
- Elbow dysplasia
- CDRM (Chronic degenerative radiculomyelopathy)
For our ageing four-legged friends suffering with stiffening joints, decreased muscle mass and those with arthritis, physiotherapy can offer some much needed pain relief. During our therapy consultation I can provide you with simple, at home exercises which can greatly improve your dog’s strength and mobility and prolong their joint health.
For dogs competing in agility, working dogs or show dogs, physiotherapy can keep them looking and performing at their best as well as prevent injury by identifying areas or potential weakness and imbalance. An exercise plan can be devised at our consultation to ensure your dog continues to excel in their field.
