Following surgery, physiotherapy can help to promote recovery by reducing pain, improving function and weightbearing. Physiotherapy can often be started early on with the consent of your vet. With simple but effective treatment and exercises your pets recovery progress can be enhanced and any compensations can be minimised.

Body checkups are good to make sure your dog is in full working order to carry on with the work that they are being asked to do. Assessment of your dog can identify any potential muscle imbalances or joint limitations that they may have. Physiotherapy can help to treat any limitations aiming to enhance performance but also be effective in assisting recovery from soft tissue or joint injury.

Veterinary consent is obtained before any animal undertakes veterinary physiotherapy. Referrals may be direct from your veterinary surgeon or by direct contact from yourself.

Through effective communication with your veterinary surgeon and physiotherapist, your animal’s condition will be managed holistically to promote effective management. Your veterinary surgeon will be kept informed of your animal’s progress.

All sessions are catered for the individual characteristics of your pet. From the first session trust is obtained by good handling and appreciation of your animal’s condition. If you are concerned that your animal may not tolerate physiotherapy due to behavioural problems then please discuss this with Sarah as often, given the correct environmental situation many pets learn to enjoy their physiotherapy treatment.

Any questions you may have as an owner will be answered and you will gain an insight into your animal’s condition and how it can be managed.

Many insurance companies appreciate the role of physiotherapy within your pet's care. Depending on your policy your insurance provider may cover the cost. Please see individual policies as appropriate. Reports are provided for insurance claims as required.
