Early physio following surgery aids recovery

Early intervention following surgery results in a quicker recovery and reduces the risk of complications.

Advice on how to help your pet recover

In many cases your physiotherapist will show you things to do at home to help your pet, such as massage, exercises and stretches.

Give your pet a new lease of life

To see a loved pet perform or do something they haven't done in years is always a joy to behold. We want the best for our pets and we will help this happen.

Can Animal Physio Help My Pet?

Animals are unable to tell us they need treatment, so you may have noticed that they are not quite right, possibly limping on a walk or stiff when they get up. They may be paying more attention to a part of their body than usual. It is important that they are checked over first by your veterinary surgeon, who will then be able to refer them for physiotherapy.

Canine Conditions Treated

Dogs are such a bundle of joy and fun to be with. It is upsetting to see them withdraw in pain and look to us to help them.

  1. Hip and elbow dysplasia / Fractures, trauma and soft tissue injuries
  2. Before and after orthopaedic surgery i.e cruciate surgery / Hip replacement / Reduced function stiffness and weakness in elderly animals.
  3. Obesity and weight management issues / Neurological conditions

Feline Conditions Treated

Cats are notorious for getting themselves in to trouble, curious by the nature the potential for getting injured is high.

  2. Fractures and dislocations / Nerve damage after road accidents / Limb amputation
  3. Infected open wounds / abscesses
