Veterinary Physiotherapy

Improve your dog's joint mobility, condition, proprioception to aid fluid movement and reduce the risk of injury through physiotherapy

Our RAMP registered Veterinary Physiotherapist focuses on the ‘Prehabilitation’ concept; the idea of maintenance physiotherapy to spot changes to the dog's movement or tissue state early and completing targeted exercises regularly to prevent the onset of injuries

Our Veterinary Physio services also form an important part of our Behaviour Assessments as pain contributes to a range of behaviour issues and it's crucial we look at the dog as a whole.

What's included in a Veterinary Physiotherapy Consultation?

  1. One 60 minute consultation with RAMP registered Veterinary Physiotherapist Alice, followed by a report. The initial consultation will allow our Veterinary Physiotherapist to assess your dog's mobility and discuss an immediate action plan for you to begin implementing straight away. A bespoke treatment plan and advised number of sessions required will be provided, based on the initial consultation (treatment may need to be in consultation with your vet).                             

  2. For Behaviour cases an in depth assessment of your dog's mobility including any potential pain will be carried out, a report will then be sent to your veterinary practice. Our Veterinary Physiotherapist will then work with your veterinary practice on treatment plans if needed once a diagnosis has been confirmed. 
     

  3. Treatment will depend upon your dog's condition and needs and may include massage therapy, electrotherapy (including LASER, TENS & NMES) therapeutic Ultrasound and heat therapy
     

  4. Access to support from the Veterinary Physiotherapist via email/Whatsapp in between sessions

     
  5. Free membership to our exclusive Facebook community group for ongoing advice and support
