Canine Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for animals helps to restore and maintain mobility, function and performance. Our Physiotherapy consultations can be performed at the centre or in your home.

Canine Physiotherapy consultations include:

  • Discussing your pet’s medical history, current medications and current exercise routine
  • Observation – conformation/posture, muscle development and symmetry, behaviour and willingness to perform tasks
  • Gait analysis
  • Palpation assessment
  • Joint range of motion and mobilisation
  • Muscle strength/length testing
  • Massage and/or Dry Needling for pain relief

A specific Physiotherapy treatment plan will be composed according to your dog’s needs, helping your dog to achieve progressive rehabilitation goals and increase rate of recovery. Treatment plans are aimed at improving the function and rehabilitation of your pet as well as their happiness and quality of life.
