How can physio help?

Physiotherapy can offer help with many physical problems your dog may be suffering with.

After gaining consent from your vet, I will come and visit you at home and carry out a thorough assessment of your dog. This will include taking a detailed history from you, looking at how your dog walks and moves, rests and interacts, and finishing with a hands on assessment for pain, joint range and soft tissue problems.  After the assessment I will discuss what I have found and how I would like to treat this. The treatment plan will be agreed with you, and your dog will receive their first session of treatment. The need for ongoing treatments will be planned with you for each individual, depending on need.

Carol came to our home and did a thorough assessment of Eric, explained the problem and set us up with some exercises to do. Thank you for your professional and friendly approach – he is doing really well!
