Physiotherapy can help animals with a variety of conditions. Animals that have recently had orthopaedic surgery or neurosurgery can benefit greatly from physiotherapy treatment. It can help with keeping older pets comfortable and mobile and also aid conditioning for more active, sporting dogs.
My pet hasn’t had surgery; can they still have physiotherapy?
Absolutely! Physiotherapy is great for post-operative conditions, osteoarthritis, sports conditioning, preventative therapy and generally keeping your pet comfortable and happy.
How long do appointments last?
Initial appointments range from 60-90 minutes, depending on your pet and their condition. Initial appointments are longer to allow your pet to get used to their new surroundings and their new therapist. Follow up sessions can range from 30-60 minutes. Appointments may involve a combination of laser therapy, massage therapy and therapeutic exercises.
How many appointments will my pet need?
This will completely depend on your pet and their condition. Your therapist will discuss a treatment plan for your pet, and develop a home exercise plan for you and your pet. They will also discuss relevant treatment goals and timeframes with you. Sticking to your pet’s rehabilitation plan will help with speeding up their recovery or progress!
