There are a variety of reasons why a dog may require canine physiotherapy. Whether it is to relieve pain and stiffness in your old family pet or improve the performance of your working dog or competition dog we can help.
To keep your dog at top fitness levels and performing at their best, regular canine physiotherapy is advised.
Allowing your working dog to undergo a canine physiotherapy assessment and treatment every six months will enable our practitioner to keep your dog in top condition, maintaining a healthy body while limiting a chance of any problems throughout their busy season.
Many competition dogs work very hard and often their body is put under a lot of strain to compete in the intense environment they love.
Having your competition dog assessed and treated by our practitioner will ensure your dog is happy, healthy and will continue at peak performance for many years.
Whether your family pet has recently had a surgical procedure, requires rehabilitation or has recently slowed down due to joint stiffness or arthritic pain we can help.
If you have an old companion that is starting to struggle to get up and down the stairs, or on to the sofa, we have a range of techniques that offer natural pain relief and make an incredible difference to the mobility of your dog.
If your dog struggles with medication and you are looking for an alternative solution please feel free to contact us.
Having previously worked within a leading veterinary chain providing canine physiotherapy, our practitioner has a huge amount of experience in dog physiotherapy, rehabilitation of surgical procedures, spinal conditions, orthopaedic conditions, fractures and much more.
Rehabilitation treatments include the use of electrotherapy. This is a non-invasive technique to promote a faster healing time and improved healing long term.
Although you can receive referral from your vet for physiotherapy, you can also come to us directly. Simply give us a call and we discuss your requirements, make the booking and that is your part done. We then contact your vet (this is now in accordance to veterinary law) receive a full history and permission to treat your animal.
Most insurance cover includes up to 10 sessions of alternative therapy, therefore physiotherapy sessions can be claimed for.
Each session must be paid for on the day of treatment and full receipts will be provided to be submitted to the insurance company to claim the cost of the treatment back. If canine physiotherapy is being used following injury/ illness or an ongoing procedure many insurance companies will cover the costs.
There is absolutely nothing throughout the treatment that wil hurt or cause your pet any pain. Most dogs relax into the treatment and enjoy the attention. They can feel lethargic for twenty four hours after treatment, however there are no other side effects.
My dog was in pain, as a result he was overweight and very depressed. We had five long years of medicating with antiflamatories and cutting walks down.
Emma came, assessed and treated and even gave us an exercise plan. Two months later (3 treatments) and I have a happy dog, who is 3kg lighter, no longer has any medication and walks and plays like a normal dog.
Emma has been treating my Giant Schnauzer for various chronic back conditions. He is not usually one for people touching him, but he loves Emma and rarely stays awake throughout the treatment.
Emma is very professional, attentive and caring and I would highly recommend her services.
Emma has treated my horses with great success, so I recently called upon her expertise to assist my aging dog who was starting to show mobility problems. The day after his treatment there was a remarkable difference. He walked out with a jaunty pace and a wag in his tail. Thank you Emma!
