Pets are an integral part of the family, and when their quality of life or ability to move around becomes compromised we know how important it is to get them back on their feet again.
Your pet’s mobility may be affected by a range of issues, such as recovery from orthopaedic or neurological surgery, or due to a degenerative condition such as osteoarthritis.
We know that rehabilitating a pet can be challenging, and we’re here to offer a helping hand. We are able to provide tailor-made rehabilitation plans that are specific your pet’s requirements, and offer advanced physiotherapy treatments, including K-laser therapy.
What is veterinary physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is used to treat disease, injury or deformity using a range of methods such as massage, electrotherapies, heat treatment and exercise. Physiotherapy aims to stimulate the body's natural healing process, reduce pain and restore mobility and function. If your pet has had surgery, physiotherapy can form an integral part of the rehabilitation process.
What conditions can be treated with physiotherapy?
- Post orthopaedic surgery cases
- Post neurological surgery cases
- Hip/Elbow dysplasia
- Cruciate disease
- Patella luxation
- Neurological conditions
- Soft tissue injuries (sprains and strains)
- Nerve damage
- Spinal pain
- Muscle atrophy.
Will my pet insurance cover physiotherapy treatment?
Physiotherapy is categorised as a complementary therapy and should be covered by most insurance companies. If you are unsure, please check with your insurance provider about whether your individual policy is covered for physiotherapy.
Can I stay with my pet during physiotherapy treatment?
Absolutely. Your pet’s successful rehabilitation relies on your hard work and commitment to their rehabilitation programme. We like to involve owners as much as possible during sessions, and you will have various exercises demonstrated to you to perform at home.
