CANINE ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT

From your beloved family pet to the elite working dog, musculoskeletal and orthopaedic problems can arise. It is essential to aid a dog's recovery and return them to previous exercise and enjoyment levels.

Common conditions treated:

  • Soft tissue injuries to tendon, ligament and muscle

  • Hip/elbow dysplasia

  • Rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery

  • Back pain

  • Lameness

  • Age related osteoarthritis

  • Neurological conditions

  • Rehabilitation following spinal surgery

  • Wound healing and scar tissue

The Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966) stipulates that animals can only be treated by a Veterinary Surgeon or someone authorised by a Veterinary Surgeon. It is therefore a legal requirement that I obtain verbal or written Veterinary consent prior to your animal's first physiotherapy appointment.
