Dogs - Information

Veterinary physiotherapy can benefit a range of conditions in our canine friends. Whether it is recovery following a surgery or simply helping your faithful companion be more comfortable as they age, there are plenty of ways in which a vet physio can support you. Conditions that may benefit include (but are not limited to!):

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)

  • Cranial cruciate ligament (rupture) – post operatively or conservative management

  • Luxating patella

  • Tendon injuries

  • Hip dysplasia

  • Elbow dysplasia

  • Fractures

  • Intervertebral disc disease (IVDD)

Veterinary physiotherapy isn’t exclusively for dogs with injuries or illnesses – I can build a tailored performance development programme for sporting or working dogs to improve their fitness and develop them further.

I offer a mobile service to assess and treat dogs in the comfort of their own surroundings, reducing any potential stress of travelling or new environments. By treating your dog at home it also means we can discuss any home adaptations that might be necessary to help your dog's condition, such as covering up slippery flooring with rugs to prevent falls.

From experiences with my own dog, I know that some dogs aren’t keen on strangers, particularly rescues. I can’t give advice or treatment without seeing your dog, but if you’re worried about how they may react, please let me know and we can discuss an approach that works for you and your dog’s individuality. I am happy to work alongside any animal behaviourists you may have too.
