What is veterinary physiotherapy?

Veterinary physiotherapy is an amazing addition to veterinary medicine as it allows us to help animals be their best self, regardless of species, breed, sex or age. Not only can it aid in healing and pain relief for a wide variety of issues, it can also be an effective tool in preventative medicine. Veterinary physiotherapy offers an additional toolkit to add to any animals veterinary care.

Why Choose Veterinary Physiotherapy 

Veterinary physiotherapy offers one-to-one tailored treatment for your animal based on their breed, age, sex, discipline and personality. Not only can veterinary physiotherapy help your animals during appointments, but we can also provide you with so many little additions to add in to daily life at home which will all add up to make a huge difference. So many animals develop aches and pains through compensations and little injuries just like us humans do. It is really important that we treat these little things before they turn into something bigger, like an injury or an ailment that requires surgery. While healing and pain relief are a massive part of veterinary physiotherapy, they are not the only focus. Keeping our pets as healthy and pain free as we can, through maintenance and preventative therapy, will give them the opportunity to live a healthy and happy life for as long as possible!

How do I know if my animal needs veterinary physiotherapy?

It is well known that animals can be very good at hiding pain. As they cannot tell us if or where they are hurting, here's a few key things to look out for that might occur as signs of pain or discomfort:

  • Excessive licking, chewing or panting

  • Change in appetite

  • Change in behaviour; avoidance, anxiety, aggression (towards people or other animals)

  • Reluctance to exercise

  • Change in level of vocalisation

Sometimes the changes in personality or behaviour may only be slight, however this is our pets only way of telling us something is wrong or has changed.

If you are unsure if your pets change in behaviour is related to pain or discomfort just get in touch!
