“We treat every patient with the utmost care and compassion”
Every dog is unique; therefore, we work to combine continuous assessments with our treatments to ensure that every patient receives a customised treatment plan. By combining both physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, we can maximise your pet’s rehabilitation.
Treatments may include
Manual techniques for joints and soft tissues
Proprioceptive (balance) exercises
Underwater treadmill therapy (hydrotherapy)
What to Expect
Initial Consultation (1-1.5hour)
The initial consultation may take 1- 1.5 hours depending on complexity and stage of the problem. During the session, our professionally qualified Veterinary Physiotherapist will take detailed history and background information. We will then perform a comprehensive assessment of your pets mobility, neurological status, passive range of movement as well as palpating relevant soft tissue and joints to find areas of pain and tightness before commencing appropriate treatment.
We will also support you with specialist advice as well as providing a comprehensive aftercare and homecare management programme adapted to suit both the owner and dog.
Follow-Up Appointments (45-60 minutes)
On-going treatment sessions are provided, combining physiotherapy and hydrotherapy techniques depending on your dog’s needs. We will also provide you with an aftercare and homecare programme.

We firmly believe in effective prevention and early intervention. Therefore, if you have a competition or working dog, we recommend regular maintenance checks. This can help to identify minor tweaks and strains that may lead to further problems and decreases in performance. By identifying and treating these early, we can prevent bigger problems developing and help to enhance sporting performance.
