IMG_1215 2.HEIC

We offer mobile services to allow your dog to be treated at home where they may feel more comfortable. Equally clinic visits are offered which may be quieter and more appropriate for your animal. Each appointment will start with an assessment, followed by physiotherapeutic treatment. A home exercise plan will be given to you to complete between physiotherapy sessions to optimise beneficial effects. Each element will be demonstrated to you to ensure you are confident with the exercise. Dependent on the case, time between appointments may vary from weekly, fortnightly or monthly which will be determined during the first visit
