Veterinary Physiotherapy 

Veterinary Physiotherapy uses a combination of manual therapies, electrotherapies and exercises to reduce pain, stiffness, muscle spasms and swelling and increase strength, muscle mass, joint strength, cardiovascular fitness and comfort.

Our Veterinary Physiotherapists are highly qualified and registered with governing bodies, they take a full assessment of the patient and analyse their stance, movement, muscle mass and quality and joint health; from this they devise a plan tailored to your animal's specific needs and goals that is constantly updated as your pet becomes stronger.

They also work closely with our Hydrotherapists to decide on the best possible modality for your animal's condition.

The patient's well-being is at the centre of everything we do!

Stance Analyser


Our Companion Animal Stance Analyser is used within our Veterinary Physiotherapy initial consultations, it measures the weight bearing of each limb and outputs a colour-coded percentage, we then use this to target exercises and rehabilitation modalities to the issues seen. This is used throughout your animals journey with us so we can track their progress.

The stance analyser is also available as a separate appointment, if you are interested in how your dog is weight-bearing then contact us for more information.
