Physiotherapy - FAQs
What does the assessment involve?
Subjective discussion - You know your pet better than anyone, so this discussion is essential to determine any changes in your pet's behaviour and wellbeing.
Gait Analysis - Using our large walkway, we use slow motion videography to analyse your pet's gait.
Functional Activities - Observing how your pet stands, transitions and manages functional tasks such as stairs, can show us how your pet may be compensating.
Head-to-Toe Assessment - Hands-on palpation helps to identify palpable changes to joints, muscles and other soft tissue.
Joint Range of Motion - Assessing the movement of your pets joints can help identify signs of injury, disease or hypermobility.
Neurological Exam & Special Tests - In some cases, additional tests may be performed.
Treatment - All appropriate treatment options will be discussed.
Home Exercise Programme - As an essential part of rehabilitation, specifically prescribed exercises that you can practice with your pet at home will be demonstrated and practiced.
Questions - You will have opportunity to ask any questions you have.
Do I need to bring anything?
You may want to bring:
A selection of treats from low-reward to high-reward treats or toys (but we have plenty if you forget!)
If your dog is particularly nervous in new environments, then please feel free to bring a filled kong or likit mat to help them settle
