Canine Physiotherapy Services
SR Veterinary Physiotherapy provides a high-quality mobile assessment and treatment service and caters for a range of individuals, including working dogs, agility dogs, police dogs, sheep dogs and greyhounds, on a referral basis. These can benefit from regular treatment to maintain fitness, improve performance, reduce asymmetries, reduce the risk of injury and maximise performance potential.
The aim of physiotherapy is not only to improve performance and return dogs to their optimal functionbut to also reduce pain, re-educate gait, accelerate healing, restore mobility and aid in the prevention of injury.
From your family pet to a racing greyhound or an agility athlete, all dogs can suffer from a wide variety of conditions which may benefit from physiotherapy. Dogs, like us, suffer from different issues depending on their stage in life. Hence, each dog is an individual and so, working closely with yourself and your Veterinary Surgeon, under veterinary referral, a bespoke treatment programme can be formed to manage your pets’ condition alongside homework in the form of exercise prescription.
More information on techniques used can be found on our services page.
