What is involved in pet physiotherapy?

Pet physiotherapy or rehabilitation is the use of therapeutic exercises combined with additional modalities such as hydrotherapy, ultrasound, cryotherapy, neuromuscular electrical stimulation and low level laser therapy and laser acupuncture to improve the recovery of pets with both acute and chronic conditions.

How will pets you refer to FVP benefit from a physiotherapy program?

We aim to restore, maintain and promote optimal function and mobility; enhance recovery postoperatively; alleviate pain; improve circulation, coordination and range of motion; provide confidence and comfort in geriatric patients. Pets of all ages, sizes and breeds can benefit from animal rehabilitation. Pets suffering from chronic pain, arthritis, obesity or muscle weakness can experience an enhanced quality of life as a result of physiotherapy.
