Canine Physiotherapy

Canine Physiotherapy or Animal physiotherapy in general is a developing profession and can provide a high level of care and follow up treatment for animals in the same way as it does for human patients.

Feline Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for small animals is increasingly in demand with pet owners seeking out treatments where they can see positive, progressive results delivered by highly trained professionals and be involved in the care process themselves.

Equine Physiotherapy

Equine Physiotherapy provides various treatments and rehabilitation techniques which are used with the aim to restore an injured tissue back to full function and strength

Why Use A Chartered Physiotherapist?

To become a chartered physiotherapist specialising in veterinary physiotherapy you must have completed your BSc Hons in physiotherapy and be registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC). This means the professional you are dealing with has to ensure they keep their qualifications up to date and comply to set standards. To join the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal therapy (ACPAT). The individual must be a chartered physio who has completed and approved an accredited ACPAT course. It is crucial that you check the qualifications of any therapist treating your animal. We are required by the law to gain consent of the veterinary surgeon prior to treating your animal.

Why Physiotherapy?

  • Animal Physiotherapy whether for dogs, cats or horses helps to restore movement and function when an animal is affected by injury, illness or disability.
  • At the core is the owners involvement in their animal’s care, through education, awareness and participation in their treatment.
