Canine Physiotherapy

Whether your canine friend is an agility collie or a 15 year old arthritic Labrador, physiotherapy can help your beloved pet. Each animal is treated as an individual and Gemma ensures their requirements are met to enable them to have a functional quality of life

It is very often possible to detect a problem before it affects an animal’s mobility. This can prove extremely beneficial not only in your domesticated pets but also in working dogs, agility dogs and racing greyhounds which are something Gemma specialises in. This is why physiotherapy is such an important maintenance tool for animals. It can save a lot of lay off time and pain for the animal in the long run.
