Physiotherapy is now widely recognised by Veterinarians as being an effective treatment for any animal before and after surgery, after injury, and to improve general health and well-being.
Your animal may benefit from physiotherapy if they have;
Had recent surgery
Had an injury or accident
Lost ability or finding it difficult to do things they were previously able to do
Changed their behaviour without reason
Become stiff or slow
I offer a flexible, mobile service, meaning your animal can reap the benefits of physiotherapy in the comfort of their own home and will be more relaxed and so the session will be more beneficial.
I can provide pre-operative Physiotherapy, to strengthen tissues to aid quicker recovery. Post-operative/ post-injury physiotherapy to provide pain relief, rebuild strength, regain mobility and correct gait abnormalities.
Neurological patients will also benefit from physiotherapy. Providing support for the muscles and joints which the patient is not capable of moving and using stimulus to improve proprioception.
Many farm animals can also greatly benefit from physiotherapy. For example, pain after difficulty calving or lambing or physiotherapy to assist with downer cows.
At Foxwood Veterinary Physiotherapy, we strive to help all animals from horses and dogs to farm animals and small furries! Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss your pets needs.
