Just like humans, injuries can impact a dog’s ability to have an active and healthy lifestyles they’re used to, but it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right canine physiotherapy, your injured dog can get back to become happy and active again!


A variety of soft tissue techniques such as massage, stretches, and hydrotherapy are incorporated into animal physiotherapy treatments as appropriate. Exercise rehabilitation is also a very important part of animal physiotherapy.

Hydrotherapy for your dog

The buoyancy water provides means there is reduced pressure and weight going through the joints, which allows patients to move more freely with reduced pain.  This translates to a more ideal gait pattern, exercising the correct muscles which need to be built up and strengthened.  A bit like going to the gym where we may lift weight to help build muscle, the water creates resistance which builds up the animal's muscle mass. As well as helping to build muscle, hydrotherapy is great for a cardiac workout - working against the water is hard work and patients' fitness builds up over each session.

What conditions benefit from physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy can ease the pain of dogs with a range of problems including back pain, arthritis, sprains, strains, as well as post-operative rehabilitation.

Physiotherapy may need to be done for weeks or months following an injury to maximize recovery. Keep in mind that working your pet harder will not help your pet recover faster, so please be patient. Speak to your vet on the best physiotherapy plan for your pet.
