  • Phototherapy
  • An at home personalised exercise regime

Benefits of Physiotherapy for Pets

With continually advancing veterinary medicine and surgical techniques, pets are now living longer and leading healthier lives. Aftercare and rehabilitation is more important now than ever which is where physiotherapy can play an essential role.

If your pet has recently undergone surgery, then physiotherapy may be a great option to help the recovery process. We’d always recommend the sooner the better with any kind of physiotherapy for the best results, this may even include a consultation pre-op to help your pet get familiar with our nurse and the surroundings.

All Physiotherapy cases must have a veterinary referral before treatment.

If you’re committed to giving your pet the best quality of life, then Healthy Pets is here to help. For more information on our services, email or give us a call on 01383 734 380.
