Canine

Whether your canine is a family pet, working dog, racing greyhound or fly ball champion, they can all benefit from Physiotherapy. This could be following surgery, a competition injury, traffic accident or due to ageing and a lack of fitness. Physiotherapy can address these issues to manage your dog's health and happiness. Behaviour can be a good indicator of pain so new aggressive or withdrawn behaviours can be signs of discomfort.
