The Benefits of Physiotherapy for Pets
Physiotherapy is an integral part of the healing process for many muscle and bone injuries, as well as, for chronic conditions such as arthritis. The goal of physiotherapy is to build muscle mass in order to stabilize and protect joints. See the videos on this page to help you with the exercises recommended by our veterinarians.
Before any physiotherapy session, the muscles need to be warmed up as cold muscles and joints do not move very well. To warm up your pets muscles, take them for a 3-4 minute walk, massage their muscles or apply heat. Please remember to keep sessions short and to stop and consult your vet if your pet seems uncomfortable. Using lots of praise and the occasional treat is an integral part of a successful physiotherapy program. Please remember to use small amounts of a low calorie treat to prevent weight gain.
