Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a vital component in the treatment of a variety of conditions and the goals differ for each patient. Rehabilitation can aid in pain management and also reduce recovery time following a procedure.  The Pet Specialists provide tailored rehabilitation and acupuncture programmes both during a stay in hospital and also following discharge.

Working alongside your local vet, our rehabilitation services can provide your pet with the ultimate care. Involving a rehabilitation therapist, alongside your pet’s specialist surgeon, can facilitate an expediated post operative recovery from routine orthopaedics to more complex surgeries, while continuing to collaborate with the surgeon as recovery progresses. We can provide the tools and knowledge to get you and your companion back to doing more of what you love together.
