At Paws in Motion, our veterinary physiotherapy treatment programmes are designed by our experienced veterinarian and certified canine rehabilitation therapist, Dr Jane McNae, and aim to improve the rehabilitation process, encouraging a more rapid return to mobility and enjoyment of life.
Paws in Motion offers a mobile home visit service for Hong Kong clients.
A home visit is especially important for pets who get stressed or nervous outside of their normal environment.
Avoiding unnecessary travel can benefit your pet, especially when their mobility is impaired after injury, surgery or with old age.
We help you implement therapeutic exercise and discuss any recommended modifications to the home environment.
Home visits allow for individual adaptations in the programme design, to suit both you and your pet’s needs.
We are also able to treat your pet at your regular veterinary practice, especially if your pet is an inpatient after surgery. This depends on your veterinary practice and can be discussed.
Physiotherapy requires a skilled and qualified technician to apply appropriate techniques and clinical reasoning to manage pain and restore movement in your pet.
Physiotherapy for pets must be overseen by a Hong Kong registered veterinary surgeon to ensure the correct and safe treatments are administered appropriately to ensure rehabilitation goals are met.
At Paws in Motion, our veterinary physiotherapy treatment programmes are designed by our experienced veterinarian and certified canine rehabilitation therapist, Dr Jane McNae, and aim to speed up the healing process, encouraging a more rapid return to mobility and enjoy life again.

It is important to make sure we have the correct diagnosis before treating your pet. Your family veterinarian will perform all the necessary diagnostic tests, X-rays or imaging and ensure that any required medical or surgical treatment is given. We liaise directly with your vet to obtain this information and to ensure any specific requirements are met and your pet receives continuity of care.
If your pet is not under current veterinary care, that’s OK! Our veterinary surgeon and rehabilitation therapist, Dr Jane McNae, is happy to take on new patients and assess their needs. You are welcome to call, or better still, complete our pet registration form to provide some basic information about your pet so we can contact you to discuss recommendations and options.Contact
