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.
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.
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.
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.

Karina helps our clients and customers with their product inquiries. She gathers information, researches and explores products that can help pet patients and their families. She ensures customers find what they need, helps with measuring and fitment, and answers any product related questions. She also joins the team at the clinic to meet our pet friends and support the vet team.
Karina has been a volunteer at a cat shelter for several years and is responsible for taking care of sick cats. She has rescued her four cats from the cat shelter (not all at once!). Man Tau (in the picture) is the big sister! Karina is also a pet sitter who helps care for cats at home and walk dogs.
Karina wants to expand her knowledge and hands on experience with different kinds of animals, so she decided to make a huge leap from design and trade industry where she has worked for more than 10 years, and devote herself in our pet-related profession with the Paws in Motion team.Contact
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.
