We offer pet physiotherapy, nutrition and fitness services
We offer pet physiotherapy services, based on our own veterinary model: PAWS Pawprint of physiotherapy care for pets.
The PAWS Pawprint brings Place, Activity and Well-being together with veterinary Support to help paw-parents navigate available options and to take easy steps that can improve the health, comfort and quality of life for their pets, promote healing and recovery after injury or surgery.
An integrated approach means combining therapies, techniques, and treatments. The PAWS Pawprint approach allows us to consider all the physical, emotional, psychological, social, and environmental factors which interplay to give the best physiotherapy care to each individual pet.
Neurological problems stem from the pet’s nervous system: the brain, spinal cord and nerves, and can lead to unsteady walking or even paralysis of the legs.
Rehabilitation is aimed at using techniques and equipment that help the nerves regenerate by utilising their ability to reorganise and adapt, known as neuroplasticity.More about Brain and Spine Injuries
Joint and bone (orthopaedic) problems can result from sudden trauma or injury, or they can be more chronic and degenerative in nature.
Physiotherapy improves patient comfort and recovery after injury, helping them to return to their active lifestyle faster.More about Joints, Bones and Post-Surgery
Strains occur when the tendons that link muscles to bones are injured, whereas sprains are injuries to the ligaments that connect the bones together.
We commonly treat dogs, cats and rabbits suffering from strains and sprains. The initial phase of rehabilitation treatment is to manage pain and slowly re-establish normal movement to the affected area.More about Muscle Strains and Sprains
Senior pets develop age-related problems such as osteoarthritis and joint pain, weight gain, stiffness, soreness, limping, loss of flexibility, strength and mobility.
Aging gracefully and maintaining quality of life are vital in caring for senior and geriatric pets. Massage therapy, heat therapy, therapeutic laser and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy are very therapeutic, reducing soreness and stiffness.More about Senior and Arthritic Pets

Fitness and conditioning is key in growing puppies, however, it is important not to overload their developing joints and open growth plates, causing injury.
Physiotherapy in puppies aims to identify early issues or developmental conditions and focus efforts on appropriate exercises or levels of activity.More about Puppy Joint Health
