At Paws in Motion we do not limit the benefits of rehabilitation to patients recovering from injuries or illness.
Massage therapy, heat therapy, acu-laser and electromagnetic field therapy are very therapeutic, especially for our geriatric pets that need that extra care as they age gracefully.
Joint pain, weight gain, soreness, loss of flexibility, strength and mobility raise extra challenges that affect pet activity and enjoyment of life.
In addition to being indicated for chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, laser and massage therapy have energising benefits that help to maintain quality of life in aging cats, dogs and rabbits.
A gentle fitness exercise programme and nutritional advice, including advice on supplements, can help the older pet to achieve or maintain an appropriate weight for their condition and stage of life, to promote their fitness and well-being.
If needed, we can also guide you in assessing and monitoring your pet’s quality of life.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease, which means that it gets progressively worse. How advanced is osteoarthritis in your dog, cat or rabbit? Your pet’s stage of arthritis will determine the steps you can take to alleviate their pain.
Laser-puncture or Acu-laser synergistically blends traditional acupuncture with the new technology of laser therapy, resulting in fast, efficient and highly effective treatments.
