Tailored rehabilitation plan according to your dog's condition.
Rehabilitation helps your pet recover from injury, illness, or disease. Prior to commencing a rehabilitation plan you must first consult with your veterinarian for any medical concerns and diagnosis of your dog's condition.
We will provide a series of treatment options for many different conditions using multiple modalities including: hydrotherapy, massage, RockTape functional support, use of our specialised canine gym equipment and prescribed home exercises.
Getting back into top shape will be hard work and requires a lot of commitment from both for you and your dog. With dedication and the right home exercise plan and guidance we will help your dog improve their function, condition and quality of life.
The safety and wellbeing of the dog is of the highest importance. Before treatment can commence, we will need to assess various factors to ensure there are no contraindications to treatment. As we are not veterinarians, we cannot diagnose conditions, perform surgery or prescribe medications. We will however work alongside your veterinarian, to ensure we provide the right treatment for your dog’s condition.
As part of our assessment prior to starting therapy we will require your dog's full health history and veterinary records, including imagery (x-rays, CT scans, etc.), details of medications and any other supporting documents you can provide.
This will enable us to develop the safest and most effective treatment plan using therapies which complement their veterinary care to help improve your dog's condition.
We will provide advice on best practice for environment and exercise according to your dog’s condition following treatment, with ongoing support as required.
