Your dog is not just another patient, they are our patient

Our dog physiotherapy services provides bespoke injury rehabilitation with the option of home based or clinic appointments in Southampton. We see a variety of patients from dogs living with chronic comorbidities, post operative patients and sports conditioning.

You will be seen by an ACPAT animal physiotherapist meaning your dog will receive the highest standard of treatment. The service includes a gait examination and a thorough neuromusculoskeletal examination to ascertain potential sources of pain, including bony, soft tissue and neural structures.

We also provide  20minute online video assessments for £15 which can provide clarity on your dogs musculoskeletal health. This service provides the opportunity to ask any questions you have regarding injury management or identification. It also provides the chance for gait assessments and movement anaylsis to identify strengths and weaknesses.

Canine FAQs 

What is canine physiotherapy?
Most people have either had physiotherapy themselves or know someone who has had it. Canine physiotherapy follows the exact same principles and treatments. Evolution has meant we are all designed to move, however after illness, surgery, injury or disability this can be difficult. We can help restore movement whilst reducing pain, improving strength and ultimately independence.

How long will physiotherapy take?
This is a million-dollar question and difficult to answer, purely because every case is different and so is the reason for physiotherapy. We will answer this however after an initial appointment. We do tailor our rehabilitation plans to you, for example if you would prefer to space appointments, we will ensure you feel equipped with our rehabilitation plans to do this at home. We can also provide packages which you might find more suitable.
Can my insurance cover physiotherapy treatment?
