Canine Physiotherapy


Dogs and other small animals can benefit greatly from physiotherapy, whether it is recovery from surgery or injury, or improving the performance of sporting or working dogs.

In addition, Three Shires Veterinary Physiotherapy believes in the philosophy of prevention is better than cure and therefore offer injury prevention and performance enhancement programmes for dogs of all ages.

We also offer maintenance programmes for elderly dogs who may suffer from arthritis. This includes weight control management, therapeutic exercises and non-pharmaceutical pain relief to keep them happy and mobile for as long as possible.

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in a range of canine conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Arthritis

  • Elbow and Hip Dysplasia

  • Cruciate Ligament Rupture

  • Fracture repair

  • Wound healing / repair

  • Neurological issues

  • Reduced performance

  • Altered behaviour

  • Pre- and post- operative rehabilitation

  • Stiffness while walking or rising from bed

  • Reluctant to go up stairs or jump

*Please make sure there is appropriate space in your home for the physiotherapy session to take place and that your dog is clean and dry for the session.
