Once your treatment plan has started your appointment will be one of two sessions, including a variety of physiotherapy and hydrotherapy treatments.
These last approx 45 mins and involves ongoing assessment and a prescribed treatment plan from your physiotherapist. Generally we combine physiotherapy and hydrotherapy techniques however this will ultimately depends on the animal and its needs and appropriateness for different techniques.

Once your pet has achieved the initial goals set and requires less input from our physiotherapists, they may be moved onto a maintenance appointment. These sessions last approximately 30 mins. These aim to maintain the achievement made, i.e maintaining muscle bulk, range of movement and keep on top of ongoing conditions such as osteoarthritis. Your physiotherapist will advise as to when you are ready to progress onto these appointments.
