Millie is a fully qualified, fully insured member of IRVAP who works under the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966). This states that veterinary consent must be obtained prior to treating any animal. A phone call to your vet is usually sufficient, which is then followed by a consent form that is needed prior to treatment.
Veterinary physiotherapy can help animals in all stages of life, benefiting companion pets and animal athletes alike. Although physiotherapy can help to improve fitness and performance in the athlete, it can also be used to improve general fitness and well-being in non-competing animals who just want to enjoy life whether it be rolling in a field or chasing squirrels in the park!
As with humans, physiotherapy can help to assist in post-surgery rehabilitation, reducing pain and restoring normal functions as soon as possible. In cases where surgery is not an option, physiotherapy may be used to manage conditions conservatively by reducing pain and working on strengthening different areas to provide support to the affected structures.
Some neurological conditions can also be helped with suitable physiotherapy treatment plans, often improving the animal’s quality of life. Senior animals can also benefit from pain relief and general loosening of tight muscles, leading to a better quality of life in those later years when conditions such as arthritis can become more common.
