Canine Rehabilitation & Strengthening

Following an operation or injury, maintaining an ongoing condition such as arthritis, elbow/hip dysplasia, spondylosis or simply old age, your dog may need to strengthen specific muscle groups and restore full range of movement.  

  • Rehabilitation is an important part for your dog's recovery and the best results tend to occur if treatment starts in the early stages.  

  • Short term aim will be to reduce inflammation, swelling, any infection and improve joint range of motion.  

  • Long term will be to restore full range of movement and weight bearing, build stamina, strengthen the supporting tissues and muscles and slow any deterioration of the affect area/joint.  Most importantly will help your dog feel good again!

Having to lift up the paws helps mobility, weight bearing, strengthens limbs & improves range of movement.

Whilst recovering from injury usually 1:1 controlled exercise is recommended to restore fitness.  I can help!
