Cases are only seen on veterinary referral or with prior veterinary permission.
Initial consultations take around an hour to an hour and a half, with follow-ups of
45 minutes to an hour.
Consultations begin by discussing the dog's medical history as well as other background information. This is followed by a visual examination of the dog both when moving and standing still. Next is a hands-on examination to assess the state of the muscles and joints.
The treatment given is individual to each patient, and may include any of the following: massage, stretches, passive and active range of movement exercises, pulsed electro-magnetic field therapy, phototherapy, hydrotherapy and cryotherapy.
In most cases owners will be advised as to how to continue with their pet's therapy at home, often with a combination of massage and specific exercises, such as sit-to-stand exercises or walking in figures of 8.
You will receive a written report at the end of each consultation, a copy of which is sent to your vet.
