Canine Therapy for Our Furry Friends

HOW WILL HYDROTHERAPY HELP MY DOG?

Hydrotherapy in conjunction with veterinary treatment can significantly improve the quality and rate of healing following surgery or traumatic injury. In these cases the appropriate use of hydrotherapy can help with rehabilitation and increase the chance of a successful return to full fitness. Hydrotherapy is also beneficial in young growing dogs diagnosed with developmental conditions.

Hydrotherapy has specific therapeutic effects on body tissues

• Relief of pain, swelling & stiffness

• Muscle strengthening and maintenance.

• Alleviating muscle spasm.

• Increased range of motion in joints

• Improved circulation

• Cardiovascular fitness (heart & lungs)

• Increased tissue healing

• Increased speed of recovery

• Gait modification

• Increased proprioception


WHY CHOOSE CANINE MASSAGE TO HELP MY DOG

Canine Massage also known as Canine Myotherapy, is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy, using specific techniques by a qualified therapist. This holistic approach supports and promotes healing, muscle balance, pain-relief and well-being for a dog with muscular issues. Maintenance massage can be helpful to keep a healthy and happy dog, detect potential injuries and prevent further injury.

I treat soft tissue and orthopaedic conditions to improve muscle function. When muscles are inhibited or restricted, they begin to shorten, this compromises muscle function and results in pain. A dog will change and adapt how they move and behave, this is what we notice as lameness, stiffness and behavioural changes.
