What is Physiotherapy?

When water therapy is not an option for your dog, we may recommend physiotherapy. We will also recommend physiotherapy as a treatment to work alongside water therapy. Physiotherapy for dogs is the treatment of disease, injury or deformity by physical methods. These physical methods include massage, heat/cold therapy and specific exercises. We use physiotherapy as a way to restore movement and function for your dog and also reduce the risk of injury or illness in the future.

Carlie has been a great help to both my boys Rogue has been suffering with age related arthritis and Snoop has neurological problems that affect his balance. The treatment has taken place at our home where the boys are comfortable and calm and Carlie has been very understanding with both our dogs throughout the session.

I recently use Carlie on a puppy classed as a “swimmer” when I called her in at four weeks he couldn’t walk she put in place a regime of massage and exercise and was very diligent and professional in her sessions with him resulting in a very happy normal puppy I would have no hesitation in recommending Vier animal physiotherapy

Marshall suffered a ligament injury causing him to need a toe amputation he had sessions with Carlie post op. Carlie was great with Marshall making sure he was relax throughout his treatment sessions he was much better following each treatment and he’s using his leg more each time Carlie made Marshalls recovery time a lot shorter and I would highly recommend her for any canine physio needs
