Canine physiotherapy and rehabilitation improve movement, restore muscular function, speed up recovery, and reduce risks of injury to your dog.

Physiotherapy sessions typically last 45 minutes to an hour and can include:

  • Functional assessment: including quantitative measurements
  • Manual therapy: specific hands-on techniques to isolate and treat soft tissue and joint structures
  • Electrotherapy: therapeutic equipment such as LASER, Ultrasound, Electrical Stimulation or Pulse Electromagnetic Field
  • Therapeutic exercise program

The physiotherapist will develop a program that you can follow at home, so you are pro-actively involved in your dog’s recovery.

Cost from £45 per session

“Agnès has been helping to keep my dogs in great shape for competing at top level in agility for the past 3 years. Her treatments played a huge part in us winning 1st place at this year’s Agility  World Championships. The program Agnès has developed for my dogs combining physiotherapy, massage and strengthening exercises is fantastic. I would strongly recommend her. ”

“From our very first visit to Agnès for physiotherapy, her skill and expertise were evident. Agnès’ knowledge, professionalism and passion are above any we have encountered in the many therapists we have seen to date. We feel confident and at ease knowing our dog is in experienced hands with Agnès, who seems to care for our dog as if she were her own.”

“Our dog had an accident where she fell 60 feet and sustained multiple severe injuries. The difference in Darcy after we started physiotherapy and massage with Agnès has been remarkable. Her progress has even amazed the vets who have saved her life and three years on Darcy still benefits greatly from her treatments.”

“Agnès took wonderful care of our Border Collie, Isla, for over 4 years. Isla’s treatment made a huge difference to her and her many joint issues, she was so much livelier after her fortnightly sessions with Agnès. Her treatment undoubtedly improved the quality of life of an older collie who didn’t want to slow down!

Agnès was so knowledgeable – she always took time to explain what she was doing and why. And was always so patient with Isla. I would highly recommend Agnès for massage and physiotherapy.”
