Physiotherapy for older dogs

 

Animal Physiotherapists are experts in assessment of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. They are experienced in assessing movement such as gait and functional activities, assessing weakness in muscles, tightness or soreness in muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. They then develop a treatment program that is right for your older dog and you to regain and maintain strength and fitness. 

 

I have worked with Melbourne based canine physiotherapist and director of Dogs In Motion, Michelle Monk for a number of years and cannot recommend her services and care highly enough. For inquiries and bookings please see:
