Rehabilitation is an emerging and fast growing sector of the veterinary industry. At Synergy Small Animal Rehabilitation we provide physiotherapy, which includes several different therapies like massage and TENS as well as both underwater treadmill and pool hydrotherapy. These services are available for dogs and cats.

Jo and Matt’s combined experience gives the ideal balance when it comes to making a full recovery from injury/surgery, as well as helping older patients move more comfortably.

The conditions that rehabilitation can help with include:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Stiffness

  • Lameness

  • Amputee

  • Tendon or ligament injuries

  • Fractures

  • Road traffic accident

  • Inflammation, swelling and pain

  • Neurological conditions - nerve damage, DM, disc protrusions, ANNPE, FCE, etc.

  • Orthopaedic conditions - cruciate disease, hip or elbow dysplasia, etc.

  • Obesity

  • Poor posture

  • Muscle imbalances

  • Poor muscle development

  • Poor cardiorespiratory function

  • Reduction in usual performance

  • Poor fitness

In addition to this both physiotherapy and hydrotherapy can be used to maintain and improve fitness levels in the sporting or working dog such as agility or police dogs.

We also offer puppy and litter evaluations with our veterinary physiotherapist and swimming lessons for dogs with our hydrotherapist.
