You walk on two legs, but your companion walks on four. They walk, run, and bend their legs. Cats also use their legs to climb trees (even birds and squirrels know this!)
Our pet’s legs are always in use. Complementary care, such as animal physiotherapy, can be of great help when there is an injury, surgery, or when signs of aging start to appear.
Why go for complementary care?
The foundation of physiotherapy and other complementary care is to maintain and expand the widest range of movement in animals, as well as rejuvenate their capacity to function. Such an approach is not just curative, it is also preventive.
Treatments can improve recovery after a surgery and enhance strength, agility, and mobility. Minimizing the growth of tissue around scars and enhancing the elasticity of the skin allows a wider range of motion. Nevertheless, you should know that even if your dog is a tough one complementary care such as laser therapy, and some specific manipulations, can help control pain and reduce swelling after surgery.
After a few weeks of treatment you will be delighted to see that your companion is back at his optimal weight and muscle strength. For any inquiry regarding physical rehabilitation and other complementary care, feel free to contact your veterinary team.
