Sarah Price Physiotherapy

Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapy, specialising in the treatment of horses, dogs and riders





Here at Aqua Dogs we work closely with Sarah Price Physiotherapy, offering you the best rehabilitation treatment possible for your dog.

In some cases it is necessary for dogs to receive a combined treatment of both Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy. This can be for a number of reasons, but some common situations are;

  • Where muscle wastage is so great treatment is required everyday.  Realistically coming for hydrotherpay treatment everyday isn't practical. Your dog will be assessed and you will be given things that you can do at home everyday to help regain their lost muscle bulk.
  • With hydrotherpay treatment the dog will be using all four legs. If one leg needs particular attention more than the others physiotherpay treatment can be used to target specific muscle groups only. Again you can be given exercises to do at home.
  • A lot of canine conditions will result in weakness in the back end. What happens with these conditions is that the dog over compensates with it's front end to enable it to get around which often results in the front limbs and shoulders becoming sore. Pressure point work on these sore areas will releive the tension and pain.

Physiotherapy treatment may benefit your dog if it suffers from any of the following;

  • Hip/elbow dysplasia
  • Spinal stiffness/soreness or intervertebral disc disease
  • Age related joint stiffness and decreasing mobility/function
  • Lameness
  • Wounds
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rehabilitiation following orthopaedic surgery
  • Neurological conditions
  • Uncharacteristic changes in behaviour
  • Trauma and soft tissue injuries to tendon, ligament and muscle
  • Weight or inactivity/obesity problems
