It is not just dogs and horses that benefit from physiotherapy. Cats can also be helped by receiving physiotherapy treatment. Cats are really good at keeping themselves in good condition, but age and injuries can often affect their body and muscle strength. Physiotherapy after injury can aid their recovery to get them back to their playful selves as soon as possible. Even some healthy cats enjoy the occasional massage to improve relaxation and muscle tone.
Some of the signs that your cat may need physiotherapy are:
Sudden reluctance to jump up onto surfaces
Lack of coordination
Common conditions treated by physiotherapy
Neurological condition/nerve damage
If you think your feline friend can benefit from some physiotherapy then do not hesitate to get in touch.
All new and existing clients will need to fill in a consent form before a course of physiotherapy can begin and gain veterinary approval. These forms will be emailed or sent out to you upon request.
