Welcome to Harvey

A big happy welcome to Harvey. This is such a happy little dog, but sadly his hind legs are starting to fail him. The minds willing but the legs aren't!

So we have started him on a series of muscle building and co-ordination exercises. He is so compliant and mum needs a BIG Gold star for all the effort she is putting in too!

So far he is doing very well and his fitness is improving. We will keep him his happy self for a lot longer now he's started his physiotherapy!

Keep up the good work Harvey and mum!

welcome to Jo

Hello and welcome to Jo. This poor little cat had a run in with a car, and as always, came out worst. But he did get off lightly and is recovering well.

He suffered a jaw fracture and so is the second cat to come to us, in as many months, for physiotherapy to rehabilitate jaw trauma. Both cats are doing wonderfully well.

Jo is now eating well and grooming without difficulty.

Keep up the good work Jo! And well done mum for doing all the gentle massage needed to assist the successful healing.

Welcome to Darcy

Hello and welcome to Darcy. And much loved Tervuren. Not a breed you see very often!

Poor Darcy has a back problem where his spinal disks are a bit unstable in a few places. But he's very happy and living a full life and refuses to be calmed down by it!

He is on a physiotherapy program to help mum learn how best to help him. That way we can keep him happy and active for a long time to come.

Keep up the good work Darcy

Cat Fact

Did you know that 90% of cats over 12 years young have arthritis!

They often show no limp so the signs are more difficult to spot.

If you would like to know if your cat maybe effected then call us or speak to your vet.

Or try our mobility checker.

A cat is classed as middle aged at 8-11 years.

A cat is classes as senior at 11-15 years and that makes them equivalent to a 60 years old human.

A cat is classed as geriatric at 15 - 21 years.

A cat older than 21 years, is an amazing cat!

Welcome to Choccy

Choccy joins our physiotherapy club. She moves very well according to the eye of most people. But Choccy is a working dog and so peak performance is essential. Since she ran into a fence, she has not moved with the same sleek elegance for her full exercise period.

She is a happy dog and her mum wants to keep her that way and make sure she is getting the most out of her daily life.

Shes been set up on a program of investigation and massage to start her off with.

Happy healing Choccy
