Paws in Motion Canine Rehabilitation offers assessment and rehabilitation services for dogs following illness or injury. If your dog is a family pet or canine athlete I can help with decreasing pain and inflammation, improving range of motion, strength, and balance and preparing your dog for return to activity. Essentially, whatever you would go and see a physiotherapist for, I can do the same for your dog. Wherever possible, I will work closely with your veterinarian to ensure continuity of care for your dog.

Why you should see a Registered Physiotherapist for your dog’s rehabilitation:
- Canine rehabilitation is an unregulated profession, it can be done by anyone, even someone who has had no training at all.
- A Registered Physiotherapist has had years of training and extensive experience assessing and treating people. They have then gone on to do further, canine specific, training to ensure that they are properly qualified to work with you and your dog.
- A Registered Physiotherapist will work with your veterinarian to ensure the best care is being provided for your dog’s condition.
