Small Animal Physiotherapy
We treat mainly dogs and occasionally cats, ranging from much loved pets and companions, to sporting, working and competition animals. We provide a full initial assessment of each client helping us build a tailored treatment plan, as well as reassessing your animal at every visit. We treat lots of conditions including orthopedic, neurological and musculoskeletal problems and pain as well as helping to maintain each animal at their optimal level.
A wide range of techniques are used including manual therapy, electrotherapy, remedial exercises, and other modalities, enabling us to maximise the benefits to each individual. Each treatment is tailored to the specific requirements of your animal, a sound knowledge base and clinical reasoning is used to decide on the best possible treatment course.
Treating under veterinary referral alongside your vets and other professionals allows us to gain a holistic approach to all round well-being for your horse.

Help us, Help them!
At Fauna, we believe that to maximise the benefits to your animals we need your help, we often give you exercises to do and a home care plan. We do fully explain and demonstrate each exercise or technique as well as providing a written home exercise program specific to your animal, this can either be emailed or printed and posted. We can provide crib sheets for exercises, so you can refer back to them.
You can also visit our YouTube channel for how-to videos for most exercises.
If at any point you are unable to complete the exercises or your animal is struggling please contact us we can always find alternative ways to achieve similar.
New clients require an initial assessment, this includes a detailed case history and workup, including a thorough static, dynamic and palpation assessment, to allow us to come up with the best possible treatment program for your animal. This session includes a comprehensive treatment.
treatments may comprise of a mix of electrotheraputic modalities, manual therapies, and remedial exercises.
A complementary home exercise and care plan is provided and amended after each treatment. This enables us to help your animal get the most out of each session.
