Surrey Veterinary Physiotherapy

Your Animal Physiotherapy Appointment

You will need to allow 60-90 minutes for your first consultation, and about 60 minutes for each treatment session.

The first time we meet, your animal will be observed at rest and moving at a walk and trot. Horses may be lunged and / or ridden too, depending on the nature of the complaint. Please be prepared to walk and trot your animal up, or if necessary, please arrange for someone else to be present who can do this.Animal Physiotherapy Appointment with Surrey Vet Physio - Physiotherapist in Animal Therapy - Animal Physiotherapist Appointment

After the observation and gait analysis a careful clinical examination will commence. This includes palpation of soft tissues and the assessment of joints for their range of movement. Any pain responses will be noted at this stage, and often secondary problems which have arisen as a result of an initial injury or condition are identified. These can be simultaneously managed.

If your vet has sent through case notes, these will have been examined prior to the appointment. You'll be asked additional questions about your animal's condition, behaviour, normal routine, normal performance, nutrition, exercise regime etc. which can all help to form a better view of the problem, and to formulate a bespoke treatment plan which best fits with your aspirations, available time and resources.

After this initial consultation a treatment plan will be discussed, detailing the frequency and likely duration of the physiotherapy sessions required, together with the treatment modalities to be employed. This plan, together with the clinical findings will be shared with your vet.

If approval to provide physiotherapy treatment has been agreed in advance with your vet, and you are happy with the proposed treatment plan, then an initial course of treatment can usually commence at this time. Please remember, you are never under any obligation to use the services, or to commence the treatment plan proposed. It's far more important to us that you are happy and confident in your choice of animal therapist.

Throughout the treatment session you may be required to play a part, which may, for example, involve holding your animal, reassuring and soothing them, provision of water. Treatments can progress in your absence, but many owners find it beneficial to attend, learning new skills that can be applied in future. Whilst not absolutely necessary, those animals with the very best outcomes are usually those whose owners are willing and able to continue with manual therapies between sessions.
