Canine Clinics

Grappenhall and Freckleton

Great news, we have restarted the canine physiotherapy and hydrotherapy clinic at Grappenhall.  At present the clinics are on Fridays.

We have a new clinic at Freckleton (WA10 3AS) where Amy will be based on Monday afternoons.

At both clinics we can provide both land-based physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to suit the needs and requirements of your dog’s rehabilitation.

If Holt is more suitable or more convenient we can provide land-based physiotherapy here too.

Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy is such a valuable tool in your dog’s recovery from injury.  Here is a list of common conditions which we treat:

  • Hip/elbow dysplasia
  • Rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery like cruciate repairs, hip replacements, femoral head osteotomies
  • Osteoarthritis and age related joint issues
  • Soft tissue injuries to tendon, ligament and muscle
  • Rehabilitation following spinal surgery
  • Conservative treatment for neurological and orthopaedic conditions
  • Healing of wounds, scar tissue and oedema
  • Fittening programmes for weight loss
  • Sporting injuries, return to and maintenance of sporting fitness

If your dog displays any of the signs below, he or she may benefit from physiotherapy:

  • Stiffness
  • Difficulty getting up and down
  • Lameness
  • Pain
  • Behavioural changes
  • Different gait or shortened stride
  • Uncharacteristic behaviour
  • Decrease in energy levels
  • Becoming unwilling to be touched or groomed
  • Difficulty/unwillingness to jump into the car
  • Excessive licking of limbs
