A dog is mans best friend whether they are a working dog or a much loved family member. A dogs behaviour can usually tell us something isn`t right, for example not jumping into the car or going up stairs anymore. Common conditions that affect dogs and can cause pain or a change on function are spinal problems, soft tissue injury and osteoarthritis to name a few. Physiotherapy can help with all these conditions and work alongside your vet to get your dog back on track.
