Animals such as cows, sheep, goats, donkeys, cats and rabbits can also benefit from physiotherapy input. Usually used after surgery or injury but can also be used to maintain a good quality of life for older animals.
Treatments are adapted for use for smaller animals. Exercise programmes tend to be made to fit into the animals day to day activities rather than a specific exercise regime as it is harder to keep their focus.
Common problems that are treated are:
Older animals with joint stiffness and weakness
Post surgery or injury
