PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR OTHER SPECIES
All species, from livestock to companions can benefit from physiotherapy as a form of rehabilitation, management or fitness.
Whilst many cats may not tolerate manual therapies in the same way that dogs do, there are a multitude of ways in which physiotherapy can be applied to felines, such as LED therapy and play-led exercises.
Cats are independent, stoical creatures and are very good at hiding pain and discomfort - check out my blog for a post on how to spot the subtle signs of pain in cats.
Feline conditions that may benefit from physiotherapy:
Road Traffic Accidents
Animals such as Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Hamsters can also benefit from physiotherapy in times of need; conditions such as osteoarthritis, fractures, spinal injury, neurological disease and muscular injuries can effect small furries too!
Cows, Sheep, Alpacas, Pigs... you name it! Any animal with an injury, pain or chronic musculoskeletal condition can benefit from physiotherapy.
