***IMPORTANT INFO RE COVID-19***
Appointments are still going ahead with strict measures in place, and owners will be required to complete a risk assessment checklist prior to confirmation of appointments.
Canine Initial Assessment:
Once veterinary referral/consent has been received, a convenient appointment will be organised. Please allow 60-90 minutes for the initial assessment and treatment to be carried out including discussion of clinical history and relevant assessments such as palpation, static and dynamic assessments, range of motion, neurological if applicable and treatment. We will decide on our priority area(s) for treatment, after a discussion with you regarding our finding. Following the initial assessment, a treatment plan will be communicated to you.
Canine Follow Up:
For the follow-up, please allow 45-60 minutes to discuss the progress of your animal, the effectiveness of the plan given and any changes that need to necessarily be made. Also, a home exercise plan will be tailored to your animal with full explanations and relevant demonstrations of every exercise/treatment regime to be completed between every appointment.
