PHYSIOTHERAPY

ANIMAL PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES FOR CATS AND DOGS

We offer specialist physiotherapy service for cats and dogs at both our Sylvia Park and Mount Albert hospitals for animals that need extra help with mobility, recovery from injury, rehabilitation or arthritis. Both your regular veterinarian and your VSA specialist should be able to inform you on how physiotherapy can help your pet.

The VSA Physiotherapy team provide in-depth physiotherapy assessments and treatments to speed recovery and maximise outcomes.  Sarah Cruickshank and her team of Veterinary Physiotherapists lead the field of veterinary physiotherapy and rehabilitation in this country.

Check out our video for an introduction to the VSA Physiotherapy team and an insight into our technology and facilities.

VSA Physiotherapy Service

FIND OUT HOW PHYSIOTHERAPY CAN HELP YOUR PET

World-class physiotherapy facilities

The facility at VSA includes some of the best equipment available including K-laser, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and exercise rehabilitation equipment.  One of the features of the service is the underwater treadmill, which assists in recovery of strength, proprioception, ambulation and mobility in our patients with neurological or orthopaedic disease.

Surgical patients have immediate in-house physiotherapy input while at VSA as in-patients, in order to maximise recovery and restore function after surgery.  Pet owners are given individualised home exercise programmes and education by one of our physiotherapists, ensuring our patients receive the highest standard of continued care.
