canine physiotherapy

Before treatment, permission is sought from the registered vet for the animal in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons (1966) act. Jazz will contact the vet for you once provided with details

Canine physiotherapy is conducted in the animal’s home environment.

Jazz feels that better results are gained with your dog feeling relaxed and comfortable and will work hard to build a bond with your dog during treatment. Jazz will observe your dog in motion and their natural conformation and posture. Please note that a dog presenting with a new lameness will be referred back to the vet.


Treatment consists of a combination of manual techniques and class 3B laser therapy if indicated. Jazz strongly believes that lasting results are seen when exercises are undertaken between treatments so a tailored programme of simple exercises will be prescribed to you. Another benefit of home visits is that Jazz can advise on any adjustments such as stairs and flooring to make things easier for your dog
