Feline Physiotherapy

Just like dogs, cats have the same need for support following trauma and surgery as well as management for ongoing conditions. Pain and discomfort can be a little harder to detect in cats due to their independent and stoic nature.

Some potential indicators for pain and discomfort include:

  • Sleeping more than normal

  • Reluctant to jump

  • Loss of appetite

  • Not wanting to be stroked

  • Not grooming themselves as much- may have a dull coat

  • Not going outside as much

  • Lameness

  • Behavioural changes such as aggression, hiding away or not purring/vocalising as much.

If you are concerned your cat is showing one or more signs it is recommended to speak to their vet first. ​Physiotherapy treatment requires veterinary consent as per the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966). If you think your cat requires physiotherapy please download our Vet Referral Form for your Veterinary Surgeon to fill out.
