Investigation and treatment of lameness
The pet rehab team is led by Vet Rachel Mowbray who works closely with the other therapists in the team to achieve both a diagnosis and treatment plan for cases of lameness, stiffness or pain.
First a detailed history is taken covering all aspects of your pet’s history and daily activities.
Gait analysis is then performed which involves watching how an animal moves at a variety of speeds and may involve slow motion video analysis or use of the treadmill.
A detailed orthopaedic and neurological examination is then performed.
From this a diagnosis may be made or recommendations for further tests such as advanced imaging.
We offer a unique ‘one stop shop’ with our different therapists all on site. Often, we find that owners come to us with dogs who have a long term chronic problem that has been treated with several different therapies but where the underlying problem has never been properly diagnosed. Our holistic approach can help find an underlying answer for your pet's lameness or pain and hence formulate a treatment plan.
