Cats are notorious for getting themselves in to trouble, curious by the nature the potential for getting injured is high. Cats can get hit by cars, injure ligaments, tendons and muscles when jumping off fences or can get nasty abscesses if they get into a fight with another cat. Physiotherapy can help your cat to recover and get back on his feet again following injury or surgery.
Like people as cat’s age they get worn stiff joints and you may notice that your cat is having difficult jumping onto chairs etc. Physiotherapy can help to keep your cat mobile and supple by teaching you some simple exercises to help your cat maintain mobility and independence.
Cats generally respond very well to physiotherapy but some cats do need a little more time to settle when in the clinic. From experience of working with cats physiotherapy is more effective when it is little and often.
