At Ark Vets, we believe in an holistic approach to treatment and confidently recommend the services of our visiting physical therapist, Karen Kennedy. Karen is a qualified veterinary nurse with a postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy. Over the past few years, it has become apparent that physical therapy benefits animals as much as, if not more than, humans. While patients such as those having undergone orthopaedic surgery, are easily identified, others might not be so apparent: animals suffering with arthritis or lower back pain, or ageing animals whose reduced muscle mass makes it harder for them to get around. The benefits to these animals are enormous: reduced recovery time from operations, less reliance on medications to achieve a good quality of life and the input of a trained health professional to ensure that future problems are prevented insofar as possible. If you think your pet might benefit from Karen’s input, please phone us on 091510131 to book an appointment today.
