Dog Physiotherapy

Like us, dogs can also suffer from musculoskeletal complaints.
Why not provide them with therapies?

Getting your dog free of pain and keep him like that are a big priority for Emilie.
She wants to give your dog his joy of life back!

The dog, companion animal or sport partner, we want him / her always in top shape!
It is therefore no different from humans, they occasionally need rehabilitation.

Each dog deserves a customized and personal approach,
so Emilie Depasse will always take into account the characteristics and the requested sports performance of the dog.

The anatomy and the related functions of the dog's motor system work perfectly in harmony if they are in balance.

Difficulties in walking / exercising / sporting or even problems that occur during brushing / combing can appear due to musculoskeletal complaints.

An overloaded back that has become so immobile the dog begins to compensate elsewhere in the body can have a huge impact on the quality of life of the dog.

Dogs with a shortage of muscle mass on the hindquarters may painfully overload the back and shoulders.

Dogs with severe hip dysplasia can often be treated very well in a conservative non-surgical manner with extra muscle build-up.

Also post-surgical: after a rupture of the cruciate ligaments (after a TTA or TPLO operation technique), after surgical repair of a fracture with osteosynthesis, after a femur head excision, amputation,... the dog really benefits from physiotherapy.

Regardless of what may have been the cause of the complaints,
Emilie Depasse will always examine the dog and treat him appropriately.

She will also ask the owner what he / she wants the dog to do and she will explain how to avoid problems in the future.

In sport dogs her focus lies on the different aspects of the sport and how they are executed by the dog.

Emilie’s suitable advice regarding warming-up, stretching and cooling down will also help you to prevent the pains of the dog. In many cases, Emilie explains some short exercises to do at home with the dog.

Especially in sports dogs, acute pain can quickly evolve and transform into chronic pain.

Small glitches in the movement of dogs are often very subtle.

For this reason, it is advisable to have a physical therapy check regularly done for a sports dog.

The sports control is certainly interesting before and after the competition season or just before a competition.

Also in doubt whether there is an injury, you can contact Emilie for a check.

Unfortunately, many (sports) dogs suffer from complaints that aren’t known.

The purpose is to train your dog in an anatomically and physiologically correct manner without going to compensate the dog in other regions of the body.
