Prior to assessment, a history about your dog's problems and lifestyle will be taken. A gait assessment will assess how they move in various paces and directions. It is often useful to see how your dog manages certain functional tasks such as stairs, getting up from lying and sitting. Following the movement assessment is palpation, assessing your dog's muscles, joints and tendons.


We can then plan an individual treatment programme specific to your dog and any goals you may have.


Please ensure a quiet environment when having your dog assessed. Thank you
