Canine Physiotherapy

 

Fraser Veterinary Physiotherapy aims to return dogs to their peak performance by reducing pain, accelerating healing, aiding mobility and retraining gait. We also aim to aid and develop performance for working and sporting dogs. This is achieved using a variety of techniques and modalities, for more information on these, please visit our services page.
