Our Services

From our new premises in Rouken Glen, Glasgow, we offer treatments in physiotherapy, hydrotherapy & laser treatment and acupuncture for your dog, cat or rabbit.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for pets, or veterinary rehabilitation, delivers a tailor made series of therapeutic exercises to alleviate symptoms, assist recovery or prevent injury.

The goal of physiotherapy is to improve quality of life, decrease pain and improve function. Physiotherapy for orthopedic conditions can include any combination of the following techniques: thermotherapy, cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, muscle building exercises, manual hands-on techniques and coordination exercises.

Neurological conditions generally benefit the most from balance and coordination building exercises, strengthening exercise and hydrotherapy.

Each physiotherapy sessions also includes use of electrotherapies including:

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Energy (PEME), which alters the transfer of pain signal through nerves and can provide effective pain relief; and LASER treatment, which stimulates the energy process of cells to accelerate healing and has pain relieving qualities.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is exercise and therapy in a warm water environment. Benefits of hydrotherapy include:

-an increase in muscle strength through low impact exercise, as buoyancy provided by water supports body weight;

-an increase in cardiovascular fitness, enhanced through the resistance of water

-increased joint range of motion to maintain flexibility and alleviate stiffness

Hydrotherapy is one of the many techniques used at Gatehouse Vet Physio, and using our state-of-the-art equipment together with the fact that the therapist is present in the treadmill throughout the treatment you'll know that your pet is in safe hands.

Acupuncture

Involves the insertion of very fine needles into the tissues and is primarily used in veterinary medicine for the pain relieving benefit it produces.

This is achieved through the body's release of substances such as endorphins in response, which act on pain killing receptors within the brain.

Most pets tolerate acupuncture treatment very well, often becoming quite sleepy during treatment. Acupuncture can only be provided by a veterinary surgeon in the UK, ensuring safe, professional and effective treatment.

Most pets will require a course of acupuncture rather han a one-off treatment. The number of sessions required depends on the condition being treated, with some longterm conditions such as osteoarthritis benefit from ongoing sessions of acupuncture.

Acupuncture can be used to manage a variety of conditions including osteoarthritis, back pain, hip dysplasia and certain urinary, skin and gastrointestinal disorders.
