All breeds catered for

Injuries can occur in any dogs from competitive agility or fly ball dogs to pet dogs playing in a garden. Working, sporting or competition dogs such as, police dogs, sheep dogs, gun dogs,  agility, and obedience often benefit from regular treatment to maintain fitness, improve performance, reduce asymmetries, reduce the risk of injury and maximise performance potential.  Some dogs are predisposed to injury due to their conformation or breed such as spinal injuries in Dachshunds or hip dysplasia in Labradors, German shepherds or Rottweilers.
