Vet physio vs Massage

How do you choose? And What’s even the difference?

So let’s start by looking at the difference between veterinary physiotherapy and massage treatments here at Fit-Pet Physio.

Veterinary Physiotherapy uses a combination of manual therapies including massage as well as electrotherapies and exercise therapies. This gives your pet a bespoke and comprehensive treatment for any underlying conditions as well as a great basis for a fitness and conditioning plan in fit pets.

Massage therapy uses the same assessment techniques as vet physiotherapy but with only manual therapy and no follow-up exercise therapy. This means that massage therapy helps relieve any pain and tension in your pet’s muscles but will not help improve their fitness.

Now you know the difference how do you decide what’s right for your pet?
