What will the session involve?

Esther will come and meet you and your pet in your home.  This omits a stressful journey to a veterinary environment which often times may prevent your pet from relaxing.

The first visit will involve assessing your pet’s condition and developing a rehabilitation plan specific to their needs.  The number of sessions will be determined by the condition.  Home programs will be provided to enable you to take an active part in your pet’s rehabilitation on a daily basis.   Some conditions may benefit from daily use of various machines which are available to rent.

Esther will work closely with your Veterinary Surgeon to help provide the best possible care for your pet.  Your Veterinary Surgeon will be kept up to date with reports of your pet’s progress.
