Veterinary Physiotherapy In Easy Steps
It should not solely be human beings that can take advantage and enjoy the benefits of physiotherapy. Now, for the very first time in Singapore, veterinary physiotherapy is available for your pets may as well.
For most diseases, veterinary physiotherapy is considered as a vital alternative or ‘added extra’ that helps move your pet towards health and fitness, a highly beneficial adjunct to ‘normal’ veterinary medicene that not every vet can administer.
Even though domestic household pets and horses are likely to be the most common species to receive and benefit from ‘physio’, nearly all species will gain an advantage from doing so — even lesser known or less common exotic pets and animals that inhabit farms. The existence of qualified veterinarian physiotherapists has exploded in recent times, and as a rwesult, it has become far more common for normal pet insurance to provide cover for any fees (but you must check this with your own insurer).
Hence, veterinarian physiotherapy is well set for being more widely available for most pet owners within a few short years, and at Animal Wold Clinic, we’re delighted that we’ve started the ball rolling by being the original (and therefore the best) veterinary or animal physiotherapists in Singapore.
