Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy uses a variety of manual therapies in order to reduce tightness, increase suppleness, reduce pain and increase performance.
Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy provides a range of electrotherapy services such as Laser, Short Wave Ultrasound, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, TENS, NMES, Heat and Cold therapy.
Prescribed remedial exercise implementation allows for a progression and increase in performance, due to an increase in strength, balance and proprioception.
This will involve a full static and dynamic assessment of your horse, including spinal, neurological and range of motion assessments. Following this, a treatment plan will be put in place, using manual techniques, electrotherapy treatment and remedial exercise. A rehabilitation plan is issued to you after the consultation, in order to allow your horse to progress at home.
Following your horse’s initial assessment and treatment, any subsequent treatments (for the same condition) will be at a reduced rate. These sessions will still include a full assessment and physiotherapy treatments.
A 10% discount is available when 3 or more horses from one yard book in together.
*Please note, an additional charge of €0.80 per km will apply for call-outs beyond 15km of Dublin 13.
*Cancellation Policy – Depending on the circumstances, cancellations or postponements within 48 hours will be charged at 50% of the price of the session, increasing to 100% when made within 24 hours of the appointment or if the appointment is missed. Lateness of more than 30 minutes without prior notification will also be deemed as you having missed your appointment. It is understood that sometimes things do happen at short notice but please always try to notify us as early as possible of any changes as it helps to ensure that time is never wasted and that another animal may be able to benefit from your appointment space instead. Following repeat cancellations, Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy reserves the right to request full payment of treatment fees and any applicable cancellation charges in advance when re-booking.
Hannah from Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy really helped our pony improve after a kissing spine diagnosis. He now seems a lot more comfortable and willing to work. We will be back!
