Osteopathy for Dogs

We now have a dedicated dog clinic on the first Thursday of each month, at Westdale Park Home and Garden Centre, Holt Road, Bradford on Avon, BA15 1TS. Contact Mary B on 07947 304844 for an appointment. You must have your vet’s permission and we will need their contact details.

We see dogs of all shapes and sizes from Pomeranians to Wolfhounds. They all share an essential doggy nature, but they have unique problems. Sometimes these are breed specific e.g. hip dysplasia; sometimes they are related to the type of activity the dog engages in, sometimes they are due to internal problems or emotional upset. Our canine friends act as emotional antennae for us, so sometimes their problems relate to what’s happening for the human members of the household. We will assess your dog and try to understand how s/he arrived at how they are feeling today, with some help from your knowledge of the dog’s history. However, our sensitive palpation picks up information directly from the dog so if it is a rescue, or you’ve recently got it and don’t know the history, we can still assess the problem. We will advise on how much osteopathic treatment might be needed and suggest any other changes that might be helpful to the dog’s health, such as diet, exercise, or referral back to your vet.
