Massage And Pain Clinics

At Glebe Vets, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for your pets, and our nurse clinics offer specialised services to address various health needs. Our massage and pain management clinics, run by our nurse Evie, focus on improving the quality of life for pets suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis, pain, and geriatric care. Here's what these clinics involve:

  • Questionnaire:
    • Prior to the consultation, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire to provide information about your pet's health history, symptoms, and daily routine.
  • Massage Techniques:
    • demonstration of massage techniques that you can use at home to help alleviate your pet's pain and improve their mobility.
  • Lifestyle Advice:
    • Tailored lifestyle advice, including recommendations for home and exercise adaptations to accommodate your pet's condition and improve their comfort.
  • Tailored Exercise Plans:
    • A personalised exercise plan will be developed to suit your pet's needs and abilities, promoting mobility and strength while minimising discomfort.
  • Gait Analysis:
    • Gait analysis may be performed to assess your pet's movement patterns and identify any abnormalities that may contribute to pain or discomfort.
  • Objective Monitoring Tools:
    • Objective monitoring tools will be utilised to track your pet's progress and ensure they are receiving appropriate pain relief and management.
  • Discussion of Other Therapies:
    • Discussion of additional therapeutic options available for your pet's condition, such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, or nutritional supplements.
  • Weight Management:
    • Weight management strategies will be discussed to help maintain your pet at a healthy weight, which can reduce stress on joints and improve overall mobility.

By offering a multimodal approach to pain management and geriatric care, we aim to provide a comfortable and fulfilling life for your beloved pet. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation with Evie, please don't hesitate to contact our practice.
