We Provide Best Services
At AnimalFisio, we specialise in the treatment of muscular, skeletal and neurological injuries to animals throughout the Waikato.
We work in association with veterinary surgeons to provide an assessment and appropriate treatment plan for your animal, whether they’re a family pet, sport animal or working dog.
We offer therapy for your animal to improve their way of life. The most common areas of treatment are performance enhancement, treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, post-operative rehabilitation and enhancement of quality of life for animals with degenerative conditions.
We can help with the rehabilitation of your animal and have experience with a number of conditions. We use a wide range of treatments and techniques depending on the needs of your animal. Your animal will be assessed and an individualised treatment plan will be created to suit.

Do I need a vet's referral for my animal to receive physiotherapy?
No, anyone involved in the animal’s care can refer for physiotherapy. Your vet, however, may be consulted in order to ensure your animal receives the appropriate treatment.
Do you only treat performance animals?
Not at all! We do mainly tend to treat performance horses, but we treat all types of dogs. Whether they’re your at-home pet or racing on a track, we can help.
How long does treatment usually take?
Treatment usually takes one hour.
Do you only treat horses and dogs?
Horses and dogs are our main specialties, but we do treat more than that. If you have another animal that needs attention, get in touch for a consultation and we would love to help!
