animal physiotherapy

Increasing wellbeing and mobility through targeted movement therapies.

When is animal physiotherapy useful for my pet?

Your pet could benefit from animal physical therapy if they need to recover from an injury or surgery, suffer from chronic pain, or have problems with being overweight. Physiotherapy is also recommended to prevent symptoms, such as movement restrictions in old age and to generally promote fitness.

Was wir anbieten

manual therapy

This form of therapy uses targeted hand movements and techniques to treat joint problems and improve mobility. It helps relieve pain and promotes natural healing.

lymphatic drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle massage technique that aims to help remove excess fluid in tissues and stimulate the lymphatic system. This method is particularly helpful for swelling and to support the immune system.

Active and passive movement therapy

Active movement therapy involves exercises that your animal performs independently, while passive movement therapy involves movements that are performed on your pet to maintain or improve mobility. Both forms are essential for the rehabilitation and prevention of injuries.

proprioception training

This training aims to improve your pet's body awareness. It helps animals to develop a better sense of the position of their limbs, which is particularly important after injuries or neurological disorders.


Massages promote relaxation, improve circulation and can help reduce pain and relieve tension. They are a valuable addition to the comprehensive treatment of your pet.

What is the process?

What is the process of animal physiotherapy at filu?

Animal physiotherapy uses various techniques to promote your pet's health and wellbeing. Here is an overview of the typical process:

  1. Rating: Our qualified animal physiotherapist will first carry out a detailed evaluation of your pet. It tests mobility, identifies possible pain points and assesses general physical condition in order to obtain a holistic overview.
  2. Treatment plan: Based on the initial assessment, she draws up an individual treatment plan. This includes manual therapies, targeted exercises, massages and, if necessary, special treatments such as lymphatic drainage or proprioception training.
  3. Carrying out the therapy: The actual therapy involves a combination of passive and active treatments. Passive treatments, such as manual therapy and massages, are carried out by the therapist. Active treatments consist of special exercises that the animal performs itself, often supported by our therapist or by you as the owner.
  4. Monitoring and adjustment: The animal's progress is continuously monitored by filu and the treatment plan is adjusted as needed to achieve the best results.
  5. Exercises to do at home: At the end of the session, you will receive special exercises to do at home with your animal. These are aimed at increasing the therapeutic effects and supporting the healing process.

Great wonderful practice, super friendly staff, great vet who hasn't lost touch with the animal at all. Were there for an emergency on a Saturday evening and there was a special wait for us. Emphatic & competent — an absolute recommendation from the heart.

I have been with filu with my dog Zeus since he was a puppy and can heartily recommend this veterinary practice. Everyone there is very nice and friendly with the animals, whether they are vets or nurses. By the way, the practice is super clean and ultra-modern. Unfortunately, my dog had to have fairly invasive surgery early on as a puppy and everything worked out wonderfully there! Absolute recommendation, always happy to come back here.

I got an appointment for my dog at very short notice (as a new patient) because she wasn't feeling well at all. We were treated well and competently. In addition, this is the first vet where my dog was not afraid and even went to the treatment table of his own accord. We love staying patients here!
