Physiotherapy for farm animals is an underestimated area of rehabilitation. Just like dogs and horses, farm animals can suffer from injury, disease or simply pain that can have negative effects on their production and, more importantly, their welfare. Whether they are born with a limb deformity, slip and injure themselves, or are your top pedigree breeding animal, REC Veterinary Physiotherapy is here to help!

REC Veterinary Physiotherapy strives to increase the awareness of livestock physiotherapy and help more and more animals receive the benefits of physiotherapy.

What conditions can physiotherapy treat in ruminants and other farm animals?

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in a range of livestock conditions, including:

  • Fractures
  • Nerve damage, including following calving and the “splits”
  • Muscle injury and wastage
  • Tendon and ligament injury, including laxity following birth
  • Wounds, cuts and skin abrasions, including after surgery
  • Bruising, swelling, inflammation
  • Recumbency
  • Reduced performance
  • Reduced showing and sales potentials

Physiotherapy in livestock is a relatively naïve area, but more and more research is being conducted into how physiotherapy and rehabilitation can help common farm animal conditions.

With your help, REC Veterinary Physiotherapy will contribute towards the development of this new and exciting field of physiotherapy, finding different ways of treating common musculoskeletal ailments.
