Enhance your pets quality of life
At CARE we use various therapies, techniques and exercises to improve an animal’s mobility, enhance surgical outcomes, minimise pain and increase lifespan. Animals may be experiencing all sorts of symptoms as a result of injury, a developmental condition or a chronic condition related to old age.
Physiotherapy makes an enormous difference to the comfort and mobility of most animal’s and can greatly enhance quality of life for both animal and owner.
Physiotherapy treatment may benefit your dog if they suffer from any of the following:

CARE Veterinary Physiotherapy is a proud supporter and has the pleasure in working with Pawsome Pensions, fundraising and providing physiotherapy for retired Police and Fire dogs if needed.
Pawsome Pensions is a registered charity (charity number: 1188907) that has been set up to help support our Retired Police Dogs from Devon, Dorset & Cornwall Police services and Fire dogs from Devon & Somerset Fire and Rescue Services.
Pawsome Pensions are incredibly fortunate that Police Dogs receive a one off payment from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner when they retire, but as you can imagine this doesn’t last long. So, it is our intention to enhance this generous donation and raise money to ensure they receive the best veterinary care possible, ensuring they have an excellent quality of life in their retirement years by helping towards their veterinary care/ treatment.
A working Police or Fire Dog can serve many years, providing an invaluable service to the communities they work in and the officers they work with. When the dogs retire the handler or the new adopter take on the full responsibility for that dog and all the financial commitments of caring for a retired working dog.
If you would like to support, donate, or would like any additional information about Pawsome Pensions please visit their website.
