RA Healing Centre is proud to be the home of the first and finest trained physiotherapist in the country.
To help get a feel for what your visit could look like, here is an outline of the journey:
Your First Consultation
Once you have contacted us, we will immediately make an appointment to see you pet at the next soonest available slot.
When you arrive, you will be met by one of our friendly and reassuring therapist who will make you feel welcome, and help put both you and your pet at ease. You will be shown to our open and comfortable reception area to await your consult with our Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP), and shown where to find refreshments for both you and your animal friend.
During Your First Consultation
At your appointment time, you will be met by our assigned CCRP, who will do an extensive assessment and explain with you in an open discussion their recommendations, and together you will work out your desired course of action.
During the assessment, our therapist will be asking some questions that can aid us in understanding more about the home condition, diet, medicine, pre-existing conditions and your pet’s character.
Your pet’s blood pressure will be monitored during the assessment and a full ortheopedic assessment will be conducted. During the assessment, we will be documenting the discomfort area and locations to aid us in deciding what is the appropriate therapy for them.
The final part of the assessment will include measuring all the size of their muscles, weight and they will be place on a specially designed pressure mat (available in June 2017) to measure the weight bearing on all the four limps.
Discussion on Appropriate Treatment Plan
Our CCRP will discuss with you the appropriate physiotherapy modalites, plans, frequencies of therapy, home-care, appropriate diet and neccessary supplements required to aid your pet in their recovery.
We will be also assisting you in managing your expectations and how to monitor your pet for improvements.
A “To-Do and Not-To-Do Checklist” will be handled out to you for your reference.
Gathering of Medical Histories
Before your pet’s first rehabilitation and physiotherapy, we will be getting your furkid medical histories from all relevant veterinarians that forms the Multi-Discipline Team (MDT). We will be working along side with your preferred veterinarian and he/she will be the veterinarian who will signed on the Referral Forms and we will be updating them with the neccessary progress.
In this manner, we ensure that your pet is well looked after.
There is NO ONE THERAPY that is suitable for all medical conditions. It is our job and responsibility to inform your veterinarian about the Contraindications and Cautions of each of the therapy.
Once the medical histories have been obtained, our team of therapists will be documenting and ensure that your MDT has not contridict each other, and the therapies we are doing do not overlap with what your MDT is trying to achieve.
