At the initial appointment (on receiving a veterinary referral and past medical history for the pet), a full history will be taken to gain an insight into the present illness and the problems the pet is currently experiencing.

The pet will then be examined with an assessment of their gait at different paces. The muscles and joints, to include range of movement will be assessed and an individual therapy programme will then be discussed and planned accordingly with the owner. Other forms of therapy may be discussed if deemed appropriate for the pet and their well being.
