Physiotherapy for Cats – Truffles’ story
Our cats are happiest when they are free to explore. But this freedom to roam and explore comes with its own risks.
Truffles was found a day after she was hit by a car outside her home. She was rushed to the vets, where the owners were given the prognosis of her losing her left hind leg. She had already lost the nails on all four of her paws.
Thankfully, X-Ray results showed no significant damage to the bone – only soft tissue trauma to the leg. She was sent home after her leg was repaired and stitched up.
But now Truffles had 6 challenging months ahead to gradually regain full function of the leg. At Petffisio, this was achieved using physiotherapy and exercises, laser therapy and PMFT (Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy) for pain management. After a year, Truffles now has no lameness and all the ligaments and structures have repaired and she is now a happy curious cat once again!
