“Would highly recommend Butterwick Animal Rehab Clinic.
I have taken my 3 year old lab for roughly 9 weeks who was
diagnosed with elbow dysplasia. The Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy
sessions are helping him get back to a normal active lifestyle.
The staff are highly professional and well trained. My lab is a little anxious
and they go above and beyond to put him at ease.”

“Always 5* service from staff at Butterwick. They have helped my Labrador
return to fitness after several bouts of lameness in back legs. We continue
to attend for maintenance appointments & it is reassuring that staff take the
time to listen and understand any concerns I have. I have received great
advice regarding injuries and rehab – with everything fully explained.”
