Dr Naomi Boyd holds a unique dual qualification in physiotherapy and veterinary medicine, and currently works as a sports medicine veterinarian at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH) in Sydney, Australia. We explore the ways that physiotherapy can be implemented in care protocols for many different health conditions. Topics discussed include:

  • Reasons to keep ill patients moving
  • What a sports medicine diagnostic work up looks like
  • The diagnostic value of pressure mats 
  • How Dr Boyd empowers her clients to adhere to the take home treatment plans
  • A preventative plan for those pets predisposed to musculoskeletal disease (e.g. hip dysplasia)
  • Dr Boyd's thoughts on hydrotherapy 
  • "Nose work" and how it can be beneficial for energetic dogs looking for stimulation
  • Up and coming therapies for pets with osteoarthritis, including CBD, nutraceuticals and platelet rich plasma
  • How Dr Boyd instructs her clients to monitor comfort levels in their pets at home
