Hydrotherapy & Physiotherapy: Information for Vets

Active Paws Rehabilitation and Fitness works closely with local Sunshine Coast vets to provide professional rehabilitation services to their patients. Get in touch to see how we can help your patient’s recovery.

Our Practice Approach

As a fully independent, highly trained, and specialist hydrotherapy rehabilitation service, we believe we are well placed to be part of a multi-disciplinary approach and would seek to work with your practice with a shared goal of improved patient outcomes.  To further improve patient outcomes, we have teamed up with Four Paws Physiotherapy who will be working with us at our Centre to provide a fully integrated rehabilitation service utilising both hydrotherapy and physiotherapy as appropriate.

As part of our professional practice, we are totally committed to ensuring that we always work strictly within our area of professional competence and boundaries and refer back to referring vets as required in the best interests of the patients at all times.  We prepare regular progress reports and circulate to all members of the patient’s care team, welcoming the opportunity for regular input and feedback so that the hydrotherapy treatment plan can be optimised to achieve the agreed goals and outcomes.

If you would like to refer your patients to us, but don’t know us very well, we invite you to contact us via email or phone. You’re invited to visit our Coolum Beach location where we can run you through what we do and answer any of your questions. We have no doubt that you’ll gain full confidence in our ability to look after your patients in the same, caring and professional manner as you do.
