Luis gave a really lovely specific anecdote to explain why he loves physio and the results it produces when he appeared on Cuppa Tea With the Vet. You can see the snippet from his interview below:
Luis tells us why he loves physio:
I have a rabbit that has arthritis. Really, really bad arthritis. We’d started him on a new drug cocktail, literally last week, because sometimes he gets tired and starts dragging his back legs. And watching physio work on him, because we took him to physio, was like a revelation moment where you’re like, “oh, so there is no need for drugs”. Sometimes you actually can achieve very good results with physio. I was sold after that. After actually seeing it work properly. And he is a good rabbit. So I don’t know if most rabbits would tolerate physio quite as well as he does because he is quite a confident rabbit. But with him yeah, he did the exercises fine. He did the treadmill fine. Even did some acupuncture which was cool. And yeah, in a couple of weeks and he regained a lot of mobility which is nice. I really, really, really liked the results.
“My name is Luis, I am Portuguese by birth, but have chosen to be Welsh for the past 3 years. I started my journey as a vet in the UK in the meat industry but made the jump to small animal practice very quickly. Earlier this year I decided to be a telemedicine consultant full time.”
