Many of our patients for shockwave therapy are on reduced/restricted exercise during their treatment, but we understand it can be very hard for both dogs and owners, particularly if they are used to a lot of exercise.
Jaffa came to us for a course of shockwave to treat arthritis in her elbow, and is a very important member of a local search and rescue team.
She is still undergoing treatment, and on "light duties", but the rest of her team are missing her, and hopefully with ongoing medical management at the QVSH she will be back on duty in no time!
Thanks to her owners for permission to share her story.
For more details about shockwave therapy please visit and vets wishing to refer a case for shockwave please contact the Hospital on 01223 337621

There is now no direct access from JJ Thompson Avenue. Access is now from Charles Babbage Road.

We are carrying out an important research project into the development of the nostrils in brachycephalic (short-faced) dog breeds. The breeds that we are looking at in this study are French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Pugs.
If you are a new owner of one of these breeds and would like to help us by taking part in this study, please take a look at the following page by clicking on the title link.
