What Clients Say
Nathalie is an absolut great an caring physio, always in search for new and the best therapy for your dog.
Happy to be there with my buddy.
Following a TTA operation, we decided to put our Viszla on hydrotherapy treatment. Our puppy absolutely loved it!
Gradually, she got confident and regained all her muscles; 4 months after, she has completely recovered and she enjoys life every day more
Thank you Nathalie!!!
Teagan just loves to go there for her physio and hydro. I highly recommend it for all ages of dogs as they can all benefit from the treatments and the kind nature of Nathalie.
Teagan is 8 now and I see the benefits each time.
Nathalie is helping my happy girl stay healthy and fit despite her bad hips and she just loves to get in the water there.
We have a 7 year old labrador who broke his knee last year and underwent a very rough surgery with about 3 months of recovery.
We started going to Nathalie once a week to help him build his stamina again and she did some physiotherapy together with hydrotherapy.
Excellent results and can truly reccomend fitdog. Eddy is happy and healthy and sure enjoyed the water and treats.
When we adopted Stella she had a badly broken leg. She couldn’t walk on her front left leg and had three consequent operations.
What eventually really helped her to walk better were the treatments at Fitdog.
These gave her more confidence and strength to walk better and thanks to Nathalie she now walks normal and painfree.
My dogs just love to go to FitDog and Nathalie. For my old labrador this is heaven, after every session you can really see an improvement and she is so agile.
Without Nathalie she would be stiff and be on painkillers.
We just love FITDOG.
For a couple of months I have been taking my dog to Fitdog following surgery on my dog’s leg. Nathalie, the owner, is really amazing with dogs.
It’s obvious she loves each dog individually, but more importantly, she knows what she’s doing. My dog is on the road to recovery thanks to Fitdog.
Highly recommend their services if your dog is recovering from an injury, or perhaps needs some physical therapy to deal with another ailment.
Thanks to Nathalie and Fitdog my dog had a much better quality of life in his old days.
Dog unwilling to go out on his daily walks due to pain caused by arthritis at the age of 16 got a brand new life after we started weekly treatments.
I could already see a change in his behavior after first visit at Fitdog. He was much more lively, happier and pain free.
