Below are some links to websites of companies that provide services relevant to physiotherapy management of animals.

Canine Enrichment

ideas and equipment to help keep your dog entertained while on restricted exercise and to mentally stimulate and tire rather than physically tire.

TRIXIE Memory trainer – slow feeding – dog learns to dispense dry food/treats itself – a good way to feed dinner so it takes longer

facebook pages with lots of ideas of mental games

Snuffle mats – sold many places online – local supplier

other suggestions include the KONG range of toys that you can stuff (and freeze if like) food into such as KONG wobbler and LONG stuff a ball.

Other games for dogs to work the brain are made by Nina Ottosson  or by Trixie or by Outward Hound (all available on Amazon and other places)
