Welcome to Paw Paw - Tierphysiotherapie. Empathetic, species-appropriate, 
Practice and home visits.

I treat dogs, cats, and other small animals. Since April 2024 you can also find me in my practice in Bornholmerstr. 5, 10439 Berlin. ​

Please note that unfortunately I cannot offer home visits for new patients at the moment. Later home visits in Pankow, Prenzlauer Berg and Weißensee are still possible for very anxious or physically limited animals. ​

I am fluent in German, English and Lithuanian.


Physical therapy can significantly improve the quality of your pet’s life. It animals move without pain and live species-appropriate life into old age.



Physical therapy helps:

  • To relieve pain

  • To maintain or build up muscles and mobility

  • Practice healthy movement

  • Promote the healing process before and after surgeries

  • Relieve age-related problems.


Different forms of treatment can be combined and individually adapted based on the patient’s needs.

 Therapy Process


Therapy plan is always adapted to individual animal needs. However, the first steps are always the same:

  • Book an appointment online, via E-mail or Phone.

  • You come to my practice or if a home visit is needed, I come to your place at the appointed time.

  • At the beginning of the therapy, the primary diagnosis is made. I collect the detailed anamnesis, perform the inspection in the stand, gait analysis, and perform a thorough evaluation of the joints.

  • On that basis, I develop an individual therapy plan for the upcoming appointments.

Who am I?

My name is Julija Rusteikaite and I am a certified Animal Physical Therapist and Veterinary Nurse with a University degree and many years of experience. My approach is holistic. I believe that not only the primary symptoms but also the whole organism should be regarded and treated. Connection with animals is very important to me. I treat every animal with tranquility and respect. I want to make the experience of the therapy pleasant and relaxing for both you and your pet. Physical Therapy should be good not only for the body but also for the spirit.
