The Canine Hydrotherapy Therapy

Hydrotherapy offers the unique benefit of weight-less exercise to animals before and after surgery, and to patients in need of regaining lost fitness due to long-term conditions including osteoarthritis and obesity.

We actively encourage the dogs to enjoy their visit to the pool with the use of floating toys, healthy treats, and lots of supportive encouragement. They will have a warm shower before and after each session, and will be dried with our warm air blaster.

What are the benefits of Hydrotherapy?

Faster Recovery Time after Surgery

Soothes Trauma in Joint and Muscle

Strengthens Respiratory Stamina

EncouragesOverall Wellbeing

Veterinary Surgeons and Orthopaedic Consultants universally recognise that Hydrotherapy offers patients, both animal and human, significant improvements in the quality and speed of rehabilitation following surgery or traumatic injury.

Swimming by its very nature, involves the use of a multiple of muscles, it avoids ground contact through buoyancy relieving the joints, ligaments, and tendons of any weight-baring, allowing improved, and a much less painful freedom of movement.

Additionally muscles have to work harder due to water-resistance, offering significant benefits for enhanced stamina and muscle-build, and reversing any muscle wastage that can occur post-surgery, or after acute or chronic conditions
