Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is great for all dogs. It can help with a range of problems including:

  • Weight management
  • Post surgery rehabilitation
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Pain relief
  • Management of medical conditions
  • Mental stimulation
  • Muscle building
  • Therapeutic 
 

What to expect:

Consultation on first session

The first session will include a consultation before the swim. During this time we will conduct a gait analysis, measure the patient's muscle mass and weight and review their current condition and any past medical history that might be relevant. The first session can be a nervous experience for some patients and owners so we will take it slow and make it as comfortable as possible for both. 

The first session can last from 45 minutes to 1 hour. Every session prior will be from 25 minutes to 30 minutes.
