HYDROTHERAPY & PHYSIOTHERAPY

Hydrotherapy - Pool & Underwater Treadmill

Hydrotherapy provides a non weight bearing form of exercise in a specially designed heated swimming pool, providing excellent therapy for dogs in need of careful rehabilitation after injury or those suffering with general orthopedic conditions.

 

Our hydrotherapy pool can also be used for fun and fitness swims too.

Our hydrotherapy programs are individually tailored and designed around each individual patient, to provide the best rehabilitation and fitness program with the aim of improving and enhancing your dogs physical and mental well being.

 

To assist in creating an effective program a gait analysis will be performed on the patients initial consultation which will include photographic and video graphic supporting evidence which will be used to monitor the improvement of the patient over the course of the program.

Hydrotherapy can be used to treat conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Hip & elbow dysplasia

  • Spinal injuries

  • OCD

  • Sprains and breaks

  • Cruciate ligament problems
