Hydrotherapy

Our hydrotherapy pool was purpose built in 2007 and we are qualified to treat dogs with the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
  • Relief of Pain, Swelling and Stiffness
  • Spinal Injuries
  • Cruciate Ligament Problems
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
  • Chronic Degenerative Radiculomyelopthy (CDRM)
  • Weight Control
  • Limb Amputation
  • Good conditioning for agility, working and racing dogs

We work closely with local veterinary surgeries which may refer you to us – or we often deal with you the owner directly, however in some cases may need to contact your vet for detailed information regarding your dog’s treatment.

At the start of every session we undertake a health check, in which we check your dog’s heart rate and general well-being. The dog is then fitted with either a life-jacket or harness. During their swim your dog will be brought out on several occasions for a break.

On every visit the amount of swimming time that your dog completes will be increased in line with their increased fitness capabilities.

After the session each dog is bathed down and completely dried before they are given a massage to relax their muscles.

Recognised by most pet insurance companies.
