Hydrotherapy is the use of exercise in water to treat ailments and aid rehabilitation. By harnessing the properties of water we are able to provide a reduced or non-weight bearing environment. This allows an exaggerated range of movement in all joints that is carried out without any strain or pressure, therefore reducing pain. Hydrotherapy increases muscle mass that is unobtainable with land based exercise due to the pain and discomfort it causes.

Hydrotherapy is great for a number of conditions such as:

  • Arthritis

  • Hip and elbow dysplasia

  • Cruciate disease/repairs

  • Patella luxation

  • Spinal injuries

  • Chronic Degenerative Rediculomyelopothy (CDRM)

  • Osteochondrosis Dessicans (OCD)

  • Intervertebral Disc Disease

  • Spondylosis

  • Obesity

  • Strokes

Hydrotherapy can be used pre operatively to gain muscle mass in a non weight bearing environment before surgery, as muscle mass starts to deplete within hours of surgery, which then aids in a faster recovery. It is also used post operatively to regain muscle to support the affected area to increase strength and mobility. Hydrotherapy is also great for general fitness and is used by show dogs and working dogs to keep them at optimum fitness for competitions.

Veterinary Referral

All dogs must have a veterinary referral, which we can arrange for you, before we start hydrotherapy.
