Benefits of hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy is a non-weight bearing form of exercise that relieves pain, swelling and stiffness in old or injured limbs. It improves both muscle tone and size and can have a huge impact on the recovery of injuries. As a result the dog will have the benefit of an increased range of movement through joint mobilisation and muscle repair. Regular swimming may also be used for improved cardiovascular fitness and weight loss.

Specific conditions that benefit from hydrotherapy include:

  • Hip / Elbow Dysplasia
  • Cruciate Ligament Injury
  • Spinal Injury
  • Muscle Injury
  • Pre / Post Surgery
  • Obesity
  • General Fitness / Wellbeing
  • Arthritis
