Canine Hydrotherapy


Hydrotherapy is the use of an Underwater Treadmill using the buoyancy and healing properties of warm water. We have a brand new state of the art Underwater Treadmill which features a deep water tank, super quick fill and empty, reversible belt, dual entry doors for easy entry and exit, power inclined ramp for greater athletic and aerobic workout, anti slip ramps for easy access.

Used alone or in conjunction with a rehabilitation program, hydrotherapy has so many benefits for our Canine patients:

dogs with sore, arthritic or damaged joints who find it painful to weight bear on land, can build up strength and muscle using the buoyancy of water

  • dogs with sore, arthritic or damaged joints who find it painful to weight bear on land, can build up strength and muscle using the buoyancy of water
  • improved walking / running abilities
  • gait re-education following spinal or neurological injury or disease
  • balance improvement / re-training
  • assists quicker recovery from injury and surgery
  • improved joint range of motion
  • helps maintain mobility in senior dogs, especially those with arthritis or generally slowing down
  • conditioning and endurance for sporting and working dogs
  • improves fitness all round, especially a great option to exercise dogs who are not well socialised so going outside or at dog parks is difficult.
  • weight loss
  • “Pre-hab”: assists getting a dog into better shape pre surgical procedures, helping them become stronger and fitter for the procedure. They also get used to the hydro tank so rehabilitation post surgery goes smoother and more effectively
  • Fun! Last and not least is good, old fashioned fun - we all know how good we feel after exercise to release endorphins and happy hormones.
