What is  Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a way to exercise your dog and build muscle with reduced weight bearing to make exercise more comfortable. This can be great to assist agility and sporting dogs to reaching their peak fitness.


Swimming can also encourage healing which, alongside veterinary treatment, can decrease recovery time and support your dog returning to full fitness post-op. It can also be a great support and therapy for conservative treatment patients or dogs with degenerative illnesses. 


Some of the problems hydro can help with are osteoarthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, patella luxation, cruciate damage, degenerative disc disease and many, many more.


Not only can hydro help sick or injured dogs but swimming in a controlled environment can also help build confidence and enjoyment in the water.
