Hydrotherapy

Swim sessions are led by a certified canine hydrotherapist and use the therapeutic properties of heated water to exercise dogs in a weight-free environment.

Suitable to assist in recovery following surgery to assist in building muscle mass, or for long term maintenance for conditions such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, problems with the cruciate ligaments, patella luxation, or other mobility issues.

Sessions are run by Rachel and Alina, registered hydrotherapists with the International Association of Animal Therapists (IAAT) 

Hydrotherapy programs are individualised in order to provide the best level of support and vary according to the dog's physical condition, breed, behaviour and age. For this reason prior to your first booking we are required to contact your registered vet to obtain a brief medical history, and confirm that the dog is in a suitable state of health to undergo hydrotherapy treatment.

Due to the time taken to gain this veterinary consent, there is a minimum of three sessions. 

To begin sessions, add your details below and we'll get in touch with details,
