Why Hydrotherapy?

What results can or might your pet get

Why Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy can range from simply floating in the water or a gentle swim to relieve inflammation and pain or more vigorous exercise to increase use of limbs, muscle tone and bulk or to strengthen the support for joints.

If your dog has suffered an injury, has an orthopedic condition or is recovering from surgery, treatment in this non weight bearing or partially weight bearing environment, can assist recovery. Treatment can be less painful in water and improves range of movement, which can be difficult on land.

Hydrotherapy promotes physical well-being and can benefit dogs with numerous conditions. It can also be used for improving or maintaining fitness, weight loss or simply just for fun in a safe environment.
