Swim for FUN, Fitness and Rehabilitation
*Recognised by Petplan as a Hydrotherapy Provider*
15 metre x 3 meter Heated Lap Pool & Underwater Treadmill
Canine hydrotherapy involves the use of swimming and underwater treadmills to help dogs recover following surgery or injury. It is also very beneficial for pets with more long term mobility problems. Swimming is also perfect for Show Conditioning and for those Sports Athletes needing to fine tune.
This non weight bearing form of exercise will help to improve cardiovascular fitness, increase range of movement, increase muscle strength, improve muscle patterning and recruitment and will also reduce lameness, decrease pain, inflammation and potentially give an earlier return to normal activities and improve quality of life.
Conditions we can treat with hydrotherapy in our facility include:
- Hip and elbow dysplasia
- Cruciate ligament rupture
- Patella luxation
- Degenerative myelopathy (formally known as CDRM)
- Spinal injuries including recovery from fractures and IV disc rupture (commonly known as slipped disc)
- Spondylosis - spinal arthritis
- Mobility problems related to age
- Obesity control
- Overall fitness levels
We'll work with your Veterinarian to give your pet a healthier life.
*All Dogs must be up to date with all vaccinations including kennel cough before swimming with us*
