Why Hydrotherapy is good for your dog
Health | Fitness | Rehabilitation
Hydrotherapy for dogs is a truly wonderful form of non weight bearing exercise. It uses almost every muscle in the body while placing no undue pressure on the joints. Our large warm pool allows your dog to exercise and move freely in a safe, clean and controlled environment.
Hydrotherapy is great for general health and fitness, as well as rehabilitation following surgery, and to help maintain mobility in ageing dogs.
It has proven benefits for the following conditions, which may or may not have had surgical interventions:
- Hip and Elbow dysplasia
- Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
- Cruciate ligament rupture
- Patella luxation
- Degenerative myelopathy
- Intervertebral disc rupture
- Spondylosis and Spondylitis
Dogs need a lot of exercise and you don’t have enough hours in the day.
You may be injured but your dog needs exercise.
Your dog need expert help during recovery from surgery or injury
Before your dog comes for its first swim, whether that is for fun and fitness or rehabilitation, we require a completed consent form from your vet (click here to download). This makes sure we have an up to date history so we can provide the best experience for you and your dog.

What Our Clients Say
Thanks for making Meg’s recovery so much fun for both Meg and us! The mention of swimming always got that tail wagging! It is so unfortunate that nature beat us all before Meg reached her goal of walking completely independently. We think of you all as friends now, and hope you regard us in the same way.
It was the vets words that delight me most – due to Kimba’s swimming sessions before the operation. Her muscle tone has improved so much that this would definitely aid her recovery process. With the muscle helping support the knee area.
Having the sessions has made a tremendous difference to Jake he is a lot more free in his limbs and it amazes me how high he can get his back end now!
From being a tired, slightly sad little dog, he has become bright and alert, his ears almost constantly pricked, and he looks and acts as if he were five years younger than his true age.
