What is Hydrotherapy?
Here at Well Dog Hydrotherapy & Rehabilitation Centre we have a warm large heated pool with plenty of room for the strictest water therapy programs, fun and play. We use the water as a means of supporting dogs in a non-weight bearing environment. This allows for movement that would not normally be possible, or could be difficult, further to injury or general weakness. Simply speaking hydrotherapy is swimming in optimum temperature water with stress free support.
THE BENEFITS OF HYDROTHERAPY
WHO IS HYDROTHERAPY FOR?
Hydrotherapy can help dogs with a wide range of health and mobility issues. Here are just some of the things that hydrotherapy can help with
HOW DOES HYDROTHERAPY WORK?
Our large heated pool offers your dog plenty of room for water therapy programs, fun and play. This can help improve the cardiovascular fitness of your dog and help with weight loss too. The swimming will also relax the blood vessels and maximise the blood supply. In turn this helps increase the circulation which assists healing by carrying more nutrients. The metabolic rate is also increased. This will accelerate the healing of damaged tissue for your dog.
Thank you so much Stacey! She has been a great support and provides useful information regarding conditions! My little pug absolutely loves going for his swim and treats!! All the ladies are super friendly and we wouldnt go anywhere else. 5**
