Canine Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy uses exercise in warm water to improve the quality and healing of a variety of different conditions. Hydrotherapy supports the dogs body allowing weightless activity, engaging full movement.

Hydrotherapy is a highly intensive and focussed activity, which achieves excellent results especially when used in conjunction with land based physiotherapy.

Incredible benefits for dogs of all ages! Hydrotherapy can also be used for fun, fitness and weight loss. We are CHA registered which means you can claim through your pet insurance!
