Hydrotherapy is a controlled, non-weight bearing or reduced weight bearing exercise depending on use of pool or treadmill in heated warm water.

The dog or cat must work hard to move through the water which in turn helps to increase muscle condition and cardiovascular fitness, this is perfect if a patient is on restricted exercise on land.

Some exercise may be too challenging for the animal on land but by carrying them out in a reduced weight bearing environment which relieves pressure and load on their joints, reducing pain encourages a better range of movement which in time will improve gait and strengthen muscle condition and core.

Whether you have a pet recovering from injury/surgery, a senior, puppy or show dog, hydrotherapy can help with a whole range of conditions and general fitness.

Canine hydrotherapy is a complimentary therapy that aids your pets in the recovery of post-operative procedures and in the management and maintenance of long-term joint disease, arthritis and obesity. When used after surgery or injury this will aid a speedier recovery.

However, it is best that this is done in a controlled environment at the optimal temperature to ensure the safety and health of your pet under the supervision of a trained professional.

When a dog is swimming through the water or walking against it in the treadmill the hydrostatic pressure of the water puts pressure on the chest making breathing more difficult resulting in making the heart and lungs work harder in order to meet the increased demand for nutrients by all the muscles which are being worked, which leads to an improved respiratory and cardio vascular system.
