Small dog in hydrotherapy treadmillWhat is Animal Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy means simply ‘water therapy’. There are many benefits to be gained by exercising in water, and it forms an essential part of the rehabilitation program of many of our small animal patients.

Get your pet back on the road faster with hydrotherapy

Pets that receive hydrotherapy as part of their rehabilitation program continue to demonstrate accelerated recovery and return to function compared to those receiving a home exercise program alone. Research shows that underwater treadmill therapy can speed muscle strengthening and improve joint range of motion in dogs following surgery. Benefits can be gained in as little as 1-2 sessions per week.

Regular Reassessments

It’s important that your pet checks in with their physiotherapist regularly. We need to ensure your pet is progressing with their rehabilitation and update their home exercise program as they improve, so as to reach their goals faster. We are also able to identify if they are not progressing as well as we would like, alter their program to suit their rate of recovery, or refer them back to the vet if required.
