Hydrotherapy is a treatment that uses the properties of water to rehabilitate and improve an animal’s function in a heated, sanitized pool.

Dogs that are suffering from a medical condition or have had surgery benefit greatly from hydrotherapy, as it allows the animal to exercise in a non weight bearing environment. This relieves pressure on joints, reducing pain and encouraging movement.   Hydrotherapy has been used for thousands of years to exercise people, horses & more recently dogs, in a weight free environment. Virtually impact free, swimming in clean, warm water in a controlled environment exercises virtually every muscle in the body without the constant jarring to joints caused when walking & running. For this reason alone swimming is ideal exercise for lame, injured, arthritic & overweight dogs, pre & post operative dogs, working & show dogs to increase overall fitness & well being. The pool & hot spa are fully heated, filtered & checked daily to the CHA Standards to ensure the optimum in temperature & hygiene.
