Canine Hydrotherapy is now commonly thought of as an alternative and extension to traditional veterinary medicine. Immediate benefits of hydrotherapy which can be seen from the first immersion in water include; relaxation of muscle tension and spasm, reduction of swelling, increased active range of motion, decreased pain and decreased heart rate at rest. Longer term benefits of hydrotherapy include; increased muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness, improved muscle use, slowing the progression of degenerative diseases and the prevention of secondary complications.
