Hydrotherapy is a fantastic all round therapy for your dog. Water increases resistance to movement, a five minute swim is approximately equivalent to a five mile run.
Buoyancy in water supports weight bearing and reduces stress on the joints, encouraging enhanced movement in a safe exercise environment.
Controlled swimming can target specific areas whilst working the entire body. During rest periods Aquatic massage helps blood flow around the body reducing inflammation and balance work strengthens back and core muscles helping overall strength and posture.
Hydrotherapy can assist with:
*Lameness *Obesity *Arthritis *Spinal issues
*Mobility Problems *Post & Pre-Operative Care * As part of Conservative Management
Ideal, within a fitness program, for dogs involved in Flyball, Showing, Agility, Racing or Field Sports. It will strengthen gait pattern and muscle tone without tiring or stressing joints.
Its also great for young dogs to strengthen joints and gain water confidence.
