What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, uses water exercises to aid in your pet’s recovery from surgery or an injury. These exercises are guided by a trained member of our team to ensure their effectiveness and safety.

Here are some notable features of hydrotherapy for pets:

  • Warm Water Comfort: Your pet is gently immersed in a warm water pool, which eases muscle tension and soothes aching joints.
  • Low-Impact Exercise: Under the guidance of our expert team, your pet performs controlled movements in the water, which reduces the strain on their joints.
  • Buoyant Support: Water's buoyancy reduces the weight-bearing load on your pet's limbs, making it easier for them to move and exercise.
  • Enhanced Circulation: Hydrotherapy improves blood circulation, promoting faster healing and reducing inflammation.
