Hydrotherapy

This is the practice of using the buoyant properties of water to reduce body weight pressure on the joints. The resistance of water also encourages fat metabolism, muscle strengthening, and overall stamina. 

It is a great option for animal athletes, pre-operative and post-operative pets, poor surgical candidates, those with severe osteoarthritis or nerve dysfunction, and overweight pets who need an efficient weight-loss solution. 

The exercise is low risk, however some things that must be considered are body condition, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and pets who dislike water activities.

*Because each pet responds differently to treatment, we will determine suitability at your first consultation.
