What is hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy for canines is a form of therapeutic exercise carried out in warm water. We offer a hydrotherapy pool that will allow the buoyancy and resistance to improve physiological function. The effects of water allow re-mobilization of joints which may not be possible when weight bearing out of water. This form of therapy is excellent for dogs that have arthritic pain, weakness, or neurological disabilities or dogs that just love water and/or need a challenge in muscle strengthening and weight loss. Hydrotherapy can also increase cardiovascular training, reduce edema, swelling and discomfort.
