What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy also known as “water healing” treatment refers to the use of water aiding in exercises that rehabilitate post-operative, pre-operative as well as geriatric conditions that slowly start to creep up to your animal and affect their general wellbeing…The properties of water help reduce pressure from joints and encourage greater range of motion which in turn helps to rebuild muscle mass, improve blood circulation, promote cardiovascular output and improve stamina.

Water Therapy can also be beneficial in treating:

•     Neurological problems, spinal disorders

•     ACL -The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the key ligaments that help stabilize your knee joint

•     Other orthopedic injuries or conditions

•     Weight loss

•     Metabolic conditions like Cushing’s and diabetes that can cause muscles to atrophy - Poodle, Dachshund, Boston Terrier, Boxer, and Beagle
