Hydrotherapy Pool and Treadmill

Our hydrotherapy pool and underwater treadmill allows dogs to exercise while being supported by water. This is particularly useful for animals recovering from operations or injuries as well as those with orthopaedic, neurological conditions or arthritis. The pool is fitted with jets allowing the team to vary the effort required to swim. 

During hydrotherapy sessions each animal has sole use of the pool and has a member of the team in the water with them at all times. We have a ramp and a hoist to facilitate easy access into the pool and there’s room for clients to stand alongside and encourage their pets. We have life jackets to fit all sizes of dog. The underwater treadmill is suitable for all dogs. The length and intensity of  treadmill sessions is varied in response to each dog's presentation.
