Our hydrotherapy pool and underwater treadmill allows dogs and cats 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.

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. The pool is fitted with jets allowing the team to vary the effort required to swim. 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.
