Orthopaedic/Neurological conditions -

Hydrotherapy has proven benefits for numerous conditions, such as:-


  • Hip and elbow dysplasia

  • Cruciate ligament injuries

  • Slipped disc and disc herniation

  • CDRM

  • Vestibular and wobblers syndrome

  • Spinal problems

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Joint mobility

Pre-operation - to build up muscles before an operation, improve stamina and cardiovascular system to enable a faster recovery time post-op.

Post-operation - To rebuild wasted muscle, which can start within 3 days of the patient being immobilsed, through a non weight bearing low impact exercise.  To aid with pain relief and increase range of movement.  Improve recovery time and also to provide mental stimulation.

Older Dogs - Alleviation of pain in stiff joints.  Increase muscles which support the joints.  Non weight bearing exercise providing mental stimulation.

Obese Dogs - Increase metabolic rate to burn off fat.  As non weight bearing, the stress on joints is relieved and the exercise will increase fitness.  Important to note that a home exercise programme and diet change should also be done alongside hydrotherapy.

Fitness and Fun - Great all round exercise to increase fitness and provide mental stimulation.
