Hydrotherapy Rehab


Hydrotherapy uses the buoyancy of water to allow dogs to walk with a more normal gate while taking the stress off their joints.  Because the water helps with weight bearing, it allows the dog to move more freely with less stress and pain.


Dogs of all sizes and physical levels can benefit from hydrotherapy.  Hydrotherapy is often used for dogs that are recovering from an injury or surgery or in lieu of surgery.  It can also benefit older dogs that have arthritis or have just slowed down and dogs that just need more physical exercise.


We use a custom designed underwater treadmill to perform Hydrotherapy for dogs.  The dogs can easily walk into the treadmill and the water fills from the ground up.  We can raise and lower the treadmill to accommodate dogs of all sizes.  The water is temperature controlled and treated & filtered.
