Our facilities boast a fantastic hydrotherapy set up complete with underwater treadmill. Hydrotherapy has a huge range of uses and forms part of our post-operative care plans for many pets who have undergone surgery. After surgical correction to a bone or a joint, recovery can be dramatically improved by strengthening the supporting muscles, taking the strain off the surgical repair. In a similar manner, we use hydrotherapy to rehabilitate patients with muscle injuries. It is also common to see many of our ‘golden-oldie’ patients enjoying some relief from arthritic joints on our water treadmill.
Whatever the reason for your pet’s visit to our hydrotherapy facilities, our caring and highly trained team will tailor treatment to meet their specific needs, taking a whole-body view to recovery. The number of visits required will vary depending on our shared goal for your pet. Acute injuries might require a shorter treatment programme, whilst a longer, less intensive plan may be better suited to pets with chronic problems. If you think your pet could benefit from hydrotherapy, please ask one of our friendly team for more information.
