Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy allows movement of almost every muscle without causing concussive stress on the joints. Due to the water resistance, muscles have to work notably harder which improves strength and stamina whilst working the cardiovascular system. The water is heated to 29°C, which helps with relaxation and assists blood flow to the muscles and joints, and prevents cramping.

Your pets treatment program might require the pool or underwater treadmill therapy or both of them.
