ABOUT HYDROTHERAPY

Hydrotherapy is a form of non-weight bearing exercise utilising the therapeutic properties of water. Here at House of Hydro the water is maintained at the optimum temperature (28-30⁰c) and is kept clean and sanitised allowing your dog to swim in the perfect environment.

 

Hydrotherapy can be useful for many reasons, not only helping sick or injured dogs, but also building up confidence and enjoyment in the water. It will help improve a dog's range of motion and allow the strengthening of muscle mass.

 

All cases are treated differently and the individual dog will have a different response. Some will enjoy swimming freely in the water, whilst others may simply enjoy the experience of being held and floating. The warm water in the pool can be a great reliever of pain and inflammation.

INDIVIDUAL

PROGRAMME

Each dog will have an individual programme designed and tailored to their needs; allowing them to improve their range of motion, increase strength, muscle mass, flexibility and increase their cardiovascular fitness. A qualified hydrotherapist will always be in the pool, alongside your dog, who will be fitted with a buoyancy aid until the hydrotherapist feels your dog may no longer require one. At this point in the process with us, your dog will then be fitted with a harness, enabling the hydrotherapist to support your dog when required.
