"House of Hydro has been brought about by a passion and belief in the benefits of Canine Hydrotherapy"

Our purpose built 6m x 4m pool, has integrated ramps, both external and internal, together with a resting platform, all of which are covered with anti-slip matting.  The heated pool creates a relaxing and therapeutic environment for your dog to swim.  This non-weight bearing exercise can be recorded and shared with your vet, if requested. 

Introduction to water is so important. NOT all dogs can swim and NOT all dogs like water or "being thrown in at the deep end". Here at House of Hydro your dog will be introduced to the water at their own pace and encouraged by the therapist to build up their confidence.

Buoyance aids and harnesses are provided and will be fitted correctly by the hydrotherapist.  This ensures your dog’s experience within our centre is a positive and confident one.

We also have platforms in the pool with adjustable leg heights. This allows the therapists to carry out, both manual and aquatic massage treatments for individual conditions. This allows us to strengthen and support muscle groups.

For our strong, fit swimmers, we also have the option to use the jet system (only if hydrotherapist recommends). The jets can be a useful tool in short bursts for stamina building or to encourage dogs to use their hind legs. The Jet system also has a massage feature which allows the therapist to target specific muscle groups where tension or spasms may occur.

Hydrotherapy Pool


Underwater Treadmill  

We house a HydroPhysio Underwater Treadmill. It’s walk through design and 360° viewing angle allows for accurate analysis of limb sequence by our qualified therapists. We are able to control the water level, speed of the belt and duration to target intricate muscle groups and build muscle mass. The low weight bearing environment allows for increased proprioception and gait re-education. The controlled exercise is ideal for patients who have recently undergone surgery or have a neurological condition.

At House of Hydro, we believe in using the properties of water to rehabilitate. Both hydrotherapy in a pool and underwater treadmill utilise this and can achieve targeted results, working together. Therefore, our patients may use both hydrotherapy facilities in their treatment programmes with us, all guided by our qualified therapists.


Pulse Electronic Magnetic Field Therapy 

What is Pulse Electronic Magnetic Field Therapy – PEMF?

Pulsed Magnetic Therapy is an aid to helping the natural repair of injuries, it focuses on bringing balance back to the various frequencies emitted by the body by restoring the depleted levels of energy in injured or unhealthy cells. PEMF helps to establish the optimum conditions for healing to take place.

How can my dog benefit from PEMF?

Magnetic field therapy is a non-invasive form of treatment that may act as a form of pain relief in chronic degenerative conditions, which can speed the patient's recovery from traumatic injuries. Your companion can comfortably lay on the PEMF mat containing four coils at the start of thier hydrotherapy session. This allows the body to start working straight away before pool based therapy begins.


PEMF therapy, through different settings, is most often used to enhance healing from injuries and wounds or to treat chronic conditions, these include but are not limited to...

  • Degenerative joint disease

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Hip/elbow dysplasia

  • Vertebral disease

  • Soft tissue injury including the treatments of tendons, ligaments, muscles and skin.

  • ​Lameness caused by other musculoskeletal or neurological conditions.

PEMF works to...

  • Reduce pain, inflammation and stress on the body

  • Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue damage

  • Relax muscles

  • Balance the immune system

  • Improve circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, stress, blood pressure, nutrient uptake and cellular detoxification and regeneration


House of Hydro is pleased to introduce K-Laser therapy for your pets

Our class IV therapeutic K-laser provides a non-pharmaceutical solution to target the cells that lead to the body’s natural repair mechanisms. K-LASER therapy stimulates the body’s inherent healing mechanisms via a process called photobiomodulation.

How does it work?

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients into damaged tissue. This enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself and reduces pain, inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms and stiffness in a range of conditions that pets may suffer from.

The infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

K-laser is clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation (thus reducing or eliminating the need for non-steroidal pain killers) whilst speeding up healing of damaged tissue.

K-Laser Cube Devices are the most powerful class of laser used for therapeutic use. More power means that higher levels of light can be delivered more quickly, speeding up the overall process.

Benefits for pets

  • Improved pain relief for a wide range of conditions

  • Promotes faster wound healing with stronger, more normal tissue formation with less tension and therefore it reduces or eliminates scar formation

  • Shorter treatment times

  • Can reduce or eliminate the need for medical treatments

  • Helps to reduce the effects of the natural ageing process

I'm absolutely thrilled " KHM

You might be pleased to note that K-laser Class IV therapy is recognised by most animal insurers as a veterinary-prescribed treatment, ensuring that your pet’s laser therapy sessions are covered under the normal terms of their veterinary insurance policy.

If you think your pet could benefit from this treatment, just give us a call for more information.


Please contact us regarding pricing as this will be subject to treatment required.




What does class IV laser therapy mean?

Class IV is the rating of the laser device used to deliever the treatment.

All K-LASER CUBE devices are class IV, this is the most powerful class of laser for therapeutic use. More power means higher doses of light energy can be delivered more quickly. 

Will it hurt my Pet?

Most patients sense a mild, soothing warmth over the treated area. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly after treatment before improvement is experienced.

How long will a treatment session take?

It depends upon the size of the area being treated and the specific condition but typically sessions are 8 minutes in length or less. If your pet has multiple conditions your session may need to be longer.

How many sessions will my pet need?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. Often chronic conditions may require an initial set of 5 to 10 treatments with booster sessions as required to control pain.

How long before the results are felt?

Often improvement can be seen after the first visit, however Class IV Laser Therapy treatment is cumulative in nature so for most conditions patients will require several repeat treatments for greatest benefit.

Can Laser Therapy be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? 

With your veterinarians approval laser therapy can be used in combination with other forms of therapy, prescription drugs or dietary supplements.

Has Laser Therapy been scientifically demonstated to be effective? 

Hundreds of published clinical papers have demonstrated the effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Laser Therapy is one of the fastest growing therapeutic treatments for both humans and animals for a wide range of conditions.
