Hydrotherapy is ideal for managing arthritis as the warm water will support your pet and provide a therapeutic experience, whilst giving them an all-over body workout.
Hydrotherapy is an excellent option for overweight dogs and cats as the warm water supports the joints and movements, which is ideal if your pet is struggling due to those extra pounds, Coupled with a good nutrition and varied exercise plan, swimming and/or walking on the water treadmill can really help to kickstart your pet’s weight loss.
You may want to book a free weight & diet consultation with our nursing team to understand how much weight your pet needs to lose to improve their health and to help you monitor their progress.
Please note, weight loss swims are classed as rehabilitative hydrotherapy and require a signed vet referral form (see below). In some cases, if your pet is suffering with additional health issues, they may require a physio assessment before undergoing hydrotherapy treatment. Speak to our team for more info.
