What is Hydrotherapy

Canine Hydrotherapy Ltd welcomes any dog that would like to swim whether it is for recuperation from injuries and operations, on an exercise programme to lose weight or improve their cardio vascular fitness or purely to swim for leisure and enjoyment.

Canine Hydrotherapy is a weightless form of exercise and recuperation from injuries in a controlled environment with zero impact on your dog’s joints and muscles. It is a highly intensive form of exercise, 5 minutes swimming in the hydrotherapy pool is the equivalent of your dog walking 5 miles. Hydrotherapy benefits dogs with injuries that restrict movement, dogs recovering from operations, overweight dogs and dogs that want to swim for fitness and leisure.

Controlled swimming at a maintained temperature under supervision will improve a dogs range of muscle movement, reduce weight* and greatly improve their cardio vascular system. Swimming at temperatures between 26 and 28 degrees improves the dog’s blood circulation, nourishing cells and tissues, relieving pain and repairing and maintaining muscles.
