Beeley works hard

Beeley is a welcome visitor. He is a Leonburger. As you can see from this picture, he is a big lad.


The Leonberger is a giant dog breed. The breed’s name derives from the city of Leonberg in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. According to legend, the Leonberger was ostensibly bred as a ‘symbolic dog’ that would mimic the lion in the town crest.

A fantastic moon


I know that this is not strictly a canine item, but this moon setting over the practice this morning was stunning.

Great to see Amber in such good shape

For those of you with long memories, you may remember Amber. She is a longstanding paient here at Canine Physio-Hydro Centre who, as you can see, remains active and well despite her arthritis.

We have some new equipment

water-treadmillWe are pleased to be able to offer a new water treadmill with incline as part of our Hydro Physiotherapy service. The picture to the left shows our new piece of equipment actually being made. (It’s quite a size as you can judge. Note the man in the photo for scale!)

Our new water treadmill allows us to offer a more comprehensive range of treatments. We see this as the final peice of the puzzle that includes physiotherapy, home exercise plans, hydrotherapy and now water treadmill rehabilitation programmes.  We can confidently say that we are the best equipped practice in the area.

Sidney shows his skills

We’re just tinkering with the website and don’t want to lose this fabulous picture of Sidney showing off his flexibility exercises.

Hope you like this picture as much as we do.

Despite arthritis, Pru swims for Newton


“Pru is 13 years old, going on 14, and has been enjoying hydrotherapy for nearly two years which has been of great benefit to her as she had developed an arthritic back leg.

She is still walking approximately 1 1/2 miles per morning with a quick sprint up the fields in the afternoon.  Prior to her regular swims, stairs were becoming somewhat difficult for her but there has been considerable improvement and the climb she insists on doing appears much easier for her.

Pru recommends hydrotherapy to any of her doggie friends who are experiencing similar problems and loves to swim.”
