Hydrotherapy

Amber was born with severe hip dysplasia. The muscles in her hind quarters, which have developed from the treatment, are now strong enough to support her in everything she does. – chasing balls, sticks and following trails.

Pamela has been involved in hydrotherapy for over 10 years.  During that time she has gained a wide range of experience in the treatment of many conditions and carried out research of her own involving hydrotherapy as part of her Master’s Degree.

Hydrotherapy for dogs is an invaluable way of providing therapeutic exercise when land based exercise is restricted or not appropriate. We are fortunate to be able to offer both hydro pool and underwater treadmill treatments. Both treatments are excellent for gentle, controlled rehabilitation.

Examples include:-

Post operative following surgery such as cruciate repair or hip replacement

Rehabilitation following spinal surgery

Can also be part of a fitness programme for agility dogs

Non jarring exercise for dogs with arthritic joints

Appropriate exercise for overweight dogs with regular weight monitoring

Gentle water-based exercise for Senior Citizens

A note about our pool

Pamela designed the hydro-pool and commissioned its construction, based on years of hands-on experience. It is the only example of this design in the country.
