Hot Dogs!

Hot Dogs!

Our water based rehabilitation is helping dogs to exercise in this hot weather. Especially when it comes to those that are arthritic and perhaps over weight.

The benefits of hydrotherapy:

  • Increases muscle strength and mass
  • Increases cardiovascular fitness
  • Increases range of movement
  • Reduces muscle spasm

  • Reduced weight bearing allows exercise to begin earlier as there is less muscle activation and reduced load
  • Greater limb support, reducing likelihood of injury to tendons, muscles and ligaments
  • Can make movement easier due to buoyancy
  • Water provides resistance and drag to allow strengthening
  • Prevents muscle atrophy
  • Reduces oedema
  • Provides relaxation
  • Reduces joint pains
  • Increases circulation and assists healing
