What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a unique service used in rehabilitation and physical therapy for your pet. While it is commonly used for dogs, your cat can also benefit from it. The therapy uses a treadmill underwater, which can help pets recover from a variety of conditions.

Can Any Dog Have Hydrotherapy?

Most dogs can greatly benefit from hydrotherapy. Some dogs can use it to strengthen their muscles if they are
competition dogs without having the negative effects of running or exercising on solid ground. Other dogs that might
not have the ability to go through regular exercise often due to an injury can be helped by this therapy.
