What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy – literally “water healing” – is a form of low impact physiotherapy and uses water as the modality to help your dog move and exercise its muscles and joints while supporting their body weight. Also with it being less weight bearing it is proven to help build muscle tone, increase cardiac fitness, loosen joints, relax muscles, increase flexibility, and reduce stress, pain, and anxiety.
The therapeutic treatment corresponds perfectly to today’s demands of veterinary medicine.
HydroDobes specialise in the Canine Hydrotherapy Water Treadmill it is a veterinary method of treatment valued for many years in the area of the orthopaedics and neurology as an addition to the classic treatments.
