  • Our dog, Sadie, a chunky 35k Akita cross, first went to Aquavet after a nasty fall from a wall caused her pre-existing arthritis to take a steep dive. She was about 10 at the time and her back legs were badly affected.

    She started with weekly swims and the occasional physio session. After six months her gait had improved considerably and she settled into a swim once a month, and a physio session two weeks after a swim. This served her very well until she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. After an operation to remove the growths she continued with increased physio sessions for a period until she could resume swimming again. This continued until the cancer returned and she became too unwell for any treatment.

    In all, we came to Aquavet for about 26 months and during this period her mobility was maintained so that she could enjoy walks in the park and play in the house. I found all the staff at Aquavet to be fantastic. Lisa was sympathetic to the need to keep Sadie separate from other dogs when we arrived/left the premises (Sadie was not great with other dogs) and the care and attention she received from Lisa, Nicole and Becky was lovely.

    Sadie was so relaxed during her physio sessions with Sarah that she often fell asleep on the platform. In the end it was cancer that caused her death but I doubt her last years would have been as enjoyable for her if she had not attended for the treatments.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Aquavet to others - in fact I already have. Aftercare - in terms of a Christmas card in remembrance was a lovely touch. Best wishes to the team.
