Our clients say it best
  • In January this year we received the devastating news that our 9month old Cavalier King Charles had severe hip dysplasia.

    A local search found that Aquavet was our nearest hydrotherapy centre and a phone call later we were booked in to start with hydrotherapy sessions. I write this testimonial several months on and we cannot thank Lisa, Nicole, Becky and all the team enough for their support, understanding and encouragement. Along with physio from Sarah we now have a stronger, fitter and healthier dog well placed to fight her condition.


    Daisy loves her trips to see Lisa and the team and it is now part of our regular routine, instead of a long walk in the fields, we have a trip to Aquavet for a swim! Thank you Lisa for all that you do, it really does make a difference x

  • In July 2018, our 5 year old Dalmatian, Daisy, collapsed with a ruptured disc in her spine that rendered her paralysed from the waist down. She had surgery and our vets told us she would need regular Physio and Hydrotherapy sessions - something I had no idea even existed for animals!

    After asking for recommendations on a local community page, every single reply was to recommend Aquavets so we contacted them and we were given expert and friendly support and advice immediately, something we were so so grateful for.

    Since then, Daisy has been attending her sessions weekly and she has progressed so much. We are always given support, advice and recommendations of what to do and what kind of things would help her at home and her everyday life, things such as a wheelchair for her (which she absolutely loves!) and even little things like socks and creams and doggy pants to help with sores she gets with dragging herself around.

    Aquavet are by our sides with everything that involves with caring for our dog, they are marvellous. If your pet does ever need to have these kind of services, then I can’t recommend them enough!
