Our clients say it best
Aquavets was life changing for Bernard (then aged 11)and for us. Bernard was losing all feeling in his legs and was becoming visibly depressed; being able to swim and chase his ball in the water gave him a new lease of life. He could walk further and was clearly a happier dog. He LOVED going to aquavets and so did I. The staff were so friendly and understanding. Bernard was nearly 13 when he passed away and I am sure the 2 years we attended the hydrotherapy sessions were invaluable in maintaining and improving his quality of life. He had acute spondolosis of the spine and severe arthritis which limited his movements, but in the water he was a puppy just playing and having fun as well as gaining invaluable exercise. I can not recommend this treatment highly enough –Mrs Chilvers
I was recommended to go along to Aquavets by my vets after my 11 year old dog Asta was diagnosed with lumba spondylosis. She has had several weekly sessions in the hydro pool and we have seen a great improvement with her movement and she is in a lot less pain.
The staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I have also used the physiotherapist at the unit and she has been very good with Asta, we have treatments every two weeks and have been shown threatments that we can do ourselves at home. Again this treatment has really helped Asta with her movement and pain.
I would highly recommend Aquavets and all their treatments. If it was not for their work Asta would have had to have an operation. They are very friendly and make everyone feel so welcome. –Deborah Baggaley
