Shower and drying room at Aquavet
We have a walk in shower room that can accommodate all sizes of dog or breed.
All dogs are showered prior to entering the pool. This ensures that the quality of our water remains high as well as warming your dog up before any exercise or treatment.
Following the end of a session, dogs are showered again to remove the chlorinated water from their coats. If your dog has vet recommended shampoo, we are more than happy to use this for your dog. Equally, if you would like your dog to have a shampoo we are happy to oblige.
For the comfort and hygiene of your dog we use a shower room
Our shower facilities are almost floor level allowing easy access for all dogs regardless of mobility.
Dogs are dried with "Aquamats" which absorb water from their coats - more convenient and hygienic than towels. We then use a blaster dryer, this has variable speeds to suit all dogs.

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
Blue as been going to Aquavet for a long time now because he loves going. Blue started at Aquavet when he was referred by a specialist, Blue had three things wrong with him lower spine, hip and cruciate ligament. We were told this could save him having surgery and yes it worked, he is doing very well since his treadmill treatment gets around like a pup (he will be 8 next month) so now he goes because he loves it and its maintenance for him. We thank LISA, AARON her son and the rest of the staff. when Blue gets there he walks straight in to the treadmill sits down and waits for the water to fill, he just loves going. So thanks all at Aquavet you do a great job. Blue says see you in two weeks LISA woof woof. Keep the good work up –PAUL & DOT WARBURTON
