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
  • my rottie ruby did her cruciate and I can't thank the staff at aquavets enough for their wonderful care in getting her back to herself, their kindness and helpfulness was fantastic at such a distressing and worrying time with clear and helpful explanations and advice always given, well done to everyone. Ruby has had so much fun swimming that even though she is now better we continue to go for a weekly swim not only to maintain the benefits but because she thoroughly enjoys herself. I would highly recommend any dog owner to use such an excellent facility and team to care for their dog. –jayne jeune

  • 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
