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
  • After losing my 9 year old old English sheepdog this week to cancer I felt appropriate that I thank the wonderful staff at Aquavet for their care and expertise. I decided to take Missie to Aquavet after a referral from her vets after trying to maintain the pain in her arthritis. This is a condition that missie has endured even through her young years due to unnecessary docking. We had a session every fortnight for 3 years. The improvement was steady but certainly noticed ! Missie was not a confident dog in water but soon got to know and like the staff and dare I say even got to like her visits ! The staff made our trips good fun , informative and run perfectly ! I would 100% recommend the treatment and Aquavet. Thank you Aquavet. Will miss our sessions. –Rebecca Gunner
