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

     –Bev Senior

  • 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
