"Morse - our youngest ever swimmer"
The first year of a dog's life is without doubt the most important year of it's life. Ensuring the correct training, the right eating habits, the right toilet habits and of course - an increased socialising routine.
What tens to goes unnoticed are those growing limbs and underdeveloped joints. Hydrotherapy is the perfect alternative to repetitive exercise.
Due to the pool being non-weight bearing, there is no pressure or force being put through the joints and the swimming will result in an increased muscle growth which will support and maintain the growth of your puppy.

Our clients say it best
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
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
