"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
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
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
