"Morse - our youngest ever swimmer"

fun swim

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
  • bracken was only a few months old when his hip problem was diagnoised.He had stopped walking at times could not stand without help.Since having hydro at aquavet he walks runs on the beach playing ball swims in the sea. He does not need any pain relief his life is so much better. He is now a happy one year old Boarder Collie –Casterton

  • 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
