Our clients say it best
We brought Buster our 8 yr old Shih Tsu to Aquavets due to his bad arthritis he had become very quiet, overweight and was only walking a few yards each walk. Following ten swimming and three physio sessions, we have a happy, slim and energetic dog again. Instead of thinking we were losing him shortly we are now looking forward to a long future with our very loved family member. Thank you to Abbey Vets for referring us. Marion Davis –Marion Davis
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
