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

  • 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
