Our clients say it best
  • I was recommended to go along to Aquavets by my vets after my 11 year old dog Asta was diagnosed with lumba spondylosis. She has had several weekly sessions in the hydro pool and we have seen a great improvement with her movement and she is in a lot less pain.

    The staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I have also used the physiotherapist at the unit and she has been very good with Asta, we have treatments every two weeks and have been shown threatments that we can do ourselves at home. Again this treatment has really helped Asta with her movement and pain.

    I would highly recommend Aquavets and all their treatments. If it was not for their work Asta would have had to have an operation. They are very friendly and make everyone feel so welcome. –Deborah Baggaley

  • In July 2018, our 5 year old Dalmatian, Daisy, collapsed with a ruptured disc in her spine that rendered her paralysed from the waist down. She had surgery and our vets told us she would need regular Physio and Hydrotherapy sessions - something I had no idea even existed for animals!

    After asking for recommendations on a local community page, every single reply was to recommend Aquavets so we contacted them and we were given expert and friendly support and advice immediately, something we were so so grateful for.

    Since then, Daisy has been attending her sessions weekly and she has progressed so much. We are always given support, advice and recommendations of what to do and what kind of things would help her at home and her everyday life, things such as a wheelchair for her (which she absolutely loves!) and even little things like socks and creams and doggy pants to help with sores she gets with dragging herself around.

    Aquavet are by our sides with everything that involves with caring for our dog, they are marvellous. If your pet does ever need to have these kind of services, then I can’t recommend them enough!
