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

  • Blue as been going to Aquavet for a long time now because he loves going. Blue started at Aquavet when he was referred by a specialist, Blue had three things wrong with him lower spine, hip and cruciate ligament. We were told this could save him having surgery and yes it worked, he is doing very well since his treadmill treatment gets around like a pup (he will be 8 next month) so now he goes because he loves it and its maintenance for him. We thank LISA, AARON her son and the rest of the staff. when Blue gets there he walks straight in to the treadmill sits down and waits for the water to fill, he just loves going. So thanks all at Aquavet you do a great job. Blue says see you in two weeks LISA woof woof. Keep the good work up –PAUL & DOT WARBURTON
