Hydrotherapy - Underwater Treadmill 

"Bramble on her weekly underwater Treadmill session"

Bramble on weekly treadmill treatment

Holding 80% of your dogs body weight, the Underwater Treadmill provides a much more controlled style of exercise / rehabilitation. The warm water which rises to your dogs shoulders provides buoyancy to support the limbs allowing  movement in a controlled manner.

The 28-30° degree water temperature ensures there is a good supply of blood to the major extremities which provides optimal results and rehabilitation, preventing a condition from deteriorating.

Our clients say it best
  • I have been taking my dog, Molly, to Aquavet for over 3 years now... Her prognosis wasn't good but regular treadmill sessions have given her a quality of life we couldn't have hoped for. She can still climb stairs and walk for an hour in the park...thank you for all your help and support. –Liz France White

  • 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
