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
  • 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
