Hydrotherapy - Underwater Aquatic Treadmill
"Bramble on her weekly underwater Treadmill session"
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 a hydrostatic pressure to the limbs which supports all 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 worsening.

Our clients say it best
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!–Kelly Sue Drayton
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!
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
