What is Physical Rehabilitation:

Physical Rehabilitation is especially for canines suffering with mobility issues, pre and post-surgical rehabilitation, injury prevention, obesity and weight loss management, hip dysplasia, increasing body awareness, balance, coordination and geriatric arthritis sufferers.

 

 

 

 

Hydrotherapy Sessions:

 

Our Hydrotherapy sessions are conducted by trained hydrotherapists, who are inside the pool at all times for the duration of the swimming session. The water temperature is controlled to facilitate the relaxation of the joints without being too hot to put stress on your dog’s cardio-respiratory functions. 

After a comprehensive evaluation, and in conjunction with your Vet, our Rehab Professionals will design a customized programme for your pet. This may include modalities (ultrasound, muscle stimulation) , therapeutic exercises, functional exercises and Home Programme . Our dedicated Rehab Team will do their very best to make sure your pet makes the fastest recovery possible, in a relaxed and caring environment.
