Here at Healthy Hounds we specialise in Canine Hydrotherapy and Therapeutic Canine Massage
Canine Massage is a remedial therapy that helps to resolve muscular and soft tissue injures removing debilitating knots or trigger points and helps rehabilitate injuries by breaking down scar tissue caused by daily living actives.
Massage also helps to support orthopaedic conditions such as Arthritis, Hip and Elbow Dysplasia and Cruciate Ligament Injuries it is also a form of natural pain relief.
Canine hydrotherapy is a water based exercise that is low impact and non-weight bearing, making it ideal for pets that have undergone intensive surgery.
Swimming is a great way to exercise muscles and remove the stresses and strains placed on limbs and tendons through land based exercise. Hydrotherapy can be used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, orthopedic conditions, neurological conditions, muscle, ligament and other soft tissue injuries. It can also help with general convalescence and fitness, but a lot of owners bring their dog purely because they love to swim with us.
Our Hydrotherapy Pool
Our indoor pool is 15ft x 7ft and 4ft deep and heated to a warm 29 -30 Celsius, just right for stimulating the flow of blood to the muscles.
The pool has under water jets to create an adjustable current to swim against and a viewing window set in the pool so you can also see the movement of your dog in the pool.
We offer assisted swims at no extra charge, meaning one of our trained hydrotherapists accompanies your dog into the water. This has several benefits, from allowing us to ensure your dog is using all four legs correctly and evenly whilst also having a calming, reassuring and comforting effect on your dog.
