Hydrotherapy for pets in Kent
Hydrotherapy involves the therapeutic use of water in the treatment of a range of conditions, from injury rehab to weight loss, as well as being a great way of keeping your pet fit and having fun!
The warmth of the water can assist with pain relief and reduce muscle spasms, while the support provided by the water allows movement and exercise to take place with reduced pressure on joints – ideal for pets recovering from surgery or injury, as well as for general weight maintenance.
We find that hydrotherapy can produce fantastic results in dogs of all sizes and breeds, as well as with some cats, although this may depend on your cat’s temperament.
