Warm Water Hydrotherapy
We provide warm water hydrotherapy for dogs in our beautiful spa-like rehab facility. Our pool is chemical-free using a state of the art European biofiltration system for sanitation. The in-ground pool features a stone beach approach for ease of entrance to the pool. A two-foot wide walkway the entire inside perimeter of the pool provides sixty-six feet of walking surface. This allows the benefits of walking against resistance with buoyancy, along with the positive effects of hydrostatic pressure on inflamed joints.
The variation of height and the transitions of the walking surfaces stimulates proprioception, as well as, assists in gait re-education. Our pool also allows for swimming with or without jet resistance.
