CANINE hydrotherapy is a type of non weight-bearing therapeutic exercise carried out in warm water. It helps dogs recover from surgery or injury and improves conditions such as cruciate ligament damage, hip and elbow dysplasia and arthritis. Research shows that hydrotherapy can dramatically improve recovery time, and in some cases mitigate the need for surgery altogether.
Hydrotherapy can also be used to strengthen muscles, improve fitness and reduce obesity. It is very popular among competitive agility and flyball teams due to the intense conditioning that it can provide.
