A dog’s muscles benefit from the warming effects of the heated pool. When a congenital condition is identified in a puppy, and surgery is not possible until the animal is physically mature, hydrotherapy can be employed to maintain a dog’s condition. Whilst swimming endorphins are stimulated which help to control pain and relieve tension.

Sam had really slowed down, his arthritis really seemed to be taking its toll. After just 1 swim it was like having a puppy back, Sam has regained his Labrador bounce, on sunday morning he was stood waiting for me to feed him, his tail has not stopped wagging!
