Rebuild your dog’s strength and fitness through non- weight bearing exercise
Similarly, to humans, dogs who have undergone operations or following injury can benefit from a post-operative rehabilitation programme. Following completing the recommended rest period, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy can be some of the most effective and appropriate forms of recovery.
Buoyancy within the water, aids in improving pain relief and minimises weight bearing on joints and muscles.
Following the recommended course of rest and recovery, vets often advise hydrotherapy or physiotherapy treatment as an ongoing/ conservative rehabilitation.
