About Hydrotherapy and Aquatics
Does your dog have any of these conditions?
…then Canine Water Wellness may be just the place for your dog and you.
As humans, we have known for many years about the health benefits of hydrotherapy (swimming in warm water) for healing and conditioning purposes. For dogs, these same benefits apply.
The warm water both stimulates and relaxes the body. It influences all the systems of the physical body – the musculatory, circulatory, respiratory and skeletal systems, etc.
Equally important, it can also greatly benefit the emotional state of both the dog AND guardian.
Vets now recommend these services because of the many benefits.
What makes hydrotherapy such a fantastic form of therapy and exercise for dogs?
Unlike humans, dogs do not 'commit' to a prescribed exercise program by their veterinarian or other health practioners. They need our help. They will avoid using a compromised part of their body if possible. Swimming requires the functioning of all muscle groups thus providing an all-over, balanced workout.
The water qualities of buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and resistance affect how the body functions and moves.
