Aquatic therapy is an extremely effective rehabilitation method.
Studies have shown that aquatic therapy is able to reduce between
50 and 60 percent the recovery time from surgery or injury.
Swimming is an ideal form of rehabilitation
for dogs recovering from surgery or injury.
It is also beneficial to dogs with joint-related problems. Swimming regularly helps to tone muscles, build stamina and improve range of motion. We recommend swimming for dogs because it is a low impact, non-weight bearing workout. Swimming incorporates stretching, aerobics and strength training without the strain experienced on land. The fact is that swimming is relaxing and fun. You will notice a marked improvement in your dog's spirit as well as the therapeutic benefits.
Swim sessions are 1/2-hour long, this includes resting and drying time. All sessions are by appointment only. Dogs are accompanied in the pool by a swim assistant for guidance, reassurance and safety. Special attention is given to ensure that dogs do not become fatigued. A resting bench is used as necessary throughout the swim session.
Treadmill sessions are usually 15 minutes, with increments of 5 depending on the dogs health and need. We encourage parents to be present to cheer for their pets.
