Relaxing and therapeutic to the soul

As is the case with humans, water therapy is incredibly beneficial for pet rehabilitation. Our pool provides us with the perfect environment to exercise patients. Due to water resistance, a 15- to 20-minute session is comparable to a fast run outdoors, but without the negative impact on the joints. Pets use a variety of muscle groups in the water, therefore giving them a more well-rounded, complete workout that they would receive from a run outdoors. Additionally, swimming helps to relax tight muscles and release endorphins. Endorphins are a natural pain killer and they stimulate the release of serotonin. Put simply, swimming tends to make pets happy.

 

Water therapy is ideal for pets recovering from surgery, older pets with arthritis or mobility issues, and dogs with most types of paralysis. However, the benefits of full body conditioning through swimming make it a valid therapy for any pet.

 

Swimming is a great form of exercise for every pet, regardless of their age and health status. As a rehabilitation modality, it is particularly beneficial for pets with arthritis, for those who are recovering from orthopedic surgery, pets with neurologic disorders, geriatric pets and overweight pets. However, swimming is also great for young healthy dogs who enjoy a fun way for exercise and conditioning.

 

POST-OP EVALUATION

 

Our rehabilitation specialist will evaluate your dog's post surgical condition, including a thorough analysis of your pet’s gait, limb circumference, range of motion, and balance testing, to prepare a customized treatment plan for your dog. You may ask your vet for a prescription to us and have the chance of coverage under your Pet Insurance provider. Each insurance company is different so call them to ask what your policy is.
