The benefits of canine hydrotherapy

Welcome to Duchy Canine Hydrotherapy!Hydrotherapy has been used for many years to aid recovery of both orthopaedic and neurological canine conditions.

Here at Duchy Canine Hydrotherapy, our facilities include a pool and use of the underwater treadmill. Both are to seen to have a therapeutic impact on dogs and help treat or manage specific conditions. Exercise that either non-weight bearing or reduced weight bearing helps avoid traumas and strains of exercising on hard ground. Older dogs can benefit from controlled swimming as the soothing effect of the warm water improves circulation and encourages increased mobility of inflamed and arthritic joints. Hydrotherapy is also a great complementary therapy for healthy dogs to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone and general wellbeing.

Following surgery or traumatic injury, our therapies can be used in conjunction with veterinary treatment and hydrotherapy can significantly improve the quality and rate of healing, enabling gradual building up of wasted muscle.

We also welcome swimming just for fun, fitness and mental wellbeing.

What expect at Duchy Canine Hydrotherapy

There is a list on this page of the numerous benefits of hydrotherapy if your dog requires it. It is important to stress that your vet needs to sign the relevant documentation, please download the form here.

Dogs, rather like humans, can develop numerous conditions that affect bones, muscles, tendons, the spine, joints, ligaments and other parts of the body. Once your pooch has been properly assessed, and if hydrotherapy is suitable for him or her, then feel free to get in touch!

Superb Facilities

Our hydrotherapy equipment is state-of-the-art, excellently maintained and support our belief in the holistic approach to supporting and helping your pet. We firmly believe that looking into the dog’s overall health and lifestyle is crucial to helping them.

The other benefit is of course to you, the owner or owners. Pet guardianship is always a lifelong commitment and it can be hard work at times. Like us humans, things can go wrong, accidents happen. You have to be prepared for the unexpected. As many of us accept our dogs as being part of our family unit, if our pooch isn’t well, then we feel ‘under the weather’ ourselves. We just want our pet to feel well again.

The team at Duchy Canine Hydrotherapy are confirmed dog lovers and we are based on an organic working farm in South East Cornwall. Our facilities include hydrotherapy pool, underwater treadmill and jacuzzi spa, all of which offer different therapeutic benefits under one roof. We also have the ability to record and log the therapy sessions in process and ensure that everything is going to plan. 

With the expertise, the facilities and the dedication, Duchy Canine Hydrotherapy can help.
