A: We have a medium-large pool, an aquatic treadmill, shower facilities and weighing scales.
A: Our sessions are £35.
A: Yes, we prefer owners to stay with their dog. We are only allowing one client per patient currently. This may change once Covid-19 restrictions ease further.
A: No! A hydrotherapist will always be in the pool with your dog.
A: All dogs will have a buoyancy aid whilst in the pool and the hoist can be used if there is a reluctance to use the ramps. Owners will also be close by for extra reassurance.
A: No. Towels and drying machines are provided.
A: Hydrotherapy is not about how long but how carefully the hydrotherapist is building and strengthening the soft tissue, overdoing exercise can have the reverse effect.
A: Yes, all patients need a veterinary referral. If you are coming for fitness/confidence swimming, a referral form is preferred, however we will accept an email from your vet to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A: No! You shouldn't feed the dog for 2-3 hours before a session and his exercise will be in the pool - try to make him have a wee and poo though!
A: No. In fact some skin conditions have seen a marked improvement, plus the dog will have a warm shower afterwards to remove any chemical residue.
A: Sorry, no! It's just not fair on other dogs (especially males) that will use the pool afterwards.
A: No, we can treat other small animals.
A: Either by phone, email, or Facebook messenger. If you do call us, please leave a voicemail as we are busy with patients and can't always get to the phone.
