THE BENEFITS OF HYDROTHERAPY
Extensive work in human physiotherapy has demonstrated that a suitably monitored course of hydrotherapy acts by encouraging a full range of joint motion in reduced weight bearing conditions, therefore improving muscle tone & promoting tissue repair, without imposing undue stress on damaged tissues. Controlled swimming helps to improve cardiovascular stamina, muscle tone, range of movement & is particularly helpful in aiding recovery from injury or surgery whilst also improving general fitness, especially in the management of obesity. Muscle wastage begins within 3 days of any immobilisation so to prevent further weakness or injury it is important to rebuild, through safe exercise, any muscles that have deteriorated. It is better to treat dogs in heated water since cold water causes constriction of the blood vessels near the skin to the superficial muscles (just under the skin) which restricts the flow of blood making the muscles less efficient.
Please ensure your dog has not eaten for at least 2 hours before & at least 2 hours after sessions. Please take this into consideration if your dog requires food with medication. Please also remember this session will impact your dogs energy levels for the day so take this into consideration with additional exercise..Please toilet your dog before the session. If your dog toilets in the pool this can cause a delay to other swim sessions. Swim times depends on your dogs ability, condition & confidence. Your dog will not be in the pool for the whole session. If you arrive late the session will be shortened & the price will not be reduced as you have booked that specified slot. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Noise must be kept to a minimum & running around or distraction of dogs is not permitted. Please bear in mind other dogs may be in the vicinity & may not be as friendly as yours. We can not be held responsible for injuries which occur if our policy is not followed.
