What is Hydrotherapy?

Canine hydrotherapy uses the natural elements of water, providing a low impact program of treatment specifically for pet’s muscles, joints and general wellbeing. Our heated pool serves to massage and promotes deep tissue repair. Hydrotherapy can also assist with behavioural issues channeling negative energy into a positive release. Many conditions can benefit but here are our most common:

  • Orthopaedic conditions (inc. dysplasia)
  • Neurological conditions
  • Surgical recovery
  • Lameness
  • Puppy water introduction
  • Weight loss
  • Degenerative conditions

Our dogs have their own programme tailored to their individual needs. This programme is adapted as they progress through their journey and build greater strength. Here at Genesis we welcome all dogs with a variety of requirements and we absolutely love working alongside owners to the end results. Many of our dogs continue with us after therapy to keep up some regular doggy exercise.

  • Relieves stiffness and swelling
  • Relieves pain
  • Improves muscle strength
  • Increases cardiovascular fitness
  • Improves joint range of motion
  • Improves wellbeing
  • Allows puppies to exercise without causing harm
The warmth of the water relieves pain and increases blood flow around the body allowing the dog to move freely in the water.
Hydrostatic pressure happens when a dogs body is immersed in water, this reduces swelling around the joints.
