What is Canine Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy for dogs, or canine hydrotherapy, is a form of exercise with a non-weight bearing basis, helping with rehabilitation processes by using water properties to reduce pressure from their joints. Hydrotherapy can be done either inside a pool or with the use of an underwater treadmill, providing resistance and buoyancy, as well as dilating blood vessels and relaxing their muscles, easing the injuries and aches they may be suffering from.

 

What Are the Benefits of Hydrotherapy for Dogs?

Hydrotherapy may offer many benefits for dogs, and it may also prevent other medical conditions that may come together with ageing and other health conditions. Therefore, to help you to better understand its benefits, we pulled together a list with some of the most common ones. They include:

  • Reduce inflammation and injuries
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Reduce and may even remove pressure from joints
  • Improves motion
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Increase mental stimulation
  • Increase stamina and strength
  • Offer better cardiovascular fitness

The use of the underwater treadmill may also offer many other benefits and suit better the needs of each pet, such as allowing water level adjustment, controlled movements and altering speed, re-educating gait, and decreasing levels of anxiety by allowing them to reach the floor.
