According to some veterinarians “rehabilitation through hydrotherapy treatment results in a much quicker recovery for animals and is a significant form of weight loss for those pets that are a little on the podgy side of the scales”.
Also “pets that receive hydrotherapy as part of their rehabilitation program continue to demonstrate accelerated recovery and return to function compared to those receiving a home exercise program alone”
The hydrotherapy underwater treadmill gives the dog a chance to exercise in water, which provides buoyancy and resistance to increase the ease and effectiveness of activity.
Precise control of speed, exercise intensity, water depth and temperature, means exercise can be tailored to suit each individual canine patient regardless of their size or affliction.
