The Hydrotherapy Pool
Hydro Paws Ltd operates a 5.1mL x 3mW x 1.3mD exercise pool which is surrounded by a raised platform.
The pool is fitted with anti-swim jets at both ends to create a flow of water and increase resistance for the dogs to swim against if required.
The water is chemically treated and filtered to maintain the highest standards of hygiene, It is tested at least 3 times a day to ensure the chemical and PH balance are maintained at the correct levels and microbiologically tested monthly. All test results are recorded.
The water is heated to an optimal temperature range of 27-30°C.
All animals will be fitted with a life jacket/buoyancy aid prior to entering the pool area for their safety.
Most animals will enter and exit the pool via an external ramp, animals that are unable to enter the pool of their own accord may be lifted in with the owners consent.
Hydro Physio Underwater Treadmill
Hydro Paws Ltd is
pleased to announce the addition of an underwater treadmill to our list of
This is the latest
state of the art equipment and provides an ideal environment for reduced weight
The underwater treadmill provides a more controlled
environment which is ideally suited to certain medical or surgical conditions
or dogs that aren’t confident swimmers and may find the pool a little daunting.
treadmill provides an opportunity to analyse your pets gait and has enough room
to allow a hydrotherapist in with your pet to correct their gait if required.
The speed of the treadmill and water level can be adjusted for each individual
to help achieve better results.
In many cases a
combination of pool and underwater treadmill can be beneficial to our pet in
order to build better muscle mass and range of motion.
At the end of the session all animals will receive a warm water rinse and be towel dried for their comfort.
