Our 4 metre by 2.5 metre pool is suitable for all breeds, shape and sizes of dog.
The pool is attended by a hydrotherapist at all times, mostly in the pool along with the dog, so that the dog too gets the full
benefit from treatment.
We also offer access to a fully qualified animal physiotherapist and a qualified myotherapist.
Sessions last 30 minutes with the maximum time the dog spends in the water being 20 minutes. However, when first
starting out with hydrotherapy your dog could only be in the water as little as 4-5 minutes. As with every as of exercise it is important to gradually build up and increase the time they spend in the water up to the maximum of 20 minutes.
There are drying facilities on site but we do encourage owners to bring their own towels.
Please also be aware you will probably get wet!!
The centre is open Mon-Sat by appointment only from 8.30 till 5.30 Late bookings and Sundays are available on request.
Owners may swim with their dogs at their own risk
