One of the multiple modalities in canine rehabilitation to help dogs heal is hydrotherapy. Pups can suffer through all types of conditions that are either due to overexertion, injuries, genetics, aging, or diet.
Even young dogs can develop issues that require particular steps for adequate treatment and pain relief. Hydrotherapy for dogs can help alleviate some of the pain from chronic conditions and injuries. If your furry friend suffers from mobility problems, Tampa Bay K9 Rehabilitation Center provides hydrotherapy for dogs to get your pal moving again. If you live in the St. Petersburg and Tamp Bay area, you have a place you can bring your dog for healing.
Tampa Bay K9 Rehabilitation Center is here to help rehabilitate your dog in a comfortable and safe environment. Our trained professionals and advanced equipment will create a soothing environment for your pup during their recovery.
Hydrotherapy allows your dog to heal in a comforting environment. Water exercises will help strengthen muscle tone while reducing the stress on your dog’s joints. Furthermore, hydrotherapy will increase mobility and activity, so you can get your dog feeling back to normal as soon as possible.
Remember, it’s essential to leave this therapy to the professionals. Allowing your dog to swim in your pool may do more harm than good following surgery, and you may risk infection by allowing them in water before sutures are removed.

In addition, if your dog just needs to lose some weight, they will significantly benefit from this form of therapy. Hydrotherapy will promote weight loss through slow and easy exercises and also help digestive health and overall fitness.
