Testimonials

Benji at Rose Tree Farm

"Benji has been visiting Ellie for hydrotherapy after a spinal injury. Since starting the treatment the difference in him is amazing! He has regained so much strength and is able to hold himself up with a great posture. We highly recommend Ellie, she is brilliant!"

Dachshund following hydrotherapy

"Our Dachshund is attending hydrotherapy currently and we couldn’t be happier with how knowledgeable, skilled and not to mention friendly Ellis is! She has taken her time to allow our dog to get used to her surroundings and has very competently answered all questions we have had along the way."

British Bulldog Archie at Rose Tree Farm near Warrington

"My British Bulldog Archie went to Ellie for hydrotherapy treatment after an operation for a luxating patella. After a nervous start he has been made to feel so comfortable by Ellie that he actually enjoyed it, so much so that after he was back to full fitness we continued to see Ellie once a week just for fitness. Archie has just had the same op on his other back leg and will now need hydro for that. I would not even consider taking him anywhere else! "

Maximus following hydrotherapy

"Maximus dropped over 4kg when suffering from an immune disorder last year. The muscle wastage was severe - stopped him from being able to jump in the car boot, walk up the stairs or get on the couch. Ellie and the hydrotherapy was amazing and he is back to his old self now, as clumsy and silly as ever. Ellie’s patience has been incredible and we can’t thank her enough."

Labrador Poppy with towel at hydrotherapy treatment near Widnes

"Ellie is marvellous! She has helped me so much with my Labrador Poppy, who has stiff joints. Ellie does hydro with Poppy and swims. I also have another lab, Flora who I am starting to take for Fitness Swims. Ellie is very professional and knows exactly what the pet needs. I cannot recommend Ellie highly enough!"

Buddy at Rose Tree Farm

"I've been taking Buddy to Rose Tree Farm Hydrotherapy for several weeks following his arthritis diagnosis. He lost his back leg as a puppy so has grown up putting extra stress on his remaining back leg and this has resulted in deterioration of the joint. We've seen a marked improvement in his mobility and he rarely uses his wheels now or needs any analgesia. We'll continue with the hydrotherapy indefinitely as he has become stronger, happier and his joint is more stable."
