Initial Appointment

(Approximate Duration 45 mins to 1 hour)

Your initial assessment is carried out by a fully qualified veterinary physiotherapist or hydrotherapist. This includes a thorough assessment including in-depth history, gait analysis, palpation and a detailed musculoskeletal evaluation. It will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your animal’s diet, exercise levels and goals. You will leave with an individually tailored treatment programme, home management programme and any exercises that may be helpful to compliment your animal’s rehabilitation. Most importantly we will bond with your dog and ensure they feel comfortable in their rehabilitative environment to ensure that we achieve amazing results and positive outcomes.

Follow up Appointment

(Approximate Duration 30 mins)

In most cases your pet will require a number of follow up appointments. Each session will be carried out by one of our highly trained and qualified hydrotherapists and/or veterinary physiotherapists. At each session we monitor and record your dog’s progress, ensuring the treatment is effective and results are achieved.

What should I expect

All dogs must be fully vaccinated and a vaccination certificate must be seen prior to commencement of treatment. Dogs cannot be treated without up-to-date vaccination records.

Our veterinary referral form must be completed by the vet and the owner. A dog will not be allowed in the pool without veterinary authorised consent. This is important to ensure each dog’s session is safe and tailored to their individual requirements.
