Aqua therapy is an excellent and effective rehab workout that strengthens muscles through water resistance, while protecting joints with low impact exercise. This rehab therapy enables pets to regain a better quality of life whether they are dealing with physical, post surgery, behavioural, or weight management issues.
Through aqua therapy, we have been successfully improving the quality of life for many pets since 2012. With extensive training and experience, our vet creates a customized workout plan, specific to meeting the desired unique health and fitness goals of your pet. The results of this effective therapy are not only physical, improving muscle strength, cardiovascular functionality, and weight management, but mental as well. Re-directing and channeling excessive energy using physical and mental stimulation results in immense improvements in behavioural conditions.
