Hydrotherapy for canine arthritis
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
Hydrotherapy provides an excellent treatment for dogs with painful Osteoarthritis. The resistance of the water helps to develop muscles to support the surrounding joints. Simply being in the heated water (29°C) loosens stiff muscles and reduces joint inflammation. The buoyancy of the water provides non-weight-bearing exercise for your dog, allowing your dog to exercise for longer while removing the pain impact of supporting its own weight.
