About Us

What is hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy - Greek for water healing.
Hydrotherapy is a zero or low impact exercise.                                          

Water has many propeties that can aid healing,

The hydrostatic pressure can help reduce swelling and imflammation by improving circulation of oxygenated blood and lymph, removing the toxins back towards the heart to be remove as waste from the body. Therefore will reduce pain and discomfort.

The warmth of the water helps the muscles relax making it easier to move the joints and limbs more freely, increasing range of movement and flexiblity

The buoyancy of the water will support the whole body making it a zero impact exercise so it is comfortable for sore and painful joints.
                                        

 Viscocity of the water makes it a more intense exercise than moving through air.

The movement will create turbulance and resistance to aid restoration of muscle and strength. Improving fitness, mobility and general well being of your pet.

Veterinary referral

All animals must have veterinary consent prior to treatment or swimming.
This is a legal requirement for all therapists under the veterinary act 1966 and exempt order 2015.
This is to ensure that we are aware of any conditions or injuries (past or present) that maybe exacerbated by the treatment, and that the vet is happy that the treatment is suitable for your pet.

Meet Kerry Goring

The owner and Hydrotherapist
Kerry has worked in the animal care industry for over 20 years, has had many dogs and various other animals including horses in her lifetime.
She has always had a keen interest in rehabilition and help animals back on the road to recovery.
" I found out about hydrotherapy after taking my own dog following surgery for patella luxation in 2014, I started working at the pool under supervision soon after that, i went on to complete my training and qualified in 2016.
I then decided that i would open my own pool and pursue my ambition and dream job. I love my job and it is so rewarding when you see a dog that can barely walk recover and bounce around like a puppy again.
I am dedicated to provide the best treatment i can for your beloved pet. "
