Hydrotherapy for Dogs

Hydrotherapy for Dogs

Exercise is so important to dogs. Not only is it good for them physically, it’s good for their mental health too. What if regular exercise becomes a challenge? Try hydrotherapy.

Hydrotherapy involves a dog exercising in water. He could be swimming, or he could run on a treadmill underwater. It is often used when dogs are experiencing arthritis, extreme pain, or are being rehabilitated after surgery.

Hydrotherapy is such a good option because it allows your dog to use his muscles without putting strain on his joints. Even dogs that don’t traditionally like water enjoy hydrotherapy with the right support!

If you want to give it a try, and your breed likes swimming, head to the lake! Otherwise, you can ask your vet Bee Cave TX if there’s a facility in the area where your dog can get professional support during his hydrotherapy sessions. Learn more here.
