OUR PURPOSE BUILT REHABILITATION AND HYDROTHERAPY CENTRE WAS BUILT WITH THE MOST DISABLED DOG IN MIND, WITH A FOCUS ON SAFETY AND ACCESSIBILITY AS WELL AS SUPERIOR QUALITY EQUIPMENT. ALL FLOORS ARE COATED WITH A NON SLIP PRODUCT AND WALLS ARE HYGIENE BOARDED TO FACILITATE THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF HYGIENE AND BIOSECURITY.
Our heated pool was designed and built with appropriate gradient and non slip ramps both into and out of the pool, as well as resting areas within the pool where aquatic massage and physiotherapy techniques can be performed.
It is one of the largest hydrotherapy pools in the area and is carefully managed within a therapeutic temperature and in line with rigid water management and biosecurity guidelines.
All dogs swimming in our pool will be safely monitored and handled by trained and experienced hydrotherapists.
Our state of the art underwater treadmill features the latest technology and underwater treadmill advances. With programmable water height, speed, duration and the ability to add incline or reverse belt, your dog's session can be tailored to their specific rehabilitation requirements.
It is managed at 29-30°c for ultimate therapeutic benefit, and tested three times a day to ensure the highest water quality and sanitation levels.
Your dog will receive their underwater treadmill therapy with a fully qualified veterinary physiotherapist or hydrotherapist.
Our welcoming waiting room offers you the chance to relax and desensitise your dog to the centre's smells and sounds whilst waiting for your appointment. We endeavour to provide a spacious changeover time slot so that dogs are not confronted by other patients during their visit.
We have the wonderful artwork of local artists on display, and some informative literature to help you navigate your dog's arthritis journey.
In the future we will be offering a small selection of relevant products for sale such as treats, joint supplements, towelling coats, exercise equipment, etc.
