Yes, Your Dog Can Swim!
See What a Little Dip in the Pool Can Do
Swimming can do a lot of good for your dog. Whether you own a little pup, a much older one, a competitive athlete, a sofa space hugger, or an injured dog recovering from or struggling with an illness, most dogs benefit from a little water!
At our heated indoor pool in Saskatoon, SK, our canine hydrotherapy specialist provides dogs with one-on-one attention that’s crucial to the rehabilitation process and a safe, distraction free environment to learn how to swim or simply just play their hearts out! We know that every dog is unique, which is why we give each one the special care that they deserve.
How Hydrotherapy Works
Hydrotherapy is a form of physical rehabilitation using the low-impact and high resistance properties of swimming. Proven to strengthen muscles and increase range of motion, hydrotherapy allows injured or sick dogs to safely ease into physical therapy exercise. Hydrotherapy sessions are always one-on-one supervised by a professional pet CPR certified therapist monitoring their comfort level and progress. Common ailments hydrotherapy that benefits for dogs afflicted with or recuperating from include:
Elbow and Hip Dysplasia
Hip Replacement Recovery
Arthritis and Inflammation
Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
Intervertebral Disc Disease
