Hydrotherapy is a form of water therapy directed at the treatment of chronic conditions, post-operative recovery, and pre-operative or general fitness in dogs.

Hydrotherapy is beneficial for:

  • Post-operative recovery from orthopedic procedures

  • Dogs with neurological conditions

  • Pets suffering from painful osteoarthritis

  • Dogs dealing with pain due to hip dysplasia

  • Metabolic conditions such as Cushing’s and diabetes which can result in muscle atrophy

  • Paralyzed dogs

  • Helping overweight or obese pets get the exercise they need to lose weight

  • Hydrotherapy can also be used as a training tool to help working dogs reach optimal fitness levels.


Hydrotherapy for dogs is a low-impact treatment that can help improve your pup's strength, range of motion and endurance. The buoyancy properties of water minimize weight bearing stress to the joints, which helps prevent tissue injuries, inflammation and pain.
