We now have two state of the art underwater treadmills at our centre. Both of which have dual entry/exit doors and foot placing sections on either side of the belt so that our qualified hydrotherapists can join your dog within the treadmill for added reassurance and support.
Treadmill work is great for encouraging correct flexion, extension and placement of all four paws in a controlled manner. The water can be filled to the desired level depending on both the breed and size of the dog but also to suit the desired resistance required from the water to aid the exercise.
Treadmill exercise does have a degree of weight bearing however due to the warm water it is still very beneficial towards pain management. It is extremely useful in the rehabilitation of those with heart and respiratory problems that would find the pool work to intense.
