Canine Hydrotherapy Centre - Facilities
whitehouse canine hydrotherapy
provides treatment in a relaxed and natural environment. Treatment is
'hands-on' with fully trained staff working in the water with your dog.
This means that your dog's condition can be closely monitored at all
times and their treatment carefully managed.
The large, heated
indoor pool means that even the largest breeds of dog can
swim comfortably and gain maximum benefit from the treatment.
Access to the pool is via a non-slip ramp which avoids the use
of hoists. The pool is also equipped with contra-flow jets providing
additional resistance if required. The pool is heated between
28 to 30 degrees celsius and the water quality is tested regularly
throughout the day.
Dogs are showered pre- and post-treatment.
A warm shower pre-treatment helps to warm up the joints and muscles
and acclimatises your dog to the water. Post-treatment showering
is followed by a towel and/or blow dry. It is important that following
hydrotherapy your dog is kept warm. We recommend use of a towelling/fleece
coat. These are available from whitehouse.
