As the summer dawns and the sun reappears, we get our hydrotherapy pool ready for another busy season ahead.
Our small pool has a ramp access for dogs, and we have compulsory life jackets available for them to wear whilst having a dip! You can book your sessions online using either a one-time booking function for $12, or a season pass of unlimited swims for $99!
So why use a hydrotherapy pool? By swimming your dog in a pool designed for therapeutic value, you can control the movement of your dog and ensure that they are engaging in valuable exercises. Swimming at the beach is great, but with a dog moving against the waves, then with the waves, and then navigating the changing sand depths on the shore line, we can't be sure that they are moving in a way that will help them heal and build strength, and we could actually risk more damage.
Our pool is perfect for arthritic pets who love the water, pets recovering from surgeries affecting their movement and muscle tone, and pets who need to lose a few kilos in a safe and fun way!
If you're unsure as to whether our pool is right for your pet, feel free to contact our friendly reception team to find out more.
