Hydrotherapy for dogs:
Hydrotherapy is also called Aqua (water) therapy. Hydrotherapy is a form of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is achieved through a dog treadmill in water. Thanks to the electrically driven dog treadmill, the dog runs flat and evenly in a large water bowl.
This therapy is offered by special practices / companies that have this large water bowl with dog treadmill. With hydrotherapy you let your dog walk under supervision in an Aquatrainer. This is a dog treadmill that runs underwater.
This therapy originated in England, where they let racing dogs swim to strengthen the dog’s muscles, reducing the chance of injuries while running and allowing the dogs to run faster. If you want to give your dog hydrotherapy you are bound to a company / practice that has this underwater dog treadmill.
Many of these companies / practices offer this in package or single treatment. The costs for this hydrotherapy for dogs are on average more expensive than 1 euro per minute.
If you want your dog to be rehabilitated by hydrotherapy you will always have to go to a practice / company to follow the therapy there. This therapy is given in a few places, which may cause a lot of travel time.
The aquatrainer consists of a large water tank with an electrically driven treadmill in the tank. The dog runs on the dog treadmill underwater which ensures a flat surface, walking in water causes the upward pressure of the water to cause less weight on the joints of the animal, making it easier to move in water.
