Hydrotherapy 

Canine hydrotherapy soothes and relieves the effect of numerous medical conditions that dogs suffer from. As part of our pet treatments in Great Linford, Milton Keynes, hydrotherapy is a beneficial solution to give your dog the best quality of life possible. For healthy dogs, the treadmill may be used to increase their fitness and stamina. We are the only company registered in the local area of Milton Keynes to provide hydrotherapy, and  our services are delivered by a  qualified hydrotherapist .

Utilising Modern Technology

Hydrotherapy treadmills have been recognised as beneficial for human conditioning and rehabilitation. The aquatic treadmill that we use at Fido & Felix is supplied by Hydro Physio™, the leading manufacturers of both human and veterinary hydrotherapy equipment. Once your dog is comfortable and the doors are closed, this versatile treadmill allows a gradual increase of warm water to enter. It is positioned centrally in the room to give all-round visibility, which allows the hydrotherapist to assess your pet’s gait more easily.

Multiple Benefits

The glass sides of the treadmill allow our hydrotherapist to monitor your dog’s movements, and adjust the water level and speed wherever necessary to target specific joints and muscles. The treadmill is particularly useful for making the transition from water to dry land by gradually increasing the load on the affected limb. Hydrotherapy can help in the treatment of the following:

  • Cardiovascular Fitness (Lungs and Heart)
  • Cruciate Ligament Injuries
  • Degenerative Myelopathy (CDRM)
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Muscle Strengthening and Maintenance
  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Muscle Spasm Relaxation
  • Neurological Conditions
  • Obesity (in Conjunction with Diet)
  • Osteoarthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease - DJD)
  • Osteochondrosis/Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
  • Pre and Post-Operative Muscle Conditioning
  • Relief of Pain and Swelling to Muscles/Joints
