Hydroptherapy for dogs is applied for rehabilitation from injury and accident, surgery, and is also used to build and maintain fitness for dogs who are active or competing in sports.
There are several properties of water that contribute to the many benefits to be had by the canine patient.
The buoyant force supports the dog’s weight reducing weight bearing
Movement in water is much slower on land- meaning if dogs have poor balance, they can be well supported in the water and even work on improving balance.
This viscosity also causes resistance which is very beneficial for strengthening as the dog’s limbs push through the resistance of the water
The warmth of the water (32 degrees) helps the muscles to relax, so comfort increases, joints loosen and movement is overall much easier than on land
