Hydrotherapy services

Pooch-friendly pool ...

How safe is it?

Our canine hydrotherapy centre at Doggy Paddles Canine Country Retreat, is the only one of its kind on the Isle of Wight and offers great health benefits to dogs of all types and ages.

Our centre features a pool which is sunk into the ground for easy access via a ramp.  This allows the dogs to enter at their own pace and pleasure.  We use the safest active oxygen system treated water heated to 28 degrees to achieve maximum benefits.

During the session we accompany in the pool with the dog to ensure safety and comfort at all times.

Our staff are specially trained and include an experienced veterinary nurse.

What are the benefits?

As well as offering benefits to rehabilitation and fitness, hydrotherapy can also be great fun for you your dog!

And because your dog really focuses in the water, it's a great way to help with some behavioural problems too!
