Canine Underwater Treadmill

 
The Canine Underwater Treadmill

The Canine Underwater Treadmill provides low impact exercise in a reduced gravity environment. Exercise is done in water to help dogs regain strength, reduce swelling and stiffness, improve range of motion, strengthen and builds muscle on your dog. It improves circulation and cardiovascular fitness and endurance, while reducing the risk of further injury. By adjusting the height of the water, up to 60% of weight on dogs limbs can be reduced and the speed of exercise can be varied. Water also provides resistance with every stride which helps improve muscle strength.

Swimming in a pool or at the beach can lead to further injury or post exercise soreness as movement cannot be controlled. Using the Canine Underwater Treadmill dogs are in a controlled environment and specific muscle groups can be targeted. The warmth of the water in Canine Underwater Treadmill eases pain and is kept at a constant 32 degrees.

As always, we are happy to work inconjuction with other Physiotherapists for your Hydrotherapy sessions.
