Welcome to Verwood Canine Hydrotherapy Centre

Canine hydrotherapy and South Coast Hydrotherapy School

We are a canine hydrotherapy rehabilitation and training centre located on the Dorset, Hampshire border. We provide courses for students to gain the Level 3 Certificate in hydrotherapy for small animals as well as offering hydrotherapy treatments and fun swim sessions for dogs. 

Swimming sessions are offered for rehabilitation after an operation, weight loss and fitness and just for fun. Please contact us to book an appointment.

Although we are attached to Alderholt and Three Cross veterinary surgeries you do not need to be a client to receive hydrotherapy treatments, you can be referred by your own veterinary practice.

Our pre-swim information leaflet can be viewed here

If you are not registered at this practice before booking a hydro session, please download, complete and bring with you a veterinary referral form, which can be downloaded here.
