Any New Client

We welcome clients who attend just for fun and fitness and to keep on top of their dogs weight as it is a great calorie burner too!
Many people seem to think that hydrotherapy is just for canines that are injured or have veterinary problems. This is not the case we have lots of clients who understand the benefits of swimming their dogs but also understand the health risks associated with swimming in lakes or rivers.



South Coast Hydrotherapy Centre

Hydrotherapy is suitable for dogs of ALL shapes and sizes!
Actual swimming time will depend upon the injury and fitness of the dog, normally the first time that a dog swims it will vary between 2-5 minutes, gradually increasing over visits up to a maximum of 25 minutes. A full-length session is 25 minutes but the length of the session depends on your dog’s medical condition, needs and ability. We are always guided by the best care and treatment for your dog.



What's On ...

EXCITING NEWS .........!!!
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Pet Health Scheme. For a small monthly payment your dog or cat will be able to have all their preventative health care over the year (worm and flea treatment and vaccinations) and a microchip if necessary, 6 monthly health checks with nothing to pay when you come in; and an added 10% off any other treatment they may need.

For more information please speak to anyone at Alderholt, Three Cross and West Moors surgeries or at our Hydrotherapy Centre.

Cruciate ligament injuries are a common hind leg problem in the dog. They occur in the stifle or knee. We see two types of injury. The first, and less common injury, is the sporting injury. This is the type of injury that occurs in people (especially footballers.) The dog is running along and the foot gets caught in something. The body and top half of the leg keep going, the lower half of the legs stays where it is and the cruciate ligamen...ts take all the force and rupture. The second type of injury we see is a slow stretch of the cruciate ligament that eventually snaps. The slow stretch is due to conformation and is exacerbated by excess weight.
Dogs with a ruptured cruciate will typically hold the leg up and not put any weight on the limb. Dogs under going the slow stretch may show stiffness on rising or unwillingness to exercise.
Cruciate injuries can be managed surgically or non-surgically. Which ever route you choose your dog will still suffer with arthritis and osteoarthritis as a result of having damaged the cruciate ligament.
